This session reviews the relevant evidence supporting performance-based cognitive testing in tele-assessment. The ages, populations, and tasks that have been investigated in tele-assessment and face-to-face mode equivalence studies are reviewed. A system used to analyze task demands and apply the available evidence to interpretation of other tests is discussed.

Best practices and ethics in performance-based cognitive and neuropsychological test selection and data interpretation are discussed. Special emphasis is placed on methods used to judge the quality of data and to gain confidence in results.
