The Multiple Errands Test: Developing, Administering and Scoring Site-Specific Versions

March 24, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

This one-day highly interactive workshop provides an opportunity to enhance knowledge on executive functioning and the Multiple Errands Test (MET). The Multiple Errands Test (MET) provides a standardized, ecologically valid approach to assessing these difficulties. The MET involves real-life tasks including shopping and collecting information while following specified rules (e.g., You should not buy more than two items at any one location). Organization, planning and multitasking difficulties are readily observable. As administration of this test takes only 30-40 minutes it is highly feasible for clinical use. The ecologically valid nature of the MET requires site-specific versions to be developed. Published papers have informed clinicians about the MET yet, to date, guidelines for developing site-specific versions have not been available.

This workshop is ideal for occupational therapists, occupational therapist assistants and neuropsychologists who work with clients who present executive dysfunction (such as survivors of acquired brain injury, stroke, schizophrenia and other brain disorders) and who wish to develop a version of the MET for their clinical site to assess the client’s ability to conduct real-life tasks.

The overall goal of this workshop is for participants to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to use the MET in their practice. Specific objectives are that by the end of the workshop participants will:
1. Be familiar with the development, construction and psychometric properties of the MET.
2. Attain basic skills in the administration, scoring and scoring interpretation of the MET.
3. Be aware of the clinical utility of the MET.
4. Have developed a version of the MET specific to their worksite.
