Success also has been noted for participants who did not see an increase in their RBANS scores.

First, analyses of variance were used to compare the valid RBANS group with the invalid RBANS group on RBANS performance.
These analyses were run twice, first using the RBANS Total Score and then using a computed score eliminating the RBANS indices that included scores used to calculate the RBANS EI.
The RBANS is a paper and pencil test that takes roughly 25 minutes.
This resulted in final selection of the following tests: RBANS Coding, logTMT A, MoCA Total Score, Semantic Fluency, Clock Draw, RBANS Figure Copy, and World Backward.
A previous study has found that the Chinese version of the RBANS is reliable and valid.
Measures of memory were the immediate and delayed story recall from the RBANS and immediate recall from the RCFT.
Postintervention, the exercise group showed significant improvements on the RBANS coding subtest, which measures information-processing speed, and on the quality of life depression and mood swing measures.
The original scores (including the subscale scores and the total score) were transformed into scales with a theoretical range in scores from 40 to 160 using the corresponding percentage mapped on to the distribution of the RBANS scores from a previous study.
Reliability and validity of the RBANS in a traumatic brain injury sample.
Most recently GTS-21 has been shown to improve RBANS score in a phase 2 study of schizophrenia patients.
