The CAMCOG scale has been found to have excellent internal and test-retest reliability and the total score is more normally distributed and more effective in avoiding a ceiling effect than other screening instruments such as MMSE (Huppert et al., 1996).

Are the clock-drawing test and the MMSE combined interchangeable with CAMCOG as a dementia evaluation instrument in a specialized outpatient setting?
A lower baseline CAMCOG score (Mann-Whitney U test z = 2.06, P = 0.04) was significantly associated with admission to residential or nursing home care.
Praxis: A maximum score of 3 was generated by combining the responses to the MMSE constructional ability item (copying intersecting pentagons) and the ideomotor praxis items (`show me how you wave goodbye' and `show me how you brush your teeth with a toothbrush') from the CAMCOG.
This study reports the results of a CAMCOG assessment of a sample of dementia patients in contact with clinical services at baseline and after 1 year of follow-up.
Second-stage interviews using the full SCAN interview and CAMCOG were carried out by those fully trained in the use of these instruments.
In two of these, the Kendrick Battery Object Learning Task and the CAMCOG there was a statistically significant level of benefit for THA over placebo p=0.02 and 0.004, respectively, for the combined period analyses, but the other measures did not reach the 5% level of significance.
Although the performance of the test is not the performance of a perfect test, we found that CATest has better performance for detection of MiCD than MiniMental (pooled sensitivity less than 70%, accuracy 0.73) [35-37], which is the most recognized cognitive test [22] and others reported in the literature(test your memory, ACE/ ACE-R, CAMCOG) [37] and similar performance to MoCA test [25,36-38].
