Clock-Drawing

 

Definition: A test that requires the patient, given a pen and a circle about 6 inches across on a piece of paper, to write numbers and draw hands of a clock to show “10 past 11;” notes multiple cognitive and motor functions rather than assessing specific dimensions (memory), and allows some broad screening.
