Abstract:
Primary objective: To determine test–re-test reliability of the VIrtual Planning Test (VIP) in a group of individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Research design: Single-group repeated measures design. Methods and procedures: Seventy-five individuals with TBI were administered the VIP, with 6–8 weeks between the two test sessions. Main outcomes and results: Test–re-test reliability on VIP scoring parameters—as measured by Pearson correlation coefficients—ranged from 0.341–0.855, with five of the seven scoring parameters exhibiting r>0.6. Conclusions: Based on the findings of the current study, the VIP has overall moderate test–re-test reliability when administered to individuals with TBI. Some VIP scoring parameters, i.e. Total correct/accuracy and Total absence, demonstrated high test–re-test reliability. Others, i.e. Planning time and Total wrong order, demonstrated low test–re-test reliability. Keywords: Test–re-test reliability, executive functioning, traumatic brain injury, planning, organization
