Assessments developed at SCORE
Hopkins Action Naming Assessment (HANA)
The HANA is a verb naming assessment that consists of 30 black and white images of actions. The items are matched in frequency and length to the 30-item version of the Boston Naming Test (Mack et al., 1992).Materials

Hopkins Auditory Comprehension with Context Assessment (HACCA)
The HACCA is designed to assess a patient's ability to comprehend brief discourse (1-3 sentences) and simple commands with varying levels of contextual support. It is currently in development at the SCORE lab. Click in the center of the slide for the auditory stimulus.Materials
Kissing & Dancing Test - Short Form
The Kissing & Dancing Test 15-item Short Form is brief assessment targeting the semantic association of verbs based on the full Kissing & Dancing Test (Bak & Hodges, 2003). The short form has been used many times in the SCORE lab, but separate norming data have not been published.Materials
Language Use Survey from Hopkins (LUSH)
The LUSH is designed to determine pre-injury use of written and spoken language, to determine if this variable influences recovery of language after stroke. It can be completed by the individual who has had stroke (“the patient”) or by a family member or close friend if the patient has current language difficulties.Materials
Morphosyntactic Generation test (MorGen)
The MorGen is an assessment designed to probe differential production of high-frequency nouns, proper names, modifiers, and bound inflectional morphemes. It consists of a training phase and a feedback-free 60-item response phase using 6 high-frequency nouns.Materials

New Cookie Theft Scoresheet
An updated, colorful, and more “politically correct” version of the Cookie Theft picture recently was produced by Miro, and included additional events (e.g., dog eating cookies from the floor, cat chasing birds in the lawn, mother mowing over flowers while talking on her cell phone).Materials

Shorter and longer sentences for reading and repetition.Materials
Pyramids & Palm Trees Test - Short Form
The Pyramids & Palm Trees Test 14-item Short Form is brief assessment targeting the semantic association of nouns based on the full Pyramids & Palm Trees Test (Howard & Patterson, 1992).Materials
