At the cut-off of 88, Elamin and colleagues[12] found the ACE-III distinguished early-onset dementia from healthy controls with high sensitivity (0.915) and specificity (0.964), and also from subjective memory impairment with high sensitivity (0.915) and specificity (0.867). An ACE score is a tally of different types of abuse, neglect, and other hallmarks of a rough childhood. An ACE score is a tally of different types of abuse, neglect, and other adverse childhood experiences. The ACEs test identifies major risk factors that may result in the development of social and health issues. 0000041472 00000 n trailer The ACE-III was developed to improve the performance of certain parts of the test and also to avoid a potential copyright violation by replacing the elements shared with the MMSE. 0 [2] It is scored out of 100, with a higher score denoting better cognitive function. 0000030565 00000 n iii iv. %%EOF The ACE-III has been validated against standard neuropsychological tests and has been shown to be a valid cognitive screening tool for dementia syndromes. What is an ACE Score? 0000002561 00000 n The ACE-R was a development of the earlier ACE which also incorporated the MMSE, but had clearly defined subdomain scores. As your ACE score increases, so does the risk of disease, social and emotional problems. The total score of the M-ACE is 30, with higher scores indicating better cognitive performance. The use of the Mini-ACE test is not prescriptive, but it is the recommended tool in New Zealand’s Health Pathways for health professionals in General Practice and non-specialist settings when they are using a simple cognitive test as part of a broader assessment of changes in cognition and functioning. [5] The ACE also incorporated the MMSE, such that this score (out of 30) might also be generated.[2][4]. 0000002722 00000 n The Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination (ACE) and its subsequent versions (Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination-Revised, ACE-R[1] and Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination III, ACE-III) are neuropsychological tests used to identify cognitive impairment in conditions such as dementia. For example, the three-stage-command has been replaced by a short graded test of grammatical comprehension and the overlapping pentagons have been replaced by another drawing. Use the table provided on the ACE-III sheet to obtain the final score for this test. Attention is tested by asking the patient for the date including the season and the current location; repeating back three simple words; and serial subtraction. Think of it as a cholesterol score for childhood toxic stress. 0000002757 00000 n <> 79 0 obj <>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]>> 74 0 obj What is the “ACE Study”? [17][18], Based on the results of a 2019 Cochrane meta-analysis of available studies the Mini-ACE should only be used as a adjunct to a full clinical assessment and not alone for the screening of dementia or mild cognitive impairment in patients presenting with or at risk for cognitive decline. [16] It has been found to be superior to the MMSE in diagnostic utility. The study's researchers came up with an ACE score to explain a person's risk for chronic disease. endobj 0000034978 00000 n 82 0 obj [4], The ACE encompassed tests of five cognitive domains: attention/orientation, memory, language, verbal fluency, and visuospatial skills. 0000011040 00000 n The administration of the M-ACE takes approximately 5 minutes, and scoring should not take longer than 1-2 minutes. 0000013417 00000 n 73 34 The current version of the test is the Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination-III (ACE-III). 0000000976 00000 n [/ICCBased 97 0 R] To calculate the ACE score using the binary version, check the participant's answers against Table 1 in "Calculating the ACE score from the ACE-IQ" (see below). ", Memory is tested by asking the patient to recall the three words previously repeated; memorising and recalling a fictional name and address; and recalling widely known historical facts. 76 0 obj <>stream i. ii. A score of 21 or less is almost certainly diagnostic of a dementia syndrome regardless of the clinical setting. 0000000016 00000 n endobj Editor’s Note: Because this test and insights are a developing project at ACEs Too High, ...
