How it works?

  • Your healthcare practitioner will send you a link via email, or schedule an in-person appointment to administer the cognitive assessment

  • Before you begin, you’ll be prompted to review instructions and details regarding steps for taking your cognitive assessment, as well as how long the assessment will take.

  • Upon reviewing the instructions, you’ll move on to the interactive tutorial for the first task. You may repeat this tutorial multiple times to ensure you're comfortable with the task instructions.

  • Once you’ve completed the tutorial, you’ll be asked to complete the task. Once the assessment is complete, a report will be generated and sent to your practitioner for review.

Frequently Asked Questions

I feel like I did not do well on my assessment - should I be concerned?

You should not be concerned if you feel you did not do your best – there is no such thing as “best” for this type of assessment. The tasks are designed to be challenging and to assess your limits by getting increasingly difficult as you answer questions correctly. Please be aware that this is only a snapshot of your cognition at the moment you are completing the assessment and that cognitive performance tends to fluctuate naturally from day to day depending on many factors (like your sleep quality, stress level, nutrition, exercise regiments, etc.).

I could not complete my assessment due to an interruption or technical issue - what should I do?

If you’re interrupted or experience a technical issue during the assessment, contact your healthcare practitioner and describe the situation, as well as the task you were on, so that results for that specific task can be interpreted appropriately. If you experience a technical issue that prevents you from accessing the assessment, let your practitioner know the operating system and browser you are using.

How long does the assessment take?

Assessments can vary in length depending on the number of tasks your practitioner has chosen. A four-task assessment will take roughly 15 minutes, while a full 12-task assessment may take approximately 40 minutes. You can view the approximate length of the assessment on the first page of your assessment.

How will my practitioner use the results?

Creyos Health is used in a variety of different ways, ranging from annual monitoring of your cognition to evaluating recovery from injury to validating treatment plans or interventions designed to improve your brain health. We encourage you to speak with your healthcare practitioner to learn more.

Are the Creyos Health tasks valid and reliable?
