Purpose: Screen for cognitive impairment

Age: 18-100 years           

Time: MMSE-2:BV: 5 minutes; MMSE-2:SV: 10-15 minutes; MMSE-2:EV: 20 minutes

The Mini-Mental State Examination, 2nd Edition (MMSE-2) is based on the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), one of the most widely used clinical instruments for quickly detecting and assessing the severity of cognitive impairment in adults 18 years of age and older.

A new standard version that is equivalent to the original MMSE and new brief and expanded forms, the MMSE-2 retains clinical utility and efficiency while expanding its usefulness in populations with milder forms of cognitive impairment, including subcortical dementia, and the effects of aging.

The MMSE-2 is ideal for objectively documenting a client’s mental state and can be used for routine and repeated assessment of cognitive function.

Key Features

  • With three different versions available, you can select the version that best fits your patients’ needs
  • Forms are user-friendly and easy to score
  • Portable Pocket Norms Guide: T-score conversion tables, reliable change scores (at three levels of statistical significance), and mean raw score tables are provided in both the User’s Manual and the handy Pocket Norms Guide.
  • Blue and Red forms (equivalent, alternate forms) enable you to retest the same patient with reduced practice effects
  • Items have obvious relationships to functional ability in daily life.
  • The meta-analysis of studies using the MMSE that appeared in the original MMSE Clinical Guide has been expanded to incorporate studies published between 2001 and 2009 and includes effect sizes

MMSE-2 Versions

MMSE-2: Standard Version

While the structure and scoring of the original 30-point MMSE remain, problematic items were replaced and several tasks were modified to adjust difficulty level. Because the overall difficulty and raw score range remain the same as in the original, MMSE-2:SV scores and MMSE scores are comparable.

MMSE-2: Brief Version

Composed entirely of the Registration, Orientation to Time, Orientation to Place, and Recall tasks, the 16-point MMSE-2:BV can be used for clinical or research situations that call for a rapid cognitive screener and requires no stimuli for administration.

MMSE-2: Expanded Version

The 90-point MMSE-2:EV is more sensitive to subcortical dementia and to changes associated with aging; it is sufficiently difficult that it does not have a ceiling effect. Two new tasks (Story Memory and Processing Speed) have been added.
