Objective: The current study investigates the mean differences between the Raw scores of a Puerto Rican sample (Rss) with the Raw score obtained from the normative data (Rsnd) of The Clock Test (drawing phase-Tuokko Scoring Method). Method: A secondary analysis with an exploratory-descriptive design was conducted. Sample size of 119 subjects (females n = 84 and males n = 35). The sample age range was from 55 to 88 years (M = 72.26, SD = 7.89). A One Sample T-test was used to determine the mean raw scores by age groups. The sample was divided in five age groups: < 69 yrs (X ̅Rss = 5.67,X ̅Rsnd = 2.85), 70-74 yrs (X ̅Rss = 6.92,X ̅Rsnd 3.0), 75-79 yrs (X ̅Rss = 7.71, X ̅Rsnd = 3.0), 80-84 yrs (X ̅Rss = 6.06, X ̅Rsnd = 5.5), >85 yrs (X ̅Rss = 14.44, X ̅Rsnd = 6). Results: The comparison...
