The MATRICS™ Consensus Cognitive Battery (MCCB™) is intended to provide a relatively brief evaluation of key cognitive domains relevant to schizophrenia and related disorders.
The Brief International Functional Capacity Assessment (BIFCA) is a performance-based measure of functional capacity that assesses an individual’s ability to perform key tasks of daily living. It is designed to be used as a co-primary outcome measure in clinical trials of cognition-enhancing drugs for adults with schizophrenia and related disorders.
- Developed using a consensus process and collection of empirical data
- Demonstrated relationship to cognitive deficits and functional outcomes
- Product of multiple studies investigating psychometric properties and cross-cultural adaptability of co-primary measures
