The RBANS has become increasingly utilized in various populations since it reliably assesses individual neurocognitive domains in a rapid, efficient manner. The present study examined the convergent validity of the RBANS to frequently administered instruments in a moderate-severe traumatic brain injured (M-S TBI) sample. Fifty-seven individuals who sustained a M-S TBI were included in this study. The RBANS subtests showed moderate to strong internal reliability within the sample. Most of the subtests displayed moderate to strong correlations with the other neuropsychological tests, including the CVLT-II, COWAT, and WAIS-III subtests. The strongest correlations were within the RBANS Attention Index, with both the Digit Span and Coding subtests showing strong correlations with their WAIS-III counterparts. The RBANS measures distinct abilities that supplement other neuropsychological instruments that assess similar functions within a TBI sample. In addition to its administration advantages, the results of this study provide support for the use of the RBANS as a clinical valid and reliable tool in the brief screening of individuals with M-S TBI.
