Presenting NIH Toolbox Results

  • The first mention of NIH Toolbox should include its full name and registered trademark symbol: “NIH Toolbox® for Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function (NIH Toolbox®)” Subsequent sentences should use “NIH Toolbox” without the registered trademark symbol. Abbreviate NIH Toolbox as NIHTB.
  • Report the official measure name (refer to the NIH Toolbox Administration Manual).

NIH Toolbox tests of function have four types of scores: Raw scores (or Theta scores for CAT measures), Uncorrected Standard Scores, Age-Corrected Standard Scores, and Fully Corrected T-Scores. NIH Toolbox Emotion measures use T-scores. Indicate the type of scores you are reporting.
