The Cognitive Impairment Scale performs well as a screening test for dementia. 

Someone who is poorly educated or not very intelligent may get a high score on the Cognitive Impairment Scale. This high score might reflect lifelong cognitive difficulties rather than the beginning of a decline. 

For how to use this scale, read the PAS User Guide.
