The Psychology Experimental Building Language Berg Card Sorting Test is an open-source neurobehavioral test. Participants (N?=?207, ages 6 to 74) completed the Berg Card Sorting Test. Performance on the first 64 trials were isolated and compared to that on the full-length (128 trials) test. Strong correlations between the short and long forms (total errors: r?=?.87, perseverative response: r?=?.83, perseverative errors r?=?.77, categories completed r?=?.86) support the Berg Card Sorting Test-64 as an abbreviated alternative for the full-length executive function test.
