Table 3 Hayling sentence completion test scores calculation [3]

From: Arabic version of the Hayling sentence completion test: scale validation, normative data and factors associated with executive functions in a sample of the Lebanese adults

A first transformation of results (response time and number of errors for each participant) via (LOG10 + 1) ➔ A for response time and B for number of errors.
Second transformation using formulas mentioned in the French version:
a. Response time: ŷ = A + (0.002x age) - (0.008x education)
b. Number of errors: ŷ = B + (0.003xage) - (0.02x education)
Z score calculation using the second transformation
Classification depending on Zscores:
a. ≤ −1.65 pathologic;
b. [−1.64 → -1] limit;
c. [− 0.99 → + 0.99] normal;
d. [+ 1 → + 1.64] superior;
e. ≥ + 1.65 very superior.
