How is the CPT scored?


Each subtask is scored on a scale of 1-6. Add each of the scores together and divide by # of subtasks given, which will give
the total score. The total score represents the client’s cognitive functional level to help determine desired occupations, roles,
and treatment plans that will be appropriate to match the client’s cognitive performance level.
