The Syndrom Kurztest SKT is a brief neuropsychological test battery that consists of nine subtests and defines two independent factors of memory and attention deficit. The aim of this study was to validate the Korean version of the SKT. The reliability of each subtest among three parallel Forms (A, B and C) of the Korean version was high (r = 0.46-0.95). The SKT had good concurrent validity with the Mini-Mental State Examination (r = -0.83, p < 0.001). Factor analysis confirmed the presence of two primary factors, memory and attention. The overall similarities of the factor structures for the Korean data and those for the data from Germany and the USA provide evidence of the transcultural stability of the SKT.
