Addenbrooke's cognitive examination (ACE) is a brief neuropsychological assessment of cognitive functions and a development on the Mini–mental state examination, which it incorporates.[1] The test is widely used for determining mild cognitive impairment and dementia.[2] The test includes measures of language, memory, visuospatial skills, and orientation.[3] The test does not adequately test for apraxia.[4]

The ACE is scored out of 100 possible points.[4]
