California Older Adult Stroop Test (COAST)
License to Administer

Purchase COAST License to Administer if you plan to administer the COAST via a paper survey. You reproduce, administer, and score the COAST yourself.

Since the color of the Stroop stimulus is very important, you will need to print the pdf on a photo quality printer on photo paper.

We charge $40 for you to reproduce one COAST card set from the pdf file. Additional card sets can be reproduced at a cost of $10 each. A COAST card set can be used with an unlimited number of clients.

In addition to purchasing this PDF, you will need the following to administer the COAST:

  • Stopwatch
  • Printer with color print capabilities
