What is a cognitive function assessment?

Why is the image cropped and why can't I see the whole screen on my phone?
The issue with cropping can sometimes happen if you are taking the test on your phone. This is due to the text size and zoom settings on the phone. The easiest way to overcome these while you complete the tests is to do the following: 1) Open the Google Chrome browser menu (the three vertical dots, usually on the top right) 2) Select Settings 3) Under advanced, select Accessibility 4) Ensure that the box which says ‘Force enable zoom’ is unchecked 5) Alternatively if you require a larger text size or magnified zoom, you may find it easier to complete the tests on a tablet, or computer
