II. ANNOTATED RESEARCH COMPENDIUM OF DRIVER ASSESSMENT TECHNIQUES FOR AGE-RELATED FUNCTIONAL IMPAIRMENTS

This section of the Notebook provides backup for the preliminary conclusions and recommendations presented in the earlier, topic area discussions relating to assessment tools and risk factors. Studies included in this section were selected on the basis of two criteria: (1) the inclusion of older drivers in the study sample; and (2) the use of crash data--or driver performance measures accepted as surrogates for crash data--as the outcome variables. For each study cited, the study's authors and study location are identified; and a summary of the study methodology and an overview of key findings are presented.

Material in the Research Compendium is organized according to type of functional test:

A. Vision

B. Attention/Perception/Cognition

C. Physical Capabilities

D. Multiple Factors

E. On-Road Dependent Measures of Safe Driving Performance

Tabs are provided at this level of organization to help locate information in the Compendium. Each tabbed page then presents a more detailed list of topics and subtopics covered in this section.
