The Boston Cognitive Assessment (BoCA) is a self-administered computerized test intended for longitudinal cognitive monitoring. BoCA uses random never repeating tasks to minimize learning effects. BoCA was developed to evaluate the effects of treatment in longitudinal clinical trials and available gratis to individuals and professionals.

BOCA evaluates eight cognitive domains:
1) Memory/Immediate Recall
2) Memory/Delayed Recall
3) Visuospatial Reasoning / Mental rotation
4) Executive function / Clock Test
5) Attention
6) Mental math
7) Language Comprehension/Prefrontal Synthesis
8) Orientation

BOCA has been validated by multiple studies:
• Vyshedskiy, A., et al. "Boston cognitive assessment (BOCA)—a comprehensive self-administered smartphone-and computer-based at-home test for longitudinal tracking of cognitive performance." BMC neurology 22.1 (2022): 1-12.
• Gold, D., et al. "The Boston cognitive assessment: Psychometric foundations of a self-administered measure of global cognition." The Clinical Neuropsychologist (2021): 1-18.

BOCA results are presented at the end of the test and also emailed. The maximum total score is 30. Higher score indicates better cognitive performance.

Disclaimer: seek a doctor’s advice before making any medical decisions.

BOCA is available online gratis at

Developers fixed it (was Still not working)

Updated and raised stars: Devs contacted me within a few days. Had me try a new version. Still didn’t work, but on a whim I tried a different email address. Switching from iCloud to Gmail got it going. A day later dev contacted me again and said the iCloud email should work now. And it did.

Pretty slick app. I hope it continues to advance and becomes another useful tool. Great support from dev!

[original review] Heard about the app a few days ago. Installed on iPhone Mini 12 with iOS 15.5 (latest). Try to run app, screen appears to enter email address. Do that, hit start button, nothing happens. Terminate and restart, same thing. Do you need alpha testers?

Developer Response ,

Barring incidental network glitches, the app is working fine. If you have any technical issues please email
