The Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR®) Scoring Table provides descriptive anchors that guide the clinician in making appropriate ratings based on interview data and clinical judgment. In addition to ratings for each domain, an overall Global CDR Score may be calculated through the use of an CDR Scoring Algorithm or by using the official scoring rules. This score is useful for characterizing and tracking a patient’s level of impairment/dementia:

0 = Normal

0.5 = Very Mild Dementia

1 = Mild Dementia

2 = Moderate Dementia

3 = Severe Dementia
