NewCat Quickstart Manual
The NewCat Quickstart Manual, available for download as a PDF document, explains how to install NewCat for both Window and macOS computers and includes step-by-step illustrated instructions for preparing and administering the test. It explains also the procedure for entering the personalized registration key that unlocks the entire test and the option for employing its use in research.
Please Note: Purchase of a registration key is restricted to psychologists qualified by training and experience to employ the test and to graduate students under their direct clinical supervision. See the Purchase page of this website for details.
Preview Versions of NewCat
Preview versions of NewCat are available as separate downloads for Windows and macOS. Only the first two subtests will be administered, scored, and used to generate test reports in PDF format. These previews are intended solely for the purpose of evaluating its features before purchase and are not to be employed for actual clinical assessments or research. Consult the QuickStart Manual for details regarding installation.
NewCat for Windows. Provided as a conventional Windows installer (.msi) file that for security has been code-signed by a Microsoft Certificate Authority. Requires Windows 10/11.
Note (06-02-2023): This Windows version of NewCat has been updated to circumvent a problem associated with the default print driver included in some recent versions of Windows 10/11 that delays or prevents some applications from launching properly. (As a rule, it is generally prudent to employ the latest version of the print driver available from the manufacturer of your printer.)
NewCat for macOS. Provided as a conventional macOS disk image (.dmg) file that for security has been code-signed and notarized by Apple. Requires macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or later, including Macs using the new M1/M2 processors.
