People with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS) often experience executive function (EF) deficits affecting daily living. The Weekly Calendar Planning Activity (WCPA) is a recently developed tool requiring management of a cognitively challenging functional task. This study sought to validate the WCPA as an assessment of functional cognition for PwMS. We established the WCPA’s discriminant, concurrent, and construct validity. Overall, it can be a useful tool to assess EF function difficulties among PwMS.
