The Dysexecutive Questionnaire (DEX) is a measure of executive function and is used in the assessment of dysexecutive syndrome.

It is a 20-item questionnaire designed to sample emotional, motivational, behavioural and cognitive changes in a subject with DES[1]. One version is designed for the subject to complete and another version is designed for someone who is close to the individual, such as a relative or caregiver[1][2]. Instructions are given to the participant to read 20 statements describing common problems of everyday life and to rate them according to their personal experience. Each item is scored on a 5-point scale according to its frequency from ‘‘never’’ (0 point) to ‘‘very often’’ (4 points)[3].
