In brief: Tests several areas

The clock drawing test involves asking someone to draw the face of a clock and put the hands at a specific time.
This tests attention, memory and the ability to plan, sequence and carry out an overlearned task. It tells us about visual spatial abilities and other areas of brain functioning.
