Description Tower of London (ToL) is a three-dimensional performance non-verbal test of executive functions (more precisely planning or problem solving). The test is intended for adult persons from 18 years of age to old age. The Czech version of ToL is a long-awaited standardized tool with relatively adequate Czech norms. It is easily administered, with a relatively short administration duration and with high-quality test materials. An indisputable advantage of the test is its availableness. One matter of concern is its reliability, but low reliability can be anticipated for tests of executive functions. Validity of the method seems to be adequate for assessment of planning disorders. Despite certain limitations we can recommend ToL (with a certain caution) for usage by professionals.
