What is the difference between the various levels of Cognitive Assessment Interview (CAI) anchor points such as three, four, and five?

Individuals who are generally functioning well in that they are working or going to school, but would be functioning at a higher level if their cognitive functioning were better would rate a two or a three. Individuals who are having difficulty functioning and cannot work, attend school, or socialize due to cognitive problems, but can complete activities of daily living would usually be rated a four. Individuals who are having trouble with school, work, socializing, and activities of daily living would usually be rated a five. A person with all of those functioning problems who also needs close supervision would usually be rated a six. Someone who needs constant supervision due to cognitive problems would usually be rated a seven.
