Product Details

The CVLT is considered to be the most sensitive measure of episodic verbal learning.


  • Assess individuals who have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI), dementia, schizophrenia, ADHD, or neurological disorders.
  • Test the degree to which a person can return to work, perform complex activities of daily living, and live independently.
  • Evaluate insufficient effort or malingering to reduce false results.


Examinees are read a list of words carefully selected for their frequency of use across multiple demographic variables and are asked to recall them across a series of trials.

  • Standard and Alternate Forms can be administered in 30 minutes, with an additional 30-minutes for delay scores.
  • A Brief Form features lists of nine words in three categories and can be administered in 15 minutes.
  • Full restandardization based on education, region, ethnicity, and age.
  • Additional scores, for more in-depth analysis of errors (intrusions and repetitions).
  • Upgraded and updated scoring and reporting on Q-global for paper versions.
