Wide Range Assessment of Memory and Learning, Second Edition (WRAML2) - Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take?
The WRAML2 can be tailored to meet the clinician’s needs. There is a screening version (4 subtests) which yield Verbal and Visual Memory Indices, along with an overall Screening Index. Administration time for an experienced clinician, depending on the client’s pacing, is around 20-30 minutes.
The standard battery is 6 subtests and yields, in addition to the Verbal and Visual Memory Indexes, an Attention/Concentration Index and a General Memory Index. Total time is around 35-40 minutes. For those wanting more qualitative and comparison data (e.g., a comprehensive n-p battery), the standard battery and all optional subtests take about 60-70 minutes.
What is the best way to interpret the scores?
In addition to material in the accompanying manual there is an Essentials book (Wiley) on the WRAML2 (and TOMAL), co-authored by Wayne Adams and Cecil Reynolds. The WRAML2 portion of that book provides a thorough overview, practical how-tos, cautions, and interpretive paths to consider.
How does the WRAML2 differ from other Pearson products that assess memory?
The WRAML2 is a lifespan product (ages 5-90 years) that quickly and efficiently allows clinicians to assess memory function vs. WMS-IV (ages 16-90) and CMS (ages 5-16).
