This well-known test of verbal memory has now been revised. Those clinicians familiar with the original will recognise the format, with examinees being required to learn semantically related words from a 16-item list over a series of 4 trials. Features that distinguish this 2nd edition of the California Verbal Learning Test include: 

  • More comprehensive information provided by new items. In addition to recall and recognition scores, the CVLT-II measures encoding strategies, learning rates, error types and other process data.
  • Flexible administration, with parallel forms and a new short form. The alternative or parallel form prevents artificially inflated scores when re-testing is necessary and, like the standard form, takes 30 minutes to administer. The short form can be administered in 15 minutes when exam time is limited or less detailed information is needed.
  • Expanded age range for broader usage, now appropriate for individuals aged 16 years to 89.
  • Correlation with the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence (WASI) so providing valuable comparison information about the effects of intellectual ability on verbal learning and memory.
  • Computerised scoring option.
