Read the full product description

The California Verbal Learning Test®—Children's Version (CVLT®–C) is just the tool you need to assess verbal learning and memory in children and adolescents. 


Also available in digital format under our Standard Q-interactive Licence



CVLT–C can be used in a variety of settings to identify learning and memory difficulties, to isolate deficient learning strategies, and to assist in designing remediation programs.

CVLT–C evaluates children and adolescents who have learning and memory impairments that may have resulted from traumatic brain injury or are evidenced by mild to severe learning disabilities, attention-deficit disorders, intellectual disability, psychiatric problems, or other neurological disorders. It measures multiple aspects of how verbal learning occurs, or fails to occur, as well as the amount of verbal material learned.

The CVLT-C has been co-normed with the children's category test (CCT), allowing clinicians to compare a child's memory and learning performance with higher executive functioning.


CVLT–C assesses verbal learning through an everyday memory task in which the child is asked to recall a list. An interference task is given, followed by short-delay free recall and cued recall trials. Free recall, cued recall, and a word recognition trial are also administered after a 20-minute delay.

Detailed Analysis

CVLT–C produces a detailed analysis of the child's performance on recall measures, learning characteristics measures, areas of recall errors, and contrast measures.

Scoring and reporting

CVLT–C also has its own scoring software, CVLT®-C Scoring Assistant® with Report Writer™. For scoring options, please see the CVLT®-C Scoring Assistant® with Report Writer™.
