Product Details

Explore learning and memory strategies and processes

The CVLT-3 is the most comprehensive and detailed assessment of verbal learning and memory for older adolescents and adults ages 16 and older. In this assessment, an examinee listens to series of words and is then asked to recall the terms and the category to which they belong. The CVLT is considered to be the most sensitive measure of episodic verbal learning.

Users & Applications

Clinicians can use the revision of this classic test to help:

  • Assess individuals who have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI), dementias, 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

Content & Administration
