THE HVLT-R offers a brief assessment of verbal learning and memory (recognition and recall). It is easy to administer and score and is well-tolerated even by significantly impaired individuals. Its use has been validated with brain-disordered populations (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, amnestic disorders). The Professional Manual provides information on administration and scoring, interpretation (including four case examples), development and psychometric characteristics, reliability, and validity of the instrument. Raw score to T-score conversions by age group are provided in the Appendix. Six distinct forms of the HVLT-R are available, eliminating practice effects on repeated administrations. Each form consists of a list of 12 nouns (targets) with four words drawn from each of three semantic categories.
