Description: The California Verbal Learning Test, Third Edition (CVLT-3) measures both recall and recognition of two lists of words (List A and List B) over a number of immediate and delayed memory trials. It provides an assessment of verbal learning and memory deficits in adults ages 16 – 90.

The CVLT-3 is a revision of the CVLT-II. However, the target words for List A and List B remain the same from the CVLT-II to the CVLT-#. These target words were carefully selected and they have proven successful in hundreds of studies. By maintaining the same target words, researchers using the CVLT-II in longitudinal studies can seamlessly employ the CVLT-3 while also benefiting from the new process measures in the new edition. 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
