Title: Hopkins Verbal Learning Test – Revised (HVLT-R)
Author: Jason Brandt and Ralph H. B. Benedict
Year: 1991
Description: The Hopkins Verbal Learning Test-Revised (HVLT-R) is one test with a set of six forms intended to measure verbal learning and memory in individuals ages 16 and older. It is “intended primarily for use with brain-disordered populations” (professional manual, p. 1), such as those with amnesia, Alzheimer’s Disease, or brain injury.

The HVLT-R includes the test booklets (a different booklet for each form) and the manual. The six forms of the HVLT-R are designed to allow frequent, rapid retesting. Each test includes a list of 12 nouns; the examiner reads the list to the examinee, who repeats as many words as remembered, in any order. This process is repeated three times; 20-25 minutes later, examinees are asked again to recall as many words as possible; for the final task, the examiner reads a list of 24 words (including the 12 words from the list) and asks the examinee after each whether the word was on the list.
