DESCRIPTION: CVLT consists of three word lists: List A, List B, and a list of words to recognize. Lists A and B contain 16 words each, categorically connected and relating to supermarket items. The list of words to recognize contains 44 items including the whole List A, some words from the List B, and other words-distracters meeting defined conditions (e. g. phonetically similar to the List A words). The subject has to learn the list A by repeating it five times immediately after the presentation, then is asked to recall it after a short delay (presentation of List B), long delay (20 min., during which the subject solves non-verbal tests), and recognize on the 44 words list. Twenty-one indexes of CVLT are assessed quantitatively.

RELIABILITY: Polish standardization proves the internal consistency of the main index as well as the stability.

VALIDITY; Proved correlations with measures of cognitive functions, confirmed concurrent validity in the intergroup comparisons (concerning people with brain injuries of different localization and etiology).  

NORMS: For individuals from ages 16 to 79 (all-Poland sample).

APPLICATIONS: Neuropsychological diagnosis.

MATERIALS:
•    Kit (manual with Polish normalization, 25 recording sheets)
