The California Verbal Learning Test®—Children’s Version (CVLT®–C) is just the tool you need to assess verbal learning and memory in children and adolescents. It can be used in a variety of settings to identify learning and memory difficulties, to isolate deficient learning strategies, and to assist in designing remediation programs. CVLT–C also has its own scoring software, CVLT®-C Scoring Assistant® with Report Writer™.

CVLT–C evaluates children and adolescents who have learning and memory impairments that may have resulted from traumatic brain injury or are evidenced by mild to severe learning disabilities, attention-deficit disorders, intellectual disability, psychiatric problems, or other neurological disorders. It measures multiple aspects of how verbal learning occurs, or fails to occur, as well as the amount of verbal material learned.

Content

CVLT–C assesses verbal learning through an everyday memory task in which the child is asked to recall a list. An interference task is given, followed by short-delay free recall and cued recall trials. Free recall, cued recall, and a word recognition trial are also administered after a 20-minute delay.

Detailed Analysis

CVLT–C produces a detailed analysis of the child’s performance on recall measures, learning characteristics measures, areas of recall errors, and contrast measures.

Benefits of CVLT-C on Q-interactive

  • Create custom batteries by including CVLT-C with other tests such as the WISC-V.
  • Standardize administration with visual cues that help you read the word list at the correct pace.
  • Simplify administration by tapping correct responses on iPad rather than writing on Record Forms.
  • Obtain z-scores immediately after finishing a subtest, to increase speed and accuracy.
