Abstract

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

To determine test-re-test reliability of the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test-Revised (HVLT-R) in a group of individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI).

RESEARCH DESIGN:

Single-group repeated measures design.

METHODS AND PROCEDURES:

Seventy-five individuals with TBI were administered the HVLT-R twice, with 6-8 weeks between the two test sessions.

MAIN OUTCOMES AND RESULTS:

Test-re-test reliability on HVLT-R scoring parameters ranged from 0.537-0.818, with seven of the eight scoring parameters exhibiting r > 0.6. At re-test, scores did not significantly change on any of the eight HVLT-R scoring parameters.

CONCLUSIONS:

HVLT-R use with individuals with TBI is supported. Test-re-test reliability of total recall and delayed recall sub-scores was particularly high.
