Abstract

The construct validity of the Babcock Story Recall Test (BSRT), a verbal memory measure, was examined by correlating its scores with scores on other neuropsychological tests in 71 substance abuse outpatients. Scores on the BSRT were strongly correlated with the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised Logical Memory scores, although they were also correlated with some nonmemory indexes. The results provide some support for the construct validity of the BSRT as a measure of memory for structured verbal information.
