Abstract

Stability of performance on the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test (HVLT) was assessed in 45 healthy elderly subjects over a 9-month period. Stability coefficients were moderate but statistically significant for total recall (r = 0.50), true-positive recognitions (r = 0.66), and false-positive errors (r = 0.42). These correlations are comparable to test-retest correlations reported for other clinical tests of verbal memory (e.g., Logical Memory subtest of the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised, California Verbal Learning Test) and are sufficient for its clinical use.
