A measure of visuospatial memory, the BVMT-R can be used as part of a large neuropsychological battery, as a screening measure, and as a repeat measure to document changes over time.
Reliability coefficients range from .96 to .97 for the three Learning trials, .97 for Total Recall, and .97 for Delayed Recall. Test-retest reliability coefficients range from .60 for Trial 1 to .84 for Trial 3. The BVMT-R correlates most strongly with other tests of visual memory and less strongly with tests of verbal memory.
The HVLT-R/BVMT-R SP provides unlimited scoring and reporting for both instruments after hand-entry of an individual’s raw scores.
Note. Stopwatch is required for administration.
