20 WORD RECALL TEST
Memory reVITALIZER has been used in two blinded studies where the improvement in memory capacity was often appreciated as early as one month. The 20WRT (20-word-recall-test) was one of the memory instruments used in these studies. Please note there are eight (8) lists to discourage long-term learning, and allow a subject to take the test numerous times to measure change in memory capacity.
Subjects will be presented with a list of 20 one or two syllable words at two second intervals and asked to recall as many of the words in any order within two minutes. Maximum possible score is 20 with a mean of 6.86 words (SD= 2.45).
“I am going to read 20 words. Listen carefully and repeat the words after me. When I am finished, you must repeat back as many words as you can remember in any order you wish. This is a somewhat difficult test, so do not be discouraged if you cannot recall many words, just give it your best guess or recall. Are you ready?”
