- Yields measures of Immediate Memory Span, Level of Learning, Immediate Recall, Delayed Recall, Recognition Accuracy, and Total Intrusions.
- Raw score to percentile and normalized standard score conversions are provided.
- Normative data are provided for 12 age groups and include learning trial scores.
