The Hopkins Verbal Learning Test–Revised™ (HVLT-R™) and the Brief Visuospatial Memory Test–Revised™ (BVMT-R™) are now available for scoring on PARiConnect. The HVLT-R assesses verbal learning and memory, while the BVMT-R measures visuospatial memory. Both tests are neuropsychological assessments that can be used together as part of a battery.
HVLT-R and BVMT-R Score Reports generated by PARiConnect provide:
A score summary table that provides raw scores, T scores, and percentiles
A raw score profile
A T-score profile
Save valuable clinical time by letting PARiConnect handle the scoring. Now you can easily score these assessments online and without the expense of software or licenses. Learn more about the HVLT-R and the BVMT-R now!

Dementia is one of the most devastating diagnoses a patient and family can receive. It is a major cause of disability and dependency among older people worldwide, and nearly 10 million new cases are diagnosed globally each year. Early screening of dementia symptoms in older adults is critical to ensure timely treatment and intervention—and to minimize the impact on the patient and family.
PAR’s new neuropsychological assessment instrument, the Older Adult Cognitive Screener (OACS), will help you serve your older patients and their families with quicker answers. An all-digital informant rating scale, the OACS is designed for early screening of dementia symptoms for patients ages 55–90 years and will assist with follow-up determinations, including initiating or referring your clients for comprehensive diagnostic testing. Results are based on the observations and knowledge of a reliable caregiver, family member, or friend (e.g., spouse or home health care worker).
How does the OACS help you screen for neurocognitive impairments?
1. Administration and scoring are rapid and reliable.
Raters can complete the items in only 5–10 minutes online, and scoring is instant via PARiConnect. Change Reports are available to help you track change over time.
2. The OACS is entirely digital, ideal for telehealth and social distancing.
Another significant advantage of the OACS is its digital format, which aligns well with today’s telehealth models and enables you to continue testing even when social distancing is required. Plus, because the OACS is administered through PARiConnect, data are easily exported into an electronic medical record (EMR) system.

3. Items map onto DSM-5 domains.
The OACS is the only neurocognitive screener with items that map directly onto the six principal domains of neurocognitive function identified in the DSM-5®: executive function, complex attention, language, perceptual–motor, social cognition, and learning and memory. An additional item addresses activities of daily living (ADLs) to help you determine how the patient performs common physical tasks.
Why should I use the OACS?
Designed to be used in medical settings by primary care and specialty physicians, the OACS can also be administered and scored appropriately by nursing staff and properly trained clerical staff. It is also useful for clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, and others who treat older adults on a clinical basis in a variety of mental health settings, including nursing homes and community mental health centers.
It was developed by trusted authors Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD, and Erin D. Bigler, PhD, to provide a rapid, cost-effective, and valid means of screening older adults for cognitive dysfunction.

Life is all about making choices. The Trails-X improves on traditional trail-making tests by allowing individuals to truly blaze their own path—they select a start and create their own path to success. Effectively measuring an individual’s executive planning through a more realistic task, the Trails-X assesses both executive planning skills and efficient decision-making in less than 10 minutes for individuals age 8 to 79 years.
The Trails-X is an innovative take on the traditional trail-making task that includes additional executive function demands by requiring examinees to connect circles of alternating colors with no designated start or end point.
Individually administered, the Trails-X offers nine trails that assess adaptive planning, coupled with psychomotor speed, cognitive flexibility, impulse control, flexible attention, and the ability to adapt to novel or changing situations. The examinee is asked to draw straight, nonoverlapping lines connecting circles of alternating colors and continue until all circles are connected. Individuals must work carefully to avoid crossing lines or being forced to discontinue before the task is complete. Examinees must plan their path and adapt while working as quickly as possible.
Are you heading to New York City for the 47th International Neuropsychological Society (INS) Annual Meeting?
Don’t miss Dr. Jennifer Greene’s discussion about using base rates, profile analysis, and interrater discrepancies to enhance interpretation of the BRIEF-Preschool Version on Thursday, Feb. 21 from 8 to 9:15 a.m. in the Broadway Ballroom South and Majestic Complex.
Published in 2003, the BRIEF-P is used to assess executive function in children ages 2 to 5 years, 11 months. A single rating form (also available in Spanish) is used with parents, teachers, and day care providers to rate a child’s executive functions in the home and preschool environments.
The instrument helps assess emerging learning disabilities and attention disorders, language disorders, traumatic brain injuries, lead exposure, and pervasive developmental disorders/autism.
The BRIEF-P is part of the BRIEF family of products, which includes the BRIEF2 and the BRIEF-Adult Version. BRIEF instruments have been translated or adapted for use in more than 60 languages on six continents, and the BRIEF2 is the gold-standard assessment of executive function in children ages 5 to 18 years.
