Test of Episodic Visual Incidental Learning (TEVIL)

This is a test of declarative episodic memory for research use in participants with no or only mild cognitive impairment. It uses recognition of abstract shapes in an incidental learning paradigm. Unlike many commercial memory test it does not have a ceiling effect even with highly able participants. The TEVIL is essentially language free, the only text used is not essential and can be altered in the PowerPoint files that are used to display stimuli. Nevertheless, versions are available to download in English and in Spanish. File are compressed .rar files. Decompression software for .rar files is widely available. The TEVIL can be used free of charge.

Performance is highly correlated with formal intelligence test performance, particularly verbal intelligence. It can therefore be used as a simple measure of crystalized intelligence, intelligence in general, or simply reading ability. The test has published validity and reliability information. You can download the Spanish Lexical Decision Task, and also a file containing details and instructions for use. This can be used free of charge.
