Wide Range Assessment of Memory and Learning (WRAML-2)
Authors: Wayne Adams, PhD / David Sheslow, PhD
The Wide Range Assessment of Memory and Learning allows users to become familiar with memory function and dysfunction across development and alleviates the need for two different memory tests to accommodate adults and children.
Some subtests have been added (Verbal Working Memory and Symbolic Working Memory) to match contemporary interests in the clinical evaluation of memory function,while other subtests have been made optional (e.g., Sentence Memory) or limited to a specific age group (e.g., Sound-Symbol for those 5-8 years of age.).
Administration and Scoring
A Screening Battery, consisting of four subtests from the Core Battery, provides an overview of memory functioning. Several subtests supplement the Core Battery, allowing you to choose additional subtests and indexes to facilitate qualitative analyses.
The Core Battery consists of only 6 subtests and requires well under an hour to administer (a 4-subtest Memory Screening measure is also available) and provides an overview of memory functioning. The WRAML-2 subtests yield a General Memory Index as well as indices for Attention and Concentration, Verbal Memory, Working Memory, and Delayed Memory. Task stimuli include letters, numbers, words, sentences, stories, pictures, designs, and symbols. The Delayed Memory subtests utilize both recall and recognition tasks.
