International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v2 n1 p54-63 2014
The goals of this study were to adapt the Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test (AVLT) into Arabic, to compare recall functioning among age groups (6:0 to 17:11), and to compare gender differences on various memory dimensions (immediate and delayed recall, learning rate, recognition, proactive interferences, and retroactive interferences). This version was based on the English and the Hebrew versions (Baron, 2004; Vakil, Blachstein, & Sheinman, 1998) maintaining the principles that characterize the original test's word list. Six hundred and forty subjects (331 males and 309 females), ages 6 to 17, whose mother tongue is Arabic, were selected from various places in Israel. Both "t-test" and ANOVA were employed to examine gender and age differences. Findings were similar to those of other languages: there was an increase in most of the scores as the age of the youngsters increased, and the girls' performance was generally higher than that of the boys. We concluded that the AVLT-Arabic version can be used for diagnosing memory skills of Arabic-speaking children.
