Visual Memory - This subtest requires the examinee to recall the order in which a series of shapes appears. After reviewing a sequence of shapes, the examinee responds by clicking on the shapes in the same order as they were shown. The Visual Memory subtest is preceded by a reinforcement task in which the examinee is required to match identical shapes. This familiarizes the examinee with the shapes used in the subtest and insures his/her ability to differentiate between them. If the examinee cannot match the shapes correctly, the examiner will be given the option of omitting this subtest.
This subtest measures short-term visual memory as well as rote memory. Attention to detail and the ability to attend to a task may affect performance on this subtest.
