The aim of this study was to translate and cross-culturally adapt the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test (HVLT, Brandt, 1991) that measures long-term memory for verbal stimuli. The main reason for adapting HVLT was the need for a simple, fast to administer, and valid instrument with Polish norms that will well serve screening for memory impairment. We examined the convergent validity of the HVLT by relating it to the California Verbal Learning Test (Łojek & Stańczak, 2010) and discriminant validity by relating it to several measures of cognitive abilities (i.e. Rey Complex Figure Test, Trail Making Test, and the Digit Span test of WAIS-PL). We adapted two parallel versions of HVLT for the purpose of longitudinal measurement. The HVLT is particularly useful for screening older adults for Mild Cognitive Impairment and early stages of various types of dementia, we thus created Polish norms for older adults in their seventh, eight, and ninth decades separately.
