Abstract

The present analyses provide separate norms for persons ages 56 to 93 years for each story from the Logical Memory subtests of the revised edition of the Wechsler Memory Scale. Norms for immediate (I) and delayed (II) trials are presented. Following our past Mayo's Older Americans Normative Studies (MOANS) methods, we established the need for age adjustments (but not education adjustments) based on multiple regression analyses. Norms with added reliability based on the method of overlapping intervals were developed. We present means and standard deviations for 3-year interval age groups from age 61 to 88 years.
