The MEMRY is the first nationally standardized rating scale specifically designed to measure memory in children, adolescents, and young adults. It measures daily memory, learning, and executive aspects of memory, including working memory.
The MEMRY provides rapid screening for memory problems in youth, an ecologically relevant assessment of memory in everyday life, and multiple perspectives about memory capacity from different raters. The MEMRY can be used to determine whether a more comprehensive evaluation is required or as a core component of a comprehensive assessment for youth suspected of memory problems.
Features and benefits
- Features parent and teacher report (for ages 5-19 years) and self-report (for ages 9-21 years).
- Allows for the evaluation and quantification of real-world functional memory problems that can't be elicited in testing alone.
- Helps clinicians understand the impact of memory problems on daily functioning.
- Provides intervention recommendations based on MEMRY scores.
- Includes an overall score, the Everyday Memory Index (EMI), as well as scales that tap learning, daily memory, and executive/working memory and three validity scales.
- Paper-and-pencil administration can be completed quickly.
- Scale scores include T scores, confidence intervals, and percentiles.
- Normative sample included 845 youth, 450 teachers, and 1,080 parents and was closely approximated to the U.S. Census in terms of age, gender, and ethnicity.
- Clinical group analyses were conducted with ADHD, ASD, reading disability, math disability, language disability, traumatic brain injury, and intellectual disability groups.
- Validity scales are designed to flag protocols that are likely to reflect inconsistent, exaggerated, or implausible responses and include sophisticated validity indicators designed to detect exaggeration and feigning.
- Conormed with the Child and Adolescent Memory Profile (ChAMP) and the Memory Validity Profile (MVP).
