Rey 15-Item Test

The Rey 15-Item test is a test designed by Rey (1964) to detect malingering.

The test is in the public domain.  Readers can reproduce the tests using descriptions given in texts such as Lezak, et al. (2012) and Strauss, et al. (2006).  Subscribers to NeuropsychologySA can also access the test, including the administration and scoring instructions here.
