*What is the short interval version and is it right for your patients? The standard amount of time given for the patient to respond is approximately four seconds. Short-interval versions only give the patient 2.5 seconds for the patient to  respond. It is an effective way to speed up administration time, but this version is not recommended for young children or the elderly.

**What is the difference between Forms A, B, C, and D and which one should I choose?  The W-22 lists have been recorded in four randomizations called “forms” to prevent memorization. For instance, W-22 Form A includes all four lists of 50 words for a total of 200 words. W-22 Form B includes the same 200 words in a different sequence. The same is true of W-22 Forms C and D. The W-22 Form A (the standard word list) is usually sufficient unless you plan to retest the same patient using the W-22 word list.
