- Knowledge of Memory Aging Questionnaire-Revised [ Time Frame: Within 1 week of start of program ]Measures laypersons' knowledge of memory changes in adulthood for research or educational purposes using true/false/"don't know" questions, with half of the questions pertaining to normal memory aging and the other half covering pathological memory deficits due to non-normative factors, such as dementia. Test-retest reliability and convergent and discriminant validity were established at adequate levels. Minimum value is 0, maximum value is 28, higher scores indicate better knowledge of memory aging.
- Multifactorial Memory Questionnaire (MMQ) [ Time Frame: Within 1 week of start of program ]The MMQ is a measure constructed to reflect aspects of memory that are potentially amenable to clinical intervention. The scale consists of three subscales - memory contentment, memory ability, and memory strategy use. Higher scores indicate, respectively, greater contentment, ability, and strategy use. Minimum 0, maximum 80
