Cognitive elements
Language Comprehension
Subtests and
skills assessed
Receptive Language — The student must demonstrate receptive language comprehension through a variety of tasks. Some items involve following simple instructions (e.g. stand up and touch your nose), but most involve identifying pictures or words based on a prompt from the examiner (e.g. "Point to the child that is first in line" "Which word goes with mother — baby or tree?")

Expressive Language — The student must demonstrate expressive language skills through a variety of tasks. Some tasks involve picture naming, others involve using a rubric to score a student's verbal descriptions of events or interests.
Language(s) tool can
be administered in
Notes Items within each subtest are broken down into semantic items and syntax items, so some items depend on the student's background knowledge and vocabulary to answer (e.g. the student points to the picture that depicts what the examiner describes), and others depend on the student's appreciation for how proper sentences are constructed (e.g. the student determines if a sentence "sounds right"). Two forms of the test are available for pre- and post-test applications.
