LANGUAGE SKILLS ASSESSMENT TEST | 4–5 years
Assessment Test | 4–5 years
Age group: 4–5 years
The e-book Language Skills Assessment Test | 4–5 years is a reliable tool for assessing the receptive and expressive language skills of children aged four and five. The test is clearly designed to help you collect and evaluate evidence on learners’ performance and build up a picture of their language skills and deficiencies. Interpreting the results will allow you to decide on the intervention strategies that should be followed.
The e-book comprises a theoretical background, a user guide, test administration guidelines, and checklists.
The Receptive and Expressive Language Skills Tests of this e-book are informal. They are not a standardized assessment method. Nevertheless, it is necessary to be conscientious when interpreting the results because this process will determine the intervention strategies that should be followed. The correct interpretation of the results requires testers’ good theoretical background and, at the same time, the use of other clinical information. The Language Skills Assessment Test | 4–5 years is available only for professionals (speech-language pathologists).
Receptive language denotes the ability to understand information. It involves understanding the meaning of words and sentences in oral and written language.
The e-book comprises question activities testing the receptive language skills of children. To assess children’s performance, you ask them to point to the correct answer to each question. Verbal communication is not necessary here.
There are also expressive language activities. Expressive language skills involve the ability to label objects in the environment, describe actions and events, form sentences by putting words together, use morphosyntactic structures, answer questions, and tell or retell a story. To assess learners’ performance, you ask them to tell/utter the correct answer. Verbal communication is necessary.
