Auditory Processing Abilities Test [APAT]

Deborah Ross-Swain, Nancy Long

The Auditory Processing Abilities Test (APAT) is a norm-referenced auditory processing battery for use with children ages 5-0 through 11-11. It is comprised of 10 subtests that quantify a child's performance in various areas of auditory processing. The battery is designed primarily to be used by speech-language pathologists but may also be used by other professionals such as learning disability specialists, psychologists, resource specialists, and others who are trained in test administration and are interested in evaluating the auditory processing skills of children. The APAT is individually administered and can be completed and scored in less than 45 minutes.
The APAT is standardized on a nationally representative sample. It yields scaled scores and percentile ranks for subtests and standard scores and percentile ranks for the following composites: Global Auditory Processing, Auditory Discrimination, Auditory Memory, Auditory Sequential Memory, Auditory Association, and Auditory Cohesion.
The primary uses of the APAT are for:
   ● Identification of children who are at risk or who may be experiencing Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)
   ● Determination of a child's specific strengths and weaknesses among a number of auditory processing skills
   ● Documentation of a child's improvement in auditory processing abilities as a result of therapeutic interventions

Arizona Articulation Proficiency Scale - Third Revision [Arizona-3]

Janet Barker Fudala

The Arizona-3 is comprehensive, simple, and brief for ages 1 1/2 years through 18 years. It covers all major speech sounds in the English language, including initial and final consonants and blends, vowels, and diphthongs. Yet it can be administered to most children in 3 minutes, and it generates a clear-cut Total Score, which indicates severity of articulatory deviation.
To administer the Arizona-3, the examiner shows 42 spiralbound Picture Cards, one at a time. The child names objects represented on the picture cards, and the examiner scores each response according to simple quantitative rules.
Arizona-3 scores are provided in several formats - intelligibility descriptions, severity designations, percentile rankings, and standardized scores (Z-scores, standard scores, and normal curve equivalents).
The Arizona-3 is an ideal way to quickly assess articulation proficiency, select children for speech therapy, measure treatment progress, and explain language competencies to parents, teachers, and other professionals.

Developmental Test of Auditory Perception [DTAP]

Cecil R. Reynolds, Judith K. Voress, Nils A. Pearson

The Developmental Test of Auditory Perception (DTAP) is a battery of 5 item sets that measure different, but interrelated, aspects of auditory perception. The comprehensive battery is designed to assess auditory perception without invoking higher order verbal reasoning or extensive memory capacity. Items are presented via a CD to standardize presentation of the language item sets and to include various nonlanguage sounds as well.
The DTAP can be administered by psychologists, speech-language pathologists, general and special educators, neuropsychologists, and diagnosticians who are interested in examining the auditory perception status of children aged 6 to 19 years of age.
The five item sets - Phonemes in Isolation, Word Discrimination, Rhyming Sounds, Tonal Patterns, and Environmental Sounds - are divided into two auditory scales:the Language Auditory Perception Index and the Nonlanguage Auditory Perception Index. They are combined to form the Composite Auditory Perception Index.
The DTAP has empirically established reliability and validity. Testing time is 30 minutes on an individual basis or in a small group.

Barbara A. Lippke, Stanley E. Dickey, John W. Selmar, Anton L. Soder

The Photo Articulation Test - Third Edition (PAT-3) is a completely revised edition of the popular Photo Articulation Test. To administer the PAT-3, the examiner simply points to each consecutive numbered photograph and asks the child, "What is this?" The child's response is scored on the Summary/Response Form to indicate the presence or absence of errors. The elicited sounds are arranged by age of acquisition. The Summary/ Response Form groups the sounds by the ages at which 90% of the sample correctly articulated the sounds. All sounds that are tested are written in the international phonetic alphabet. In addition, consonant sounds are differentiated into the initial, medial, and final positions within the stimulus words. The results from the PAT-3 provide the clinician with a straightforward comprehensive view of each student's articulation errors. Some of the new features of the PAT-3 include full-color photos used to elicit words; stimulus pictures that appeal to students; quick test administration; and easily scored and interpreted test results. Testing time is 20 minutes on an individual basis for ages 3-6 through 9 years.

Preschool Language Assessment Instrument - Second Edition [PLAI-2]

Marion Blank, Susan A. Rose, Laura J. Berlin

The Preschool Language Assessment Instrument - Second Edition (PLAI-2) is a revision of a classic test of children's discourse abilities. Normed on a sample of 463 children residing in 16 states, PLAI-2 is based on a model of classroom discourse that emphasizes the ability of children to respond effectively to the teacher's questions and commands at varying levels of abstraction. Rather than pinpointing discrete language structures or specific vocabulary items that may require therapy, PLAI-2 results tell how effectively a child integrates knowledge of vocabulary, concepts, and language structures to deal with the full range of exchanges in classroom discourse. Teachers and speech-language clinicians alike will appreciate the ease-of-use and pragmatic information this test provides.
The PLAI-2 has two types of assessments for ages 3 to 6 years. The norm-referenced assessment (formal) report results in terms of standard scores for the subtests (called scaled scores) and an overall score (called the Discourse Ability score). The nonstandardized assessment (informal) reports percentages for behaviors that interfere with effective communication. Testing time is 30 minutes on an individual basis.

Test of Auditory Processing Skills - 3rd Edition [TAPS-3]

Nancy Martin, Rick Brownell

The TAPS-3 represents a very thorough reshaping of the Test of Auditory Perceptual Skills, Revised (previously authored by M. Gardner). The most obvious change is that there are no longer two "levels" of the test - the TAPS-3 offers seamless coverage for ages 4 through 18 years. The TAPS-3 measures what a person does with what is heard, and is intended to be used along with other tests as part of a battery. It is designed to be used by speech-language pathologists, audiologists, school psychologists, and other testing professionals.

The order of the subtests reflects a developmental progrssion of tasks from easiest to most difficult. Four new subtests have been added: Phonological Segmentation, Phonological Blending, Auditory Comprehension, and Auditory Reasoning (this replaces the Auditory Processing subtest from previous editions). New items were developed for many subtests, while some existing test items were retained. The content for other subtests has been completely revised; for example, the last subtest, Auditory Reasoning, contains all new items specifically designed to tap auditory cohesion, a higher-order process. An optional Audity Figure-Ground task has also been added as a supplemental subtest presented via CD to flag attentinon problems and give feedback about how the child's auditory processing system works in "real-world" situations. The subtests are:

  • Word Discrimination
  • Phonological Segmentation
  • Phonological Blending
  • Numbers Forward
  • Numbers Reversed
  • Word Memory
  • Sentence Memory
  • Auditory Comprehension
  • Auditory Reasoning

There are also notable differences in how scores are derived and the types of scores obtained. The use of partial credit in some subtests reflects more accurately the child's auditory abilities. In addition to one overall score, individual subtest scores are combined to derive three cluster scores: Basic Auditory Skills (Word Discrimination, Phonological Segmentation, and Phonolgical Blending subtests), Auditory Memory (Number Memory Forward, Number Memory Reversed, Word Memory, and Sentence Memory subtests), and Auditory Cohesion (Auditory Comprehension and Auditory Reasoning subtests). The introductory chapter of this manual presents and updated literature review.

The TAPS-3 remains an untimed test, can still be completed in about one hour and can be scored in about 15-20 minutes. Detailed scoring criteria are provided, with alternate acceptable answers when applicable. The TAPS-3 norms are now nationally stratified to match as closedly as possible the demographics shown in the latest US Census with regard to gender, ethnicity, residence, geographic location, and parent educational level. Norms are based data from over 2000 sudents. Indibidual subtests are reported as scaled scores, whille cluster scores (Phonological Skills, Memory, and Cohesion) and the overall score are reported standard scores; percentile ranks and age equivalents are also provided.

Test of Auditory Processing Skills - Third Edition, Spanish Bilingual [TAPS-3:SBE]

Nancy Martin

The new Spanish version of the Test of Auditory Processing Skills-Third Edition is not a translation but provides separate norms that are based on Spanish-speaking children in the United States.

The structure of the test is similar to the English version but with allowances made for language and grammar differences. Notably, the subtest in the English version that utilized compound words was eliminated because such words are extremely rare in Spanish, and new sentences with idioms were developed.

While the test is administered in Spanish to ages 5 years to 19 years and the responses are expected to be in Spanish, the examiner may use English to give directions, and English responses may be accepted if the meaning is the same as the intended response. Subtest scoring is the same as in the TAPS-3, allowing partial credit in order to reflect more accurately the child's processing abilitiy.

Test of Auditory Reasoning and Processing Skills [TARPS]

Morrison F. Gardner

The Test of Auditory Reasoning and Processing Skills (TARPS) measures the quality and quantity of a subject's auditory thinking and reasoning - the ability of a child to draw conclusions, to make inferences, and to apply and use judgment from what the child auditorily perceives. While many of the questions and statements do reflect what a child has learned from home and formal education, the purpose of this test is to determine what the child does with what he or she has learned. For example, factual information learned from home and formal education usually suggests a measure of memory but does not always measure how a child uses what he or she has learned.
This test will measure a child's ability to think logically, conceptually, and abstractly. It is the ability of a child to perceive auditory matter accurately, make sense of it, and to use judgment and common sense in bringing the matter to a conclusion.
The TARPS taps the following functions of Auditory Reasoning and Processing: General Information, Arithmetic Reasoning, Verbal Absurdities, Finding Reasons, Analogical Completions, Comprehension, Directional Orientation, and Similarities.
The TARPS can be administered by speech pathologists, language pathologists, psychologists, resource specialists, educators, optometrists, occupational therapists, teachers, and other professionals.
The TARPS can be administered to children age 5 years to age 14 years. It is quick and easy to administer (10 to 15 minutes) and to score (5 to 10 minutes). Standardization has been done on 1,200 children.
The TARPS provides norms for the complete test; it does not provide norms for test items according to conceptual group. The norms for the complete test are: age equivalent, standard scores, scaled scores, percentiles, and stanines.

Test of Narrative Language [TNL]

Merlin J. Mecham

Ronald B. Gilliam, Nils A. Pearson
Examiners assess children’s ability to remember and tell stories in three formats: stories with no picture cues, stories that correspond to sequenced pictures, and stories that correspond with a single picture of a scene. This test is different because it was designed to examine how well children use their knowledge of the components of language as they engage in functional discourse. Examiners audiotape record their administration of the TNL and later score the children’s stories as they listen to the tape. The Test of Narrative Language (TNL) is easy to administer on an individual basis to ages 5 to 12 years, and measures children’s story comprehension and oral narration in 15 to 20 minutes.

Test of Phonological Awareness - Second Edition: PLUS [TOPA-2+]

Joseph K. Torgesen, Brian R. Bryant

The TOPA - 2+, a revision of the popular Test of Phonological Awareness, is a group-administered, norm-referenced measure of phonological awareness for children ages 5 through 8 years. The scale, which can also be administered individually, has demonstrated reliability, and the test yields valid results that are reported in terms of percentile ranks and a variety of standard scores (e.g., scale scores, Normal Curve Equivalents) that can be selected based on the preference of the examiner and the purpose for which the results are to be used (e.g., identification; reports to local, state or federal agencies). The TOPA - 2+ has two versions, a Kindergarten version taking 30 to 45 minutes to administer and an Early Elementary version taking 15 to 30 minutes to administer, that measure young children's ability to (a) isolate individual phonemes in spoken words and (b) understand the relationships between letters and phonemes in English. The latter skill was not assessed by the original TOPA and is the reason the PLUS was added to the title. All new normative data has been collected and is presented.

Test of Word Finding - Second Edition [TWF-2]

Diane J. German

The Test of Word Finding - Second Edition (TWF-2) is a new edition of the Test of Word Finding (TWF), the standard in word finding assessment. Like the TWF, the TWF-2 is a nationally standardized, individually administered diagnostic tool for the assessment of children's word finding skills. The TWF-2 was developed to be administered to children 4 years through 12 years 11 months. Three forms are provided: a pre-primary form for preschool and kindergarten children; a primary form for the first and second grades; and an intermediate form for the third through sixth grades. These new norms extend the use of the TWF-2 to include Preschool age children.
The TWF-2 uses 4 different naming sections to test a student's word finding ability:
Picture Naming Nouns - an assessment of a student's accuracy and speed when naming compound and one to four-syllable target words
Sentence Completion Naming - an assessment of a student's accuracy when naming target words to complete a sentence read by the examiner
Picture Naming Verbs - an assessment of a student's accuracy when naming pictures depicting verbs in the progressive-ing and past-tense forms
Picture Naming Categories - an assessment of a student's accuracy and speed when naming objects and the distinct categories to which they belong.
To be sure that the student's word finding evaluation is based on words the student knows, the examiner uses the Comprehension Assessment to test the student's comprehension of the items missed during the naming accuracy testing.
