Test all the major sounds in the English language including initial and final consonants and blends, vowels, and diphthongs.
The Arizona 3 provides a quick, reliable, and well-standardized measure of articulation proficiency in children.
Three Optional Assessment Tasks are available although they are not standardized or scored:
- Word Reading Administration
Students read target words rather than naming objects on the Picture Cards. Teenagers and adults with head injury are often more comfortable with this option.
- Language Screening Task
On the back of almost every Picture Card is a follow-up question that can be used to elicit information about the students' vocabulary and language-based cognitive skills.
- Spontaneous Speech Task
Two additional Picture Cards encourage spontaneous conversation. Use these to obtain a sample of continuous speech and analyze it for vocabulary, mean length of utterance, and other aspects of language development.
