Test Purpose
The Arizona 3 provides a quick, reliable, and well-standardized measure of articulation proficiency in children.


Additional Assessments
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.
