The Receptive Subtest requires the student to point to one picture out of six that best represents the stimulus word. Begin with Picture Plate A, item 1 and test until the student fails two items in a row. Use the same procedure for all picture plates B–J. The Expressive Subtest requires the student to give an oral definition of the stimulus word. Begin with item 1 and continue until the student fails three items in a row. A basal is established when the student passes three items in a row. All items below the basal are considered correct even if the student missed items below the basal.
This test may be administered and interpreted by anyone who is reasonably competent in the administration of tests in education, language, and psychology and who is thoroughly familiar with the manual, especially the sections about the use of norms and interpretation/reporting of scores.
