Measures a child’s expressive, spoken language ability.
Elizabeth Carrow-Woolfolk and Elizabeth A. Allen
- Age Range: 3.0 through 12.11 years
- Time: 20-30 minutes
Three TEXL subtests measure a child’s ability to produce:
- Vocabulary–word classes such as nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs, and words that represent basic percepts and concepts
- Grammatical Morphemes–function words (prepositions, pronouns, determiners) and inflections (bound morphemes such as noun number and case; verb number and tense; noun/verb agreement, and derivational suffixes)
- Elaborated Phrases and Sentences–syntactically-based word relations, and elaborated phrase and sentence constructions (interrogative sentences; negative sentences; active and passive voice, direct and indirect object), embedded sentences, and partially (and completely) conjoined sentences
Each item is composed of a word, or sentence, and a corresponding picture plate. The examiner reads the stimulus, aloud, and the subject is asked to answer a question, finish a sentence, or combine sentences, based on the stimulus. Items are in order of difficulty, within each of the three subtests. Age-related entry points, basals and ceilings ensure that testing time is kept to a minimum, and children are only tested on items optimal for their ability level.
