The new Test of Expressive Language (TEXL) is a highly reliable and valid measure of a child's expressive spoken language ability. The test measures a child's ability to produce the following categories of English language forms:

 

  • Vocabulary: Word classes such as nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs, and of words that represent basic percepts and concepts
  • Grammatical Morphemes: Function words (e.g., prepositions, pronouns, determiners) and inflections (e.g., 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, including the modalities of single and combined constructions (interrogative sentences, negative sentences, active and passive voice, direct and indirect object), embedded sentences, and partially and completely conjoined sentences

 

The TEXL was co-normed with and is a companion to the Test for Auditory Comprehension of Language, Fourth Edition (TACL-4). While the TACL-4 measures a child's receptive language ability, the TEXL measures a child's expressive language ability. Because the test are co-normed, TEXL results can be meaningfully compared to those of the TACL-4. Norms for the TEXL are based on a nationally-representative sample of 1,205 children in the U.S. Percentile ranks, standard scores, and age equivalents are provided.

Kit includes Examiner's Manual, 25 Examiner Record Booklets, and Picture Book.

Examiner's Record Booklets are also available separately.
