OWLS-II - Oral and Written Language Scales, 2nd Edition Manual

Overview

The OWLS-II provides a complete and integrated picture of oral and written language skills across a wide age range. Developed for individuals 3 through 21 years of age, the assessment evaluates four language processes on four separate scales: Listening Comprehension, Oral Expression, Reading Comprehension, and Written Expression. Each scale assesses four linguistic structures: lexical/semantics, syntax, pragmatics, and supralinguistics.

  • Identifies students with language disorders, learning disabilities, and related difficulties as outlined in IDEA 2004
  • Assists the development of interventions that address potential academic difficulties
  • Monitors progress, using the new alternate form
  • Gathers longitudinal data for research purposes
  • Updated norms - with all scales standardized on the same population
  • Parallel forms for retesting
  • New items measuring language used in the classroom
  • New items reflecting curricular standards and grade-level language goals
  • Improved scoring instructions for the Written Expression Scale
  • Full-color, updated stimulus materials
  • Alternative correct responses for students who speak African-American English or similar dialect
  • Expanded interpretive guidelines
  • Notations indicating the linguistic forms measured by each item
  • Useful in clinical, school, and research settings
  • Includes helpful handbook: Foundations of Language Assessment
