TACL-4 - Test for Auditory Comprehension of Language–Fourth Edition Manual

Overview

The Test for Auditory Comprehension of Language-Fourth Edition (TACL-4) is a reliable and valid measure of a child's receptive spoken vocabulary, grammar, and syntax.

  • Measures children's ability to understand three language forms: Vocabulary, Grammatical Morphemes, and Elaborated Phrases and Sentences
  • All-new normative data were collected in 2012 and 2013 and were stratified by critical variables reported for the preschool and school-age population reported in the Statistical Abstract of the United States 2013 (ProQuest, LLC, 2012)
  • The age-range of the test was extended upward to include ages 10-0 through 12-11
  • Age-related entry points, basals, and ceilings ensure that testing time is kept to a minimum and children are only tested on the items that are optimal for their ability level
  • Floor effects and ceiling effects present in the subtests of the third edition were addressed by the addition of both easy and difficult items to the test
  • Each item on the test was re-evaluated using both conventional item analyses to choose "good" items, and the new differential analyses to find and eliminate potentially biased items
  • A major effort has been made to demonstrate conclusively that the fourth edition is both reliable and valid
  • A copy of the Critical Reviews and Research Findings for TACL: 1965-2013 is included with each test kit
