CASL-2 Coming in November 2016!
Ideal for measuring delayed language, spoken language disorders, dyslexia and aphasia, the CASL: Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language is an individually administered, research-based oral language assessment battery. It provides a precise picture of language processing skills and structural knowledge, allowing you to document development from preschool through the postsecondary years. Because the CASL provides age-based norms, it satisfies the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requirements for identifying language impairment. 15 Stand-Alone Tests The 15 tests included in this battery measure comprehension, expression, and retrieval skills in four structural categories:
Comprehension of Basic Concepts Antonyms Synonyms Sentence Completion Idiomatic Language
Syntax Construction Paragraph Comprehension Grammatical Morphemes Sentence Comprehension Grammaticality Judgment
Nonliteral Language Meaning from Context Inference Ambiguous Sentences
Pragmatic Judgment (knowledge and use of appropriate language)
The CASL is flexible and easy to administer. The core battery can be completed in just 30 to 45 minutes, and you have the option of giving only the tests you need for a given student. The CASL requires no reading or writing- students can respond to items by speaking, pointing or marking their response choices with an “X.”
