TEST SCORES
Sentence Comprehension
The Sentence Comprehension test is used to evaluate the student’s ability to (a) interpret spoken
sentences of increasing length and complexity and (b) select the pictures that illustrate referential
meaning of the sentence. STUDENT obtained a scaled score of X. There is a 90 percent chance
that his/her true abilities fall within the range of X to X. STUDENT’s abilities on this task did/not
fall within the average for students of this age.
(If the score is below average but NOT considered a disorder then add this sentence.)
His/her performance did not, however, emerge in a range that is considered to be an area of
concern at this time.
Linguistic Concepts
The Linguistic Concepts test is used to evaluate the student’s ability to (a) interpret spoken
directions that contain basic concepts, which require logical operations such as inclusion and
exclusion, orientation and timing, and (b) identify mentioned objects from among several pictured
choices. STUDENT obtained a scaled score of X. There is a 90 percent chance that his/her true
abilities fall within the range of X to X. STUDENT’s abilities on this task did/not fall within the
average for students of this age.
(If the score is below average but NOT considered a disorder then add this sentence.)

concern at this time.
Word Structure
The Word Structure test is used to evaluate the student’s ability to (a) apply word structure rules
(morphology) to mark inflections, derivations, and comparison; and (b) select and use appropriate
pronouns to refer to people, objects, and possessive relationships. STUDENT obtained a scaled
score of X. There is a 90 percent chance that his/her true abilities fall within the range of X to X.

concern at this time.
Following Directions
The Following Directions test is used to evaluate the student’s ability to (a) interpret spoken
directions of increasing length and complexity; (b) follow the stated order of mention of familiar
shapes with varying characteristics such as color, size or location; and (c) identify from among
several choices the pictured objects that were mentioned. These abilities reflect short-term and
procedural memory capacities. STUDENT obtained a scaled score of X. There is a 90 percent
chance that his/her true abilities fall within the range of X to X. STUDENT’s abilities on this task
did/not fall within the average for students of this age.
(If the score is below average but NOT considered a disorder then add this sentence.)
His/her performance did not, however, emerge in a range that is considered to be an area of
concern at this time.
Formulated Sentences
The Formulated Sentences test evaluates a student’s ability to formulate complete, semantically
and grammatically correct, spoken sentences of increasing length and complexity using given
words and contextual constraints imposed by illustrations. These abilities reflect the capacity to
integrate semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic rules and constraints while using working memory.
STUDENT obtained a scaled score of X. There is a 90 percent chance that his/her true abilities
fall within the range of X to X. STUDENT’s abilities on this task did/not fall within the average
for students of this age.
(If the score is below average but NOT considered a disorder then add this sentence.)
His/her performance did not, however, emerge in a range that is considered to be an area of
concern at this time.
Recalling Sentences
The Recalling Sentences test evaluates the student’s ability to listen to spoken sentences of
increasing length and complexity, and repeat the sentence without changing word meaning and
content, word structure (morphology), or sentence structure (syntax). Semantic, morphological,
and syntactic competence facilitates immediate recall (short-term memory). STUDENT obtained
a scaled score of X. There is a 90 percent chance that his/her true abilities fall within the range of
X to X. STUDENT’s abilities on this task did/not fall within the average for students of this age.
(If the score is below average but NOT considered a disorder then add this sentence.)
His/her performance did not, however, emerge in a range that is considered to be an area of
concern at this time.
Understanding Spoken Paragraphs
The Understanding Spoken Paragraphs test evaluates the student’s ability to (a) sustain attention
and focus while listening to spoken paragraphs, (b) create meaning from oral narratives and text,
(c) answer questions about the content of the information given, and (d) use critical thinking
strategies for interpreting beyond the given information. The questions probe for understanding
of the main idea, memory for facts and details, recall of event sequences, and making inferences
and predictions. STUDENT obtained a scaled score of X. There is a 90 percent chance that
his/her true abilities fall within the range of X to X. STUDENT’s abilities on this task did/not fall
within the average for students of this age.
(If the score is below average but NOT considered a disorder then add this sentence.)
His/her performance did not, however, emerge in a range that is considered to be an area of
concern at this time.
Pragmatics Profile
The Pragmatics Profile is a checklist of speech intentions that are typically expected skills for
social and school interactions in classrooms. It is used to identify verbal and nonverbal pragmatic
deficits that may negatively influence social and academic communication. STUDENT obtained a
scaled score of X. There is a 90 percent chance that his/her true abilities fall within the range of X
to X. STUDENT’s abilities on this task did/not fall within the average for students of this age.
(If the score is below average but NOT considered a disorder then add this sentence.)
His/her performance did not, however, emerge in a range that is considered to be an area of
concern at this time.
CORE LANGUAGE SCORE
The Core Language score is a measure of general language ability. It quantifies a student’s
overall language performance and in conjunction with the Receptive Language Index and the
