The EVT is a measure of the number and types of English words that children are able to use. Your child is shown pictures and asked to answer questions about the picture such as “What do you see?” or “Tell me another word for _____”. Responses need to be single words, not sentences. The EVT can be administered to children from three years of age to adults aged ninety and older. The test will conclude after your child has made five consecutive errors. Therefore the speech pathologist will encourage your child to continue the test, whether or not their responses are correct. This assessment is administered along with the PPVT-4 and is used for comparing expressive and receptive vocabulary skills.
