An efficient measure of Spanish vocabulary based on the widely used PPVT
Based on the popular PPVT-R, TVIP contains 125 translated items to assess the vocabulary of Spanish-speaking and bilingual students. Items were carefully selected through rigorous item analysis for their universality and appropriateness to Spanish-speaking communities.
TVIP is easy to administer and score
TVIP is easy to administer and score and does not require reading, verbal, or written responses. To administer an item, simply show a plate in the test easel and say a corresponding stimulus word. The student responds by pointing to one of the pictures. The manual is available in English and Spanish. Norms are available for both combined and separate Mexican and Puerto Rican standardization samples.
Use TVIP for:
- Evaluating the language development of Spanish-speaking preschool children.
- Screening Spanish-speaking children entering kindergarten or first grade.
- Providing clear Spanish-language information for bilingual students.
- Evaluating the Spanish vocabulary of older students.
