This packet includes an checklist to informally assess conversational language skills. The target of this checklist is to determine if children who exhibit various receptive and expressive language skills during standardized testing can functionally display these skills in conversation. This is a great checklist for screening a student’s language skills as well as for comparative assessment among various settings. You can use this checklist as an observational form or your can have parents fill out the skills they do and do not observe at home.
The checklist has three assessment columns, one for baseline data and the following two columns for re-assessment data. Therefore, this checklist can be used several times to assess and reassess a student’s skills.
The conversational data collection form, is very similar to this checklist as it targets the same linguistic skills however, this form allows one to make comments and keep additional data on various skills. This sheet can be used only 1 time and great for in-class observation and data collection of current linguistic skills.
