Product Details

The Test of Word Knowledge (TOWK) identifies students who lack (or excel in) the semantic skills and repertories that are the foundation of mature language use in thinking, learning, and communication. It also provides a valuable criterion measure for evaluating residual or recovered semantic knowledge following traumatic head injury or acquired aphasia. TOWK evaluates knowledge of figurative language, multiple meanings, conjunctions and transition words, receptive and expressive vocabulary, and more.

You can evaluate specific problem areas or administer all subtests as a comprehensive assessment of semantic skills.
