Product Details

Five Reasons to Choose EVT-3:

  1. Flexible options, digital or paper--with Q-global and/or Q-interactive
  2. Qualitative Analyses—five ways to help you make hypotheses about vocabulary performance
  3. Strong reliability and validity—see our "By the Numbers" document on the Resources tab
  4. Growth Scale Values (GSVs)—an objective score for measuring changes in performance over time
  5. "What's Next?" EVT-3 helps you link directly from assessment to intervention.

And even more, consider using EVT-3 with PPVT-5, its co-normed companion test for receptive vocabulary, and The Bridge of Vocabulary 2 for your intervention.

Uses & Applications

Applications of EVT–3:

  • Measure expressive vocabulary acquisition

  • Contribute useful information when assessing expressive vocabulary, as part of a language evaluation, across the lifespan

  • Contribute useful information when screening or assessing strengths and weaknesses in the specific domain of semantics (i.e., word knowledge) and general area of language development

  • Directly compare receptive and expressive vocabulary when you also administer the PPVT-5

  • Move immediately into evidence-based interventions using those embedded directly into and linked into the Q-global system

How Can I Buy EVT-3?

EVT-3 will be sold in paper/pencil and digital formats. Digital formats include:

  • Digital scoring and reporting via the Q-global system

  • Digital stimulus books and manuals via the Q-global system

  • Digital administration and scoring via the Q-interactive system

More About Our Digital Systems

Q-interactive

Q-interactive is Pearson's web- and iPad-based system for interactive, seamless assessment, scoring, and reporting. With Q-interactive, administer interactive assessments with an intuitive, portable system that uses two iPads connected by Bluetooth. The examinee views test stimuli on one iPad; you use the other iPad to access test administration directions and verbal stimuli, control visual stimuli, and record and score responses. Learn more on the Q-interactive tab.

Q-global

Q-global is Pearson's web-based system for accessing digital resources for assessment, scoring, and reporting. EVT-3 will have digital stimulus books and a digital manual available for purchase. Scoring is purchased separately. You have the option to purchase an unlimited-use 1-, 3-, or 5- year scoring subscription or individual score reports. Quantity discounts are available.

Important note: Each scoring subscription is per user and will begin on the date the first subscription from the order is allocated to the user(s) in the Q-global account. Soon after you place your order and the product is released, you will receive an email informing you that your EVT-3 digital Manual, Stimulus Book, and/or scoring are available on the Q-global platform. Other Pearson Clinical assessments available on Q-global include PPVT-5 (coming soon!), CELF-5, CELF-5 Metalinguistics, GFTA-3, KLPA-3, and GFTA-3 Spanish. Learn more about Q-global pricing.

Main Research Goals for EVT–3:

  • Maintain the basic format of the EVT–2 (e.g., two parallel forms, items presented with a stimulus question, items presented with examples of correct and incorrect responses)

  • Update normative data

  • Provide digital applications that will maintain the basic qualities of the EVT–2 (e.g., ease of administration and response capture, brief administration time, accurate scoring)

  • Refine items (for Form A and Form B) so that they (i.e., stimulus words, picture stimuli) may be applied to differing cultures within the US in the current day

  • Include item analyses that provide assessment to intervention connections

  • The Importance of Assessing Vocabulary: PPVT-5 & EVT-3 Administration & Scoring

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, Ph.D., MSEd.

    Overview

    Success in school requires age-appropriate knowledge of words and concepts, and the ability to use the knowledge for listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Unfortunately, not all children enter school with the word and concept knowledge that is foundational to learning. This presentation will focus on how clinicians can use the new Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Fifth Edition (PPVT™-5) & Expressive Vocabulary Test, Third Edition (EVT-3) to assess vocabulary size and determine the need for vocabulary instruction. The presenter will describe PPVT-5 and EVT-3 administration and scoring, and will discuss how to apply receptive/expressive vocabulary test results to plan appropriate evidence-based interventions.

    Learner Outcomes

    Based on the content of the webinar, participants will be able to:

    1. List three reasons that it is important to assess receptive and expressive vocabulary.
    2. Describe three administration and scoring rules for the PPVT-5 and EVT-3.
    3. Explain the process for using PPVT-5 and EVT-3 results to generate an age-appropriate intervention plan.
