An Early View into the PPVT-5
Main Research Goals for PPVT–5:
Maintain the basic format of the PPVT–4 (e.g., two parallel forms, selection of stimulus word from four-picture layout)
Update normative data
Refine the digital applications that will maintain the basic qualities of the PPVT–4 (e.g., ease of administration and response capture, brief administration time, accurate scoring)
Refine items (for Form A and Form B) so that stimulus words and picture stimuli may be applied to differing cultures within the US in the current day
Simplify administration process to save time
Include item analyses that provide assessment to intervention connections
Uses & Applications
Applications of PPVT–5:
Measure receptive vocabulary acquisition
Monitor progress of receptive vocabulary acquisition using two parallel forms or the Growth Scale Value (GSV)
Contribute useful information when assessing receptive 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 EVT-3
Move immediately into evidence-based interventions using those embedded directly into and linked into the Q-global system
