Description

The Test of Word Finding, now in its third edition, is a norm-referenced, single-word expressive language test expressly designed to assess children’s word-finding ability. It can be used to identify students who have word-finding problems, plan word-finding interventions, and measure word-finding ability in research studies.

Features of the TWF-3

1. All new normative data were collected from 2009-to 2012.
2. New noun and verb target words have been added.
3. Studies showing the absence of racial and gender bias are reported.
4. Information about the TWF-3’s diagnostic accuracy ( sensitivity, specificity, and ROC/AUC) is provided.
5. The lexical processing model underlying TWF-3 has been updated to reflect current thinking regarding word retrieval.
6. The Comprehension Check functions as a built-in assessment of examinees’ word knowledge.
7. Students with diagnosed word-finding difficulties were included in the norming sample.
8. Three age- and grade-appropriate forms are included: the Preprimary form for preschool and kindergarten students; the Primary form for students in Grades 1 and 2; and the Intermediate form for students in Grades 3 through 6. The standardized assessment and informal analyses are integral features of comprehensive word-finding assessments.
