Assess receptive and expressive vocabulary with confidence, and link to evidence-based interventions!

Introducing the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Fifth Edition (PPVT-5) and the Expressive Vocabulary Test, Third Edition (EVT-3), a set of single word receptive and expressive vocabulary tests.

 

For over 50 years, the PPVT™ has been trusted to quickly and easily measure a key language ability--vocabulary. When combined with the expressive vocabulary measurement of the EVT, the scores provided allow you to make direct comparisons and interpret vocabulary performance as it relates to oral language and the broad vocabulary of reading and writing.

 

While these tests are just as quick, easy, and reliable as ever, the PPVT-5 and EVT-3 have undergone some updates that make them even more efficient and relevant to today’s needs. With updated artwork, parallel forms, several word-type analyses, and available digital administration, it’s time to give the PPVT and EVT another look!


These tools offer professionals flexible options when completing screening and diagnostic evaluations as part of:

  • annual progress monitoring
  • A reading assessment process
  • An overall cognitive battery
  • A language evaluation anywhere across the lifespan
