The TOLD-I, now in its fourth edition, is well-constructed, reliable, practical, research-based, and theoretically sound. Professionals can use the TOLD-I:4 to identify children ages 8-17.11 years who are significantly below their peers in oral language proficiency, determine their specific strengths and weaknesses in oral language skills, document their progress in remedial programs, and measure oral language in research studies.
The TOLD-I:4 comprises six subtests that measure semantics (i.e., meaning and thought) or grammar (i.e., syntax and morphology) skills. Two subtests measure listening abilities, two measure organizing abilities, and two measure speaking abilities. The combination of all six subtests represents overall Spoken Language.
This quick, efficient tool converts TOLD-I:4 subtest raw scores into age- and grade-based standard scores, percentile ranks, and age equivalents; generates composite quotients; compares test scores to identify significant intra-individual differences (including up to five non-TOLD-I:4 scores); and provides a printed analytical report of the student's TOLD-I:4 performance. The software has a word processing interface with complete word processing functionality and provisions for storing examiner and testing information. It provides reports in RTF format for exporting to a wide variety of word processing programs and printing for both stand-alone and networked computers.
