Product Description
What could you do with a measure of kindergarten oral language levels?
You might:
• Modify curriculum presentation to build measured language levels.
• Determine which children you might refer for additional speech and language screening.
• Track the relation between classroom learning and language levels
• Measure the impact of classroom experiences on language growth
• Use the color-coded pie charts to support requests for additional resources.

For 25 years, I have found that this 22-item test of kindergarten language yields consistently useful results. I spent some of my career as a district consultant on language and learning, some as a speech-language pathologist, and some as a University clinic director and faculty member. Now that I’m (semi) retired, it’s time to share this with anyone who might need to know language levels of students:
• Title I teachers and administrators
• ELL teachers and administrators (yes, there is a version in Spanish)
• Individuals conducting research on language and literacy
• Speech language pathologists wishing to use this as a language screen.

Due to size limitations on FREE documents, I decided to sell the booklet for $4.99. The alternative was to cut the booklet into 4 parts to be downloaded individually.

There are also FREE support files:
• An Administration and Scoring file provides step-by-step instructions for giving the TOLL-K and scoring it.
• An Excel file creates pie charts from testing results.
• An Introduction file provides some background information.
• An Indicators and References file offers observations for each Language Level.

The test is based on the language levels described in my book, Preparing for Success: Meeting the language and learning needs of young children from poverty homes.

I hope that you find it useful!
