I created these rubrics to analyze data gathered at different points during an intervention of expressive language. To gather the data, I select 3-5 items and ask students to define each. Then I use the rubric to score their responses and look for an increase in attributes used, linguistic complexity and level of expressive skills over time.
*The Expanding Expression Tool (EET) was created by Sara L. Smith, CCC-SLP.
Please Note: Although these rubrics were designed to be able to be used as a stand alone product, I typically use them in conjunction with my implementation of the EET. I highly recommend the EET as a resource. I have been using it, as well as several of the other EET products, for individual therapy and for push-in, whole classroom instruction.
