This picture vocabulary size (PVS) test will provide teachers (and students) with an idea of their vocabulary size. Both online - assign with a link for students to complete online or pptx version.

The picture vocabulary test is based on the most frequent 6000 word families of English. Student results / 100 should be X 62.5 to determine the total estimated English vocabulary size of the student.

The test can be used as a measure of total receptive spoken vocabulary size for young native-speakers below the age of 10 and all ESL, EFL non-native speakers.

Test validity is based on the work of Paul Nation and his research to extrapolate vocabulary size based on a sample set of questions.

100 questions. Students choose the correct picture / answer. It will take students approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Also good for learning. Students will see the answers as they proceed through the test. Then use the full pptx version of the test to review the vocabulary/words. Can also be used to many other purposes - as a story prompt, making sentences with the 400 words etc ...
