Transcript of CELF-4
Lauren Mazzella CELF-4 Overview What does "CELF-4" stand for? Four-level Assessment Process With CELF-4 you can: Now to tie it all together! CELF-4 provides a flexible,
multiperspective assessment process There are 19 total subtests: Record forms contain items, trial items, and space for recording responses. What is a core language score? Receptive Language Index: A measure of listening and auditory comprehension and is derived by summing the scaled scores from a combination of two or three receptive subtests "Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals"
(Fourth Edition) Individually administered test Determines if a student (ages 5-21) has a language disorder or delay Assesses four aspects of language: Morphology and syntax Semantics Pragmatics Phonological awareness Can be administered in 30-60 minutes How is it different from the Third Edition? Updated norms
Expanded language coverage
New four-level assessment process model Evaluate a student's general language ability See whether or not a
language disorder is present You can do so with four subtests in order to obtain a "core language score" The Four Levels Identify whether or not there is a language disorder Level 1: Describe the nature of the disorder Level 2: Strengths and weaknesses affected modalities content areas conditions that enable the student to perform well Evaluate underlying clinical behaviors Level 3: working memory automaticity of speech phonological awareness Evaluate language and communication in context Level 4: How the disorder affects the student's classroom performance Used for pinpointing a student's language
and communication strengths/weaknesses Helps one make educationally relevant
recommendations for intervention and accommodations The subtests can be administered in different ways! Each of the four levels sequentially Select one or more levels to use in any order depending on your evaluation/assessment objectives This model enables you to administer only the subtests and tasks that respond directly to your objectives for assessment and evaluation Sentence Assembly

Understanding Spoken Paragraphs Semantic Relationships Scoring This test provides a comprehensive look at a student's language ability Different combinations of subtests form: the Core Language Score and the receptive and expressive modalities language content and structure the application of working memory to linguistic content and structure The test results scoring information is recorded on pages 1&2 of each record form Record form 1 includes all subtests for clients 5-8 years old Record form 2 includes all subtests for clients 9-21 years old Subtests that do not require a stimulus book are color coded teal for ages 5-8 and purple for ages 9-21 A measure of general language ability and is used to make decisions about the presence or absence of a language disorder This score is found by summing the scaled scores from the subtests that best discriminate typical language performance from disordered language performance Expressive Language Index: Overall measure of expressive language skills Language Context Index: A measure of various aspects of: semantic development vocabulary concept and category development comprehension of associations and relationships among words interpretation of factual and inferential information presented orally the ability to create meaningful, semantically and syntactically correct sentences Language Structure Index: The overall measure of receptive and expressive components of interpreting and producing sentence structure. Used for ages 5-8 years. Language Memory Index: A measure of the ability to recall spoken directions, formulate sentences with given words, and identify semantic relationships. Used for ages 9-21 years. Working Memory Index: A measure of attention, concentration, and recall Summary CELF-4 provides a four-level approach to evaluate a student's language ability It allows you to determine a student's strengths and weaknesses, and a connection to school curriculum and every day classroom language behavior It offers a variety of methods in order to obtain information to make the most appropriate clinical decisions The End!
