Basic Assessment Information
Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Fourth edition (ppvt-4)
The PPVT–4 scale measures understanding of words in spoken English and assesses knowledge of vocabulary
Age range- 2 years and 6 months through 90+ years
Administration time- not timed but takes an average of 10-15 minutes
Short scoring time- special software or by hand
2 parallel test forms A and B
20 content areas (subtests)
Composite names- none
Deviation-type normative scores: standard scores, percentiles, normal curve equivalents (NCEs), and stanines
Developmental-type normative scores: age equivalents, grade equivalents
Growth scale value (GSV) scores
Forms A and B of
Validity & Normative Information
-Construct and Convergent Validity
- Expressive Vocabulary Test Second Edition: correlations were .80 to .84 (very high)
-Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language & Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals Fourth Edition: correlations were from .37 to .79 (poor to good)
-Group Reading Assessment & Diagnostic Evaluation: the correlation was .63 (good)
-Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test III: correlation was .84 (very high)

PPVT-IV in Action!
The split-half reliabilities ranged from
.90 to .97
with an average of
(very, very good!)
Alternate form reliability data on Forms A and B were collected on a sample of 508 participants.
The results show alternative forms reliability ranging from
.87 to .93
with an average of
(still very good!)
Stability data was collected on a sample of 340 participants with an average of a 4-week span between testing.
Test-retest coefficients ranged from .
92 to .96
with an average of .

Sample Page of PPVT-IV
This is because....
1.) It’s easy and quick to administer and interpret
2.) Is relatively expensive in comparison to other tests
A complete version of the test that includes both Form A and Form B would cost about $400.
If a person wanted to purchase Form A or Form B separately it would cost about $220 respectively.
For a package of 25 protocols for either Form A or Form B it would cost about $42 respectively.
For a package of 100 protocols for either Form A or Form B it would cost about $147 respectively.)
Doesn't it make you want to
administer it right now?!
Ultimately, this test deserves to be one of the most popular tests that are administered in psycho-educational and speech and language assessment!
Overall Impression (Continued)
It also has a simple required examinee response (pointing)
It is technologically sophisticated in that it has a well-developed ASSIST Scoring and Reporting System for computerized scoring.
Given the high quality of the technical features, detailed examiner's manual, and flexibility of uses and interpretations, there's a reason that this assessment is used so widely.
The only negative aspect of this test is it narrow scope--because it only measures the receptive (hearing) vocabulary of the standard American English language.
