British Picture Vocabulary Scale 3 (BPVS 3)
Author 1: Dunn
This assessment plays an important role in assessing a child’s receptive (hearing) vocabulary. It helps you identify any delay in vocabulary development, even before children are in full-time education.
BPVS3 is a one-to-one test in a simple and easy to administer format. For each question, you say a word and the pupil responds by selecting a picture from four options that best illustrates that word’s meaning.
As no reading or spoken response is required, BPVS3 can be used to assess language development in non-readers, pupils with expressive language impairments, pupils with autism and other related communication difficulties, as well as those with English as an Additional Language (EAL). To help pupils who may be colour vision deficient, the large-format illustrations have black outlines and vivid colours.
