Structured Photographic Expressive Language Test–Third Edition (SPELT-3) targets the assessment of morphology and syntax (morphosyntax) skills in children from ages 4-0 through 9-11. This third edition is a revision of an accepted tool for measurement of children’s morphosyntactic development.
The SPELT-3 measures a child’s generation of specific morphologic and syntactic structures. It elicits responses from a child through structured visual and auditory stimuli.
Each test item includes a visual stimulus that is a full color photograph of an everyday situation or activity. Individual test items assess the child’s use of MORPHOLOGY (preposition, plural, possessive noun and pronoun, reflexive pronoun, subject pronoun, direct/indirect object, present possessive noun and pronoun, reflexive pronoun, subject pronoun, direct/indirect object, present progressive aspect, regular and irregular past tense, modal auxiliaries, contractible/uncontractible copula, and contractible/uncontractible auxiliary) and SYNTACTIC structures (negative, conjoined sentences, wh question, interrogative reversal, negative infinitive phrase, propositional complement, relative clause, and front/center embedded clause).
