||The Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, 5th Edition (PPVT-5), is an individually administered, norm referenced instrument that assesses receptive vocabulary of children and adults ages 2 years, 6 months and older. This edition of the PPVT measures receptive vocabulary knowledge of various parts of speech (i.e., nouns, verbs, and attributes). The PPVT-5 is co-normed with the EVT-3 and administration of the two tests provides a broad view of an individual’s vocabulary knowledge. It is available in two parallel forms, designated as Form A and Form B that facilitate its use for progress monitoring. The sets are arranged in order of increasing difficulty. Each PPVT item consists of two parts: the stimulus word, and the array of four pictures. One picture depicts the stimulus word, and the other three are distractors.
