Description: The completely new Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Oral Language (WJ-IV-OL) contains a dedicated set of oral language and language-related measures that are a diagnostic supplement to the WJ-IV-COG and WJ-IV-ACH. The WJ IV OL tests also function as a stand-alone battery of tests that are useful for oral language assessment, determination of English (and Spanish) language proficiency, and for comparison of strengths and weaknesses among oral language and language related abilities for a more complete reading, writing, or dyslexia evaluation. For example, the new Segmentation test offers examiners a highly predictive three-part test for measuring critical reading-related skills involved in breaking works into parts and phonemes. This test complements the Sound Blending test that measures the counterpart skill of blending sounds into words. The WJ-IV-OL also includes distinct clusters for evaluation of Listening Comprehension and Oral Expression.

TESTS IN THE WJ-IV-OL:  Test 1: Picture Vocabulary; Test 2: Oral Comprehension; NEW Test 3: Segmentation; Test 4: Rapid Picture Naming; Test 5: Sentence Repetition; Test 6: Understanding Directions; Test 7: Sound Blending; Test 8: Retrieval Fluency; Test 9: Sound Awareness; Test 10: Vocabulario sobre dibujos; Test 11: Comprensión oral; Test 12: Comprensión de indicaciones

The Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJ-IV)is composed of three instruments:  Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Achievement – (WJ-IV-ACH); Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities (WJ-IV-COG); & Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Oral Language (WJ-IV-OL).
