This set of paragraphs is intended for use in evaluating comprehension of spoken paragraphs. Three age ranges are included (5-7, 8-10, and 11+) along with questions to use for each age group. At the bottom of each section, a summary space is provided for the evaluator to include strengths, weaknesses and recommendations as well as severity of the deficit as per the evaluators clinical judgment. No numerical scores are included here as these are not standardized tools. They are meant for use with diverse populations in which the evaluator should use his/her knowledge of typical language acquisition and development as well as his/ her familiarity with the student’s community and background.
