Spanish Picture Vocabulary Test. Prueba Ilustrada de vocabulario Espanol. An Adaptation of the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test. Manual [and] Plates. Research Project 1978.
Wiener, Florence D.; And Others
The Spanish Picture Vocabulary Test was designed to provide a Spanish-language translation of the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test which would be suitable for Spanish-speaking Puerto Rican school-children in New York City. The 300 stimulus words were translated according to a consensus of linguists and persons of Puerto Rican descent, and were reviewed for cultural, racial, and sex bias. After review, 150 of the 600 illustrations were revised to eliminate bias. Testing procedures were adapted directly from Dunn's Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test. Examiners were of Puerto Rican descent and were fluent in both English and Spanish; they administered the new test to 120 pilot subjects, aged 2 1/2 to 18, in New York City. Two test forms were then administered to 2,034 subjects in 96 schools. After data analyses, the two forms were combined, yielding a single 150-item test. Test reliability ranged from .71 to .94. The final test, although untimed, generally takes 15-30 minutes to complete. (The bulk of this document consists of the pictorial test items. Brief technical reports are presented in English and in Spanish, with scoring instructions; as well as lists of the 150 words, in English and in Spanish). (GDC)
