The Development of a Measure to Evaluate Language Communication Skills of Young Children.
Rose, Suzanna; And Others
The purpose of this study was to develop an evaluation instrument to assess young children's language communication skills. Two parallel sets of Language Communication Skills Tasks (LCST) were developed. Each task was developed to measure the effectiveness of the child's communication skills as both a speaker and listener. The subjects were 112 children from an inner-city public elementary school. Two sets of measures were derived. The first set dealt with communication measures and the second with the linguistic components. Detailed discussion of findings, procedures, and plans to revise and validate the LCST are presented in the paper. (Author)
