The Living Word Vocabulary, the Words We Know: A National Vocabulary Inventory.
Dale, Edgar; O'Rourke, Joseph
This word list includes more than 43,000 items, each identified by a simple word meaning. For each item, the list provides a grade level (4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, or 16) and a percentage score that indicates what percentage of students at that grade level understand the word. Each word-familiarity score was obtained by administering a three-choice test to students from schools and colleges throughout the United States. An appendix discusses the three-choice test as a validating instrument. (GW)
