Pedersen, Elray L.
The three tests that make up this instrument are designed to assess the oral communication, grammatical fluency, and vocabulary development of students for whom English is a second language. The spoken English test comes in two versions: one with 90 items on a cassette tape, the other with 90 items to be read aloud by the examiner. Each version is available in three forms that employ a multiple-choice format requiring the selection of the semantically and grammatically correct response. Two levels of the grammar test have been developed; Form O is for the primary grades, the Forms A, B, and C are for secondary and higher education students. The forms of the vocabulary test are targeted in the same way as the grammar exam.

The TRIP review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (language), title, author, date, age range (primary through adult), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
