CELF 5 Metalinguistics overview

A revision of the Test of Language Competence-Expanded, the CELF-5 Metalinguistics assessment includes four tests of higher-level language skills that are embedded in school curricula and are critical to classroom success. Use it to measure a student’s ability to think about and use language to make inferences, manipulate conversational speech given a context, use words in multiple ways, and use language in a non-literal manner. This is a US assessment, with Americanisms and US norms.

Content and Administration

Administer the four tests individually or as a battery to obtain information about an individual’s language skills in:

  • Making Inferences
  • Conversation Skills
  • Multiple Meanings
  • Figurative Language

Features and Benefits

  • Ideal for students with subtle language disorders or those on the autistic spectrum
  • Goes beyond assessment of syntax and semantics to assess student’s language strategies and language flexibility
  • Includes several tests that assess the student’s ability to interpret contextual and situational demands of conversation
  • Helps you evaluate delays in semantic, syntactic and pragmatic competence
