Product Details

EVT-3 maintains the basic format and qualities of the EVT–2 (e.g., parallel forms, stimulus questions, easy administration and response capture, accurate scoring) with additional upgrades and digital applications.

  • Move immediately into evidence-based interventions using those presented within the Q-global system.


EVT-3 can be combined with PPVT-5, its co-normed companion test for receptive vocabulary, and The Bridge of Vocabulary 2.

  • Qualitative Analyses: five ways to help you make hypotheses about vocabulary performance.
