Use the Test of Semantic Skills-Intermediate (TOSS-I) to assess receptive and expressive semantic skills in upper elementary and junior high students. The TOSS-I surveys ten semantic and vocabulary tasks using nineteen realistic illustrations and test questions that represent themes common to everyday life. Test items emphasize vocabulary that is meaningful to the experiences of late elementary and middle school students.
The TOSS-I has 10 subtests:
  • Identifying Labels
  • Identifying Categories
  • Identifying Attributes
  • Identifying Functions
  • Identifying Definitions
  • Stating Labels
  • Stating Categories
  • Stating Attributes
  • Stating Functions
  • Stating Definitions
Valid and Reliable
The TOSS-I was standardized on 2,192 subjects; demographics of test subjects closely mirror US Census data. This measure is considered to be reliable, as the average reliability coefficient for the total test is .93. Concerning validity, the TOSS-I significantly discriminates between subjects with typical language development and subjects with language disorders. Additionally, there is no evidence to suggest differences in performance by race/socioeconomic status at the item level.
For ages 4;0-8;11 please refer to the Test of Semantic Skills-Primary.
