The TELD-4 is a highly reliable and valid measure of spoken language in children ages 3 years 0 months through 7 years 11 months. Like the previous edition, the test yields Receptive Language and Expressive Language subtest index scores, as well as a Spoken Language index score.

All users now have access to the new optional PC-, Mac-, Chromebook-, and tablet-compatible TELD-4 Online Scoring and Report System via activation codes included in each package of TELD-4 Examiner Record Booklets. This system is a quick, efficient tool for (a) entering test session data; (b) converting subtest item scores or total raw scores into scaled scores; (c) generating composite index scores, percentile ranks, and upper and lower confidence intervals; (d) comparing TELD-4 scores to identify significant intraindividual differences; and (e) obtaining a score summary or narrative report. Use of the software ensures accurate application of basals and ceilings and calculation of scores.

TELD-4’s Pychometric Qualities

Demographics: The TELD-4 standardization included a representative sample of 1,074 children representing 32 states and 292 different zip codes.

Reliability: Extensive studies of test reliability (coefficient alpha, test-retest, immediate and delayed alternate forms, and interscorer) support the use of the TELD-4 with individual students. Average coefficient alphas for the full normative sample range from .95 to .97 for subtests and the composite.

Validity: Content-description validity was established through careful selection of items, controlled vocabulary, construct review by a panel of language experts, conventional item analysis, as well as analysis of the test floors, ceilings, item gradients, and differential item functioning. Criterion-prediction validity was established by (a) correlating TELD-4 standard scores with commercially available measures of reading ability (i.e., PLS-5, TACL-4, and TEXL), (b) comparing means and standard deviations between the TELD-4 and criterion tests, and (c) computing sensitivity, specificity, and ROC/AUC statistics. Construct-identification validity was established by studying (a) the relationship of the TELD-4 standardized scores with age, academic achievement, and intelligence; (b) the ability of the test’s standard scores to differentiate groups with known language problems from those without such problems; and (c) the factorial fit of the subtests to the construct in the test model (i.e., spoken language).

Limiting bias: Examination of the TELD-4 included using differential item functioning techniques. Further, a wide range of both mainstream and minority populations, as well as gender, racial, ethnic, linguistic, and disability categories, were included in the normative sample. Finally, reliability and validity information is provided for different mainstream and minority subgroups.

COMPLETE TELD-4 KIT INCLUDES: Examiner’s Manual, Picture Book, 25 Examiner Record Booklets Form A, and 25 Examiner Record Booklets Form B. Boxed. (2018)

Customer Reviews
  1. TELD 3 Review
    The TELD 3 is easy to administer, score, and come up with percentile ranks. It is quite quick to administer and I really like the fact that the expressive language portion requires more spontaneous speech than most other overall language tests. The pictures in the test manual are some what dated but that is the only downside to this test!

    I found the TELD-3 to be a comprehensive and easy to use test. It provided both receptive and expressive language information that is easy to translate to functional goal writing.

    I love the new hear builder following directions and phonological awareness CD. The areas align with state standards. The graphics are wonderful and my students loved the demo. My students love chipper chat series and Auditory Memory for Quick Stories. We order most test products through Super Duper as well.

    I enjoy your products and love your language games/activities. I would like more interactive products and language stimulating toys for early childhood. I work with many pre-kindergarten students and would benefit from a larger variety of products for children at this age. I love the fluency enhancing tools and the Magne Talk activities.
