FAQs

Test Content

Did you change the pictures of the telephone and get rid of the calculator and newspaper?​

Yes, all of those are deleted from the new test.​

The standardization version looks a lot like the CELF Preschool-2. What is new?​

  • Updated test items (no more calculator, stamps, or newspaper) and new normative data​
  • New digital test administration options (via Q-g and Q-i) for face-to-face administration and telepractice.​
  • New supplemental subtests (Connected Speech and Pragmatics Activities Checklist)​
  • New index scores: Academic Language index and Emerging Literacy index
  • New screening test and digital scoring (sold separately)​

CELF Preschool-2 did not provide much of an opportunity to obtain information about spontaneous speech? Is CELF Preschool-3 the same?​

The new test includes a Connected Speech subtest using a story retell format. Use the No Juice! book to tell the child the story, then ask him or her to retell the story. Compare the morphosyntactic forms used in the Connected Speech sample to those on the Word Structure subtests.​

What are the two digital options offered for CELF Preschool-3?
What am I buying?

Q-global

Q-interactive

A digital kit, which includes

  • A digital Manual, a digital Stimulus Book and paper Record Forms (25). All the digital materials are housed on the Q-global platform in the Resource Library
  • Download and print the Administration Directions.
  • Display stimulus pictures on a web-enabled tablet or computer.
  • Write responses on a record form.
  • Purchase scoring separately or hand-score the examinee's responses
  • There is no license fee

A yearly license fee per user provides access to all the speech and language tests on the platform. These include: CELF-5, PPVT-5, EVT-3, GFTA-3, GFTA-3 Spanish, KLPA-3, CELF Preschool-3 (when published.)

  • The tests run on two iPads connected by Bluetooth (one iPad for the examiner; one for the examinee)
  • The examiner iPad provides the test stimuli you say to the examinee and correct responses; the examinee sees the test stimuli on his or her iPad. At the end of a subtest, the test scores are provided automatically as well as a score report.​
  • Pay $1.50 per subtest in a test battery; $4.50 for single subtest tests and GFTA-3. Administration, scoring, and reporting are seamless and integrated-you can obtain test scores and a score report at the completion of testing.​
What equipment do I need?

Q-global

Q-interactive

  • Face-to- face test administration: Any web-enabled tablet or computer​
  • Telepractice (remote administration): computer with teleconferencing application (secure transmission with encryption, i.e, AdobeConnect) ​
  • Face-to-face test administration: Two iPads*​
  • Telepractice (remote administration):
    • two iPads with a mirroring app
    • a computer with a secure teleconferencing application
Do I need internet access?​

Q-global

Q-interactive

YesYes, to set up the assessment protocol you want to use. Once the test is uploaded to your iPads, you do not need internet access to administer tests​.
Using either platform…

You control the testing pace and presentation of test stimuli. ​

 

Will the CELF Preschool-3 Screening Test also be available as a digital assessment?​

It will be available on Q-global, but not on Q-interactive.

What if I am a Q-interactive user with a Standard or Speech license?​

CELF Preschool-3 will automatically appear on Standard and Speech licenses after publication. Scoring and reporting options will also appear in your Q-global account.

Use Cases

Do I have to administer a CELF Preschool-3 Screening before I use the CELF Preschool-3?​

That is up to you, and depends on the requirements or limitations at your work setting. If you conduct mass screenings, one advantage to using the CELF Preschool-3 Screening Test if you plan to follow up with the child by administering CELF Preschool-3 is that you can take the examinee's responses from the Screening and write them (or just the scores) on the CELF Preschool-3 protocol and skip those questions during the test administration (so the child does not have to take the items twice). But you can certainly choose to use any screening tool before administering the CELF Preschool-3. ​

What if I used a PLS-5 Screening Test to screen? Can I follow up with CELF Preschool-3?​

You can certainly follow up with any diagnostic assessment after using a PLS-5 Screening protocol. However, if you use an assessment other than CELF Preschool-3, you would not be able to transfer responses from the screening test.
