Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing | Second Edition

For educational, clinical, and research teams who need broad and deep information about the phonological skills required for reading fluency, the CTOPP-2 provides reliable scores for phonological awareness (including phoneme isolation), phonological memory, and rapid symbolic and non-symbolic naming for students ages 4 through 24:11. CTOPP-2 is the most current version of CTOPP.

Product Details

CTOPP-2 is a measure of phonological awarenes, phonological memory, and naming. The assessment features all new normative data and a new phonological awareness subtest: Phoneme Isolation.


  • Identify individuals whose phonological abilities are significantly below their peers.
  • Determine strengths and weaknesses in phonological processing skills.
  • Document progress in phonological processing following intervention.
  • Collect data for phonological processing research.


CTOPP-2 includes twelve subtests plus supplemental tests to assess specific phonological strengths and weaknesses are included. Applicable across two age levels, 4-6 and 7-24, the CTOPP-2 has five composites:

  • Phonological Awareness Component Scores (PACS) represents awareness of and access to the phonological structure of oral language.
  • Phonological Memory Component Scores (PMCS) helps to measure the ability to code information phonologically for temporary storage in working or short-term memory.
  • The Rapid Symbolic Naming Composite Score (RSNCS) measures the ability to include efficient retrieval of phonological information from long-term or permanent memory and execute a sequence of operations quickly and repeatedly.
  • Rapid Non-Symbolic Naming Composite Score (RNNCS) measures the ability to include efficient retrieval of phonological information from long-term or permanent memory and execute a sequence of operations quickly and repeatedly using objects and colors.
  • The Alternate Phonological Awareness Composite Score (APACS), an alternate composite for measuring phonological awareness, is available for 7 through 24 year olds. The APACS measures phonological awareness exclusively with nonwords, memory, as well as the ability to execute a sequence of operations quickly and repeatedly.
