Grades Pre K - 6 Elicitation Kit (Monolingual English)


This kit contains everything you need to elicit samples for comparison with the Play, Narrative Story Retell, Student Selects Story, Conversation, TNL/TNL2, and Expository reference databases. Samples elicited using the same protocol may be compared to age or grade-matched peers selected from the appropriate database. Comprehension questions, modeled on Bloom's Taxonomy, are included for each of the four narrative stories in the Narrative Story Retell database.

Why are there two copies of most of the books?

The first book, Frog, Where Are You?, is a wordless picture book used both for providing the model and prompting for the student's narrative retell. The other three books contain words. One copy is used to read the story to the student. The other copy, which comes with all the words neatly covered, is used to prompt for the student's retell.
