1202: Elicitation - Elicitation Protocol

Overview
One of the most powerful analysis tools built into SALT is the ability to compare an individual language sample to age or grade-matched peers selected from the reference databases. In order for the comparison to be valid, however, the language samples should be elicited following the same protocol as was used to collect the database samples. In this course, you will learn about the SALT reference databases and how to collect comparable samples.
