Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test

The PPVT is a measure of receptive vocabulary size where children are given an array of four pictures and must point to the one that matches the word spoken by the test administrator. The test must be administered and scored according to the published instructions.

Administering the PPVT takes approximately 15 minutes. An additional 5 minutes is required for scoring and calculating scores.
