How do we administer a vocabulary test?
The vocabulary tests were normed under the following standardized testing conditions:
Students take the measures on the computer, with no outside assistance (no read-aloud accommodations).
If a student's IEP states that the student should be provided with a read-aloud accommodation for assessments and work, then the test administrator should provide this accommodation for the easyCBM vocabulary assessments. If a student does not have an IEP, or the IEP does not recommend a read-aloud accommodation, then the vocabulary items should not be read aloud to the student, as doing so might alter the construct being assessed (ability to make sense of words when they are used in context).
