Skip Navigation LinksVictorian Deaf Education Institute > Professional Learning > Introduction to the Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language (CASL) 26 March 4-7pm

This professional development program is designed for teachers of the deaf who have no experience with the administration of scoring of the Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language (CASL).  The CASL is an individual orally administered research based, theory driven oral language assessment battery for ages 3-21.  The fifteen tests in the battery measure language processing skills - comprehension, expression and retrieval - in four different language structure categories: Lexical/Semantic, Syntactic, Supralinguistic and Pragmatic. This practical workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to administer and score the battery of tests.  

Learning Outcomes

At the completion of the CASL workshop participants will be able to: 

  1. Administer and score the CASL 
  2. Understand the main elements of the test 
  3. Develop an awareness of the type of information which can be gained by administering the test.
