Skip Navigation LinksVictorian Deaf Education Institute > Professional Learning > Introduction to TEWL - 3, TOWL -4 and OWLS-11

The TEWL-3 and TOWL-4 are comprehensive diagnostic tests of written expression the results providing insight into a child’s understanding about language and his/her ability to use the writing tools of language and their ability to construct a story when provided with a picture prompt. These tests are used to: identify students who have poor written language skills; determine students’ particular strengths and weaknesses in various writing abilities; and document students’ progress in intervention writing programs. 

The OWLS-II provides a detailed and integrated assessment of basic oral and written language skills.  Using the OWLS-II scales you can pinpoint: language delays; identify strengths and weaknesses; and guides intervention planning.

Therefore, it is imperative to administer and score the student’s results accurately as this will aid interpretation and enhance therapy planning.  Targeted therapy planning is integral to a student’s improved progress and learning achievements.​
