Bankson Expressive Language Test - 3 (BELT-3)

Authors: Nicholas W. Bankson / Michelle Mentis / Jennifer R. Jagielko

  • Expressive Language
  • Ages 3 through 6
  • Testing Time: 30 minutes
  • Individual Administration
  • Qualification Level A

Description
The BELT-3 is an individually administered assessment of young childrens expressive language skills. It has two subtests that cover a variety of linguistic areas:

  • Lexical Semantics nouns, verbs, categories, functions, and prepositions
  • Morphology and Syntax verb usage/tense, auxiliaries, modals, copula, comparatives/superlatives, negation, and questions

The BELT-3 can be used to identify young children who have expressive language impairments, plan interventions, and represent expressive language ability in research studies.

The BELT-3 was normed on a nationally representative sample of 684 children.

Administration and Scoring
Administration of the BELT-3 takes about 35-40 minutes. Administration time has been reduced by the addition of ceiling rules in many of the test sections. Raw scores are converted to scaled scores for the subtests and to a standard score for the total Expressive Language Index.

Reliability and Validity

  • Cronbachs Alpha values ranged from 0.83 to 0.92 for the subtests and was 0.93 for the Expressive Language Index.
  • Test-retest correlations ranged from 0.88 to 0.91 for the subtests and Expressive Language Index
  • An Expressive Language Index cutoff score of 90 resulted in a sensitivity of 0.71, a specificity of 0.73, and a ROC/AUC of 0.83.
