  • Qualification Level

Description
The TAWF-2 is a single-word expressive language test expressly designed to assess the word-finding ability of adolescents and adults. It can be used to identify individuals who have word-finding problems, plan word-finding intervention, and measure word-finding ability in research studies. The TAWF-2 has four naming sections:

  • Picture Naming: Nouns efficiency in naming compound and 1- to 4- syllable target words
  • Sentence Completion Naming efficiency in naming words to complete sentences read aloud by the examiner
  • Picture Naming: Verbs efficiency in naming present- and past-tense regular and irregular verbs
  • Picture Naming: Word Groups efficiency in naming nouns in semantic and phonemic word groups

Administration and Scoring
Administration of the TAWF-2 80-item Complete Test takes about 30 minutes. There is also a 28-item Brief Test for use with examinees or in situations where the Complete Test is not feasible. Raw scores are reported as a Word Finding Index standard score. Five informal analyses are also provided to examine types of word finding errors and contribute to interpreting the Word Finding Index.

Reliability and Validity

  • Cronbachs Alpha value for the Complete Test was 0.88.
  • Test-retest correlation for the Complete Tests was 0.95.
  • A cutoff score of 90 resulted in a sensitivity of 0.93, specificity of 0.82, and a ROC/AUC of 0.94
