Disease relevance of Language Tests

  • For the subjects with Down's syndrome, neither superior temporal gyrus nor planum temporale volume was significantly correlated with performance on language tests after total brain volume was controlled for [1].

Psychiatry related information on Language Tests

  • A comprehensive language test battery (Aachen Aphasia Test) was administered to 45 patients in the early, middle or later stages of Huntington's disease (HD) and to 20 control subjects [2].
  • This study was conducted to compare results of SCAN: A Screening Test for Auditory Processing Disorders with other central auditory and language tests [3].
  • Analysis indicated a significant influence of chronological age on the Test de Vocabulaire en Images Mental Age. This influence of chronological age probably explains why receptive vocabulary tests consistently overestimate the IQ of persons with mental retardation [4].
  • Following treatment with peptide, the subjects were given the Trails B Test (from the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Battery), the Peabody Picture Vocabulary test, the Benton Visual Retention Test, a concept-formation task, and a standard orienting sequence [5].

High impact information on Language Tests

  • Of the 14,238 children born in 1963 and living in Warsaw, 96 percent were given the Raven's Progressive Matrices Test and an arithmetic and a vocabulary test in March to June of 1974 [6].
  • A standardized neuropsychological assessment was conducted, including Kaufman ABC battery, language tests, and motor performance series [7].
  • Growth characteristics, performance on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R), the Boston Naming Test, the Rey-Osterrieth Test, the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals-Revised (CELF-R), and subtests from several other speech and language tests were compared across the groups [8].
  • Finally, correlation analyses showed that for FES participants both executive and language tests significantly correlated with ANWLG total responses, while the correlation between ANWLG and only 1 language test was significant for LTLE participants [9].
  • Global intelligence quotients (IQ) did not differ between the 2 groups, but the cocaine-exposed children achieved significantly lower scores on the Reynell language test [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Language Tests

  • Experience with a vocabulary test for workers previously and still exposed to styrene [11].
  • Children were given two standard theory of mind measures (Appearance-Reality and False Belief), three inhibitory control tasks (Bear/Dragon, Whisper, and Gift Delay), three planning tasks (Tower of Hanoi, Truck Loading, and Kitten Delivery), and a receptive vocabulary test (Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test [PPVT-3]) [12].

Gene context of Language Tests

  • In addition, many of the symptoms that are necessary for the diagnosis of ADHD are prerequisite skills required to perform well on standardized language tests [13].
  • A clinical study of the automated assessment of intelligence by the Mill Hill Vocabulary test and the Standard Progressive Matrices test [14].
  • The findings suggest that the PLS-3 is generally an informative language test for African American preschoolers; however, scores should be interpreted with caution [15].
  • For those children within the PLI group who function at ceiling on language tests, conversational measures may have the potential to signal change, but this finding has not been subjected to group study or to testing in generalized settings [16].
  • Our study shows that despite equivalent behaviour (i.e. vocabulary test age), the processes underlying how vocabulary is acquired in WS follow a somewhat different path from that of normal children and that the atypically developing brain is not necessarily a window on normal development [17].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Language Tests

  • Alzheimer's patients (DAT/pts) and 2 control groups (one matched for age and education and one for education but 20 years older) were given ten cognitive ability tasks suited to test language, memory and intelligence performances [18].
