Supplemental Product Resources

The VAS offers an alternative measure of overall intellectual ability for students who may have difficulty with traditional IQ tests. It is a picture vocabulary test that uses modern, engaging stimuli to measure expressive and receptive language throughout the age range.

Features and benefits

  • The only picture vocabulary test that uses full-color digital photographs instead of outdated line drawings.
  • The only picture vocabulary test that provides both an expressive/receptive score and a composite score.
  • The only picture vocabulary test that provides reliable change scores.
  • Requires no reading or writing and minimal motor skills.
  • Features less complicated basal and ceiling rules than similar measures, so it's easier to administer and score.

Test structure

  • The VAS-E presents a single picture along with a verbal prompt (e.g., “What is this?”). Examinees are required to verbally provide a single-word response.
  • The VAS-R presents a set of four picture stimuli and asks examinees to select the picture that best corresponds to the word spoken by the examiner.
  • Digital stimulus books are available for download to your desktop, laptop, or tablet. A link to download the stimulus books will be e-mailed to you. Digital stimulus books require a display screen size of 7.75" (19.7 cm) x 5.25" (13.3 cm) and 50 MB hard drive space for each stimulus book.

Technical information

  • Large normative sample (N = 2,678) from 30 states is based on the 2009 U.S. Census.
  • Normative data is provided for 28 different age groups and for Grades K-12 (spring and fall).
  • Validity was measured in 13 groups (N = 544).
