What It Measures

For children and young adults ages 3 to 21, the CASL-2 measures spoken language across four structural categories:

Lexical/Semantic: Knowledge and use of words and word combinations
Syntactic: Knowledge and use of grammar
Supralinguistic: Knowledge and use of language in which meaning is not directly available from the surface lexical and syntactic information
Pragmatic Language: Knowledge of language that is appropriate across different situational contexts and ability to modify language according to the social situation

The CASL-2 has strong internal consistency and test-retest and interrater reliability, demonstrating the stability and reliability of results over time and across raters. Comparative studies with the CASL, OPUS, OWLS-II, and CELF-5 show that correlations are strong but different enough to support that the CASL-2 measures unique aspects of spoken language.
