Fifty children were administered a screening test for communication disorders under two conditions. Under one condition graduate clinicians administered the test in the traditional pencil and paper format. Under the second condition nonprofessionals administered a computer-managed version of the same test. It was found that the computer-managed screening test yielded satisfactory agreement for the language sections. The results of the articulation section of the screening test were ambiguous.
