The purpose of this study was to establish an adequate standardization sample for the Boston Naming Test. Three-hundred-fifty-seven subjects from kindergarten through sixth grade participated in this project. Means, standard deviations, and ranges of performance in accuracy and latency were established for age and grade. Based on our results, the Boston Naming Test appears to be an efficient and valid screening measure of students' word-finding skills at K through 6th grade levels.
