Language sampling is the "heart" of the language assessment process and is required in the State of California to determine eligibility, for language remediation services; however, it is time-consuming to obtain a sample, score it, and analyze it. In order to streamline the process, a modified format of the Multilevel Informal Language Inventory (MILI) was administered to 4-, 5-, and 6-year-old public school children. Scores obtained were used to compute normative data. Using this protocol, total administration, scoring and analysis time was reduced to approximately 35 minutes.
