Public school clinicians in California were surveyed regarding methods for assessing the language of children between 4 and 9 years old. Information was obtained about the use of informal and formal language assessment methods and factors that influence assessment methods. The findings indicated that a majority of clinicians use published test instruments in combination with other formal and informal methods. New methods are incorporated based upon information gained from workshops, conferences, fellow clinicians, and research. Frequency of use scores and rankings are reported for published language assessment instruments mentioned by at least 10% of respondents.
