  • Obtain scaled scores immediately after finishing a subtest, to increase scoring speed and accuracy.
  • Automatically generate score reports that include item analyses.


Test Content

Did you change the pictures of the telephone and get rid of the calculator and newspaper?

Yes, all of those are deleted from the new test.

The standardisation version looks a lot like the CELF Preschool-2. What is new?

  • Updated test items (no more calculator, stamps, or newspaper) and new normative data
  • New digital test administration options (via Q-global and Q-interactive) for face-to-face administration and telepractice.
  • New supplemental subtests (Connected Speech and Pragmatics Activities Checklist)
  • New index scores: Academic Language index and Emerging Literacy index
  • New screening test and digital scoring (sold separately)

CELF Preschool-2 did not provide much of an opportunity to obtain information about spontaneous speech? Is CELF Preschool-3A&NZ the same?

The new test includes a Connected Speech subtest using a story retell format. Use the No Juice! book to tell the child the story, then ask him or her to retell the story. Compare the morphosyntactic forms used in the Connected Speech sample to those on the Word Structure subtests.

Will the CELF Preschool-3A&NZ Screening Test also be available as a digital assessment?

It will be available on Q-global, on Q-interactive and as a COVIU add-on.

What if I am a Q-interactive user with a Standard or Speech licence?

CELF Preschool-3 will automatically appear on Standard and Speech licences after publication. Scoring and reporting options will also appear in your Q-global account.

Use Cases

Do I have to administer a CELF Preschool-3A&NZ Screening before I use the CELF Preschool-3A&NZ?

That is up to you, and depends on the requirements or limitations at your work setting. If you conduct mass screenings, one advantage to using the CELF Preschool-3A&NZ Screening Test if you plan to follow up with the child by administering CELF Preschool-3A&NZ is that you can take the examinee's responses from the Screening and write them (or just the scores) on the CELF Preschool-3A&NZ record form and skip those questions during the test administration (so the child does not have to take the items twice). But you can certainly choose to use any screening tool before administering the CELF Preschool-3A&NZ.

What if I used a PLS-5 Screening Test to screen? Can I follow up with CELF Preschool-3A&NZ?

You can certainly follow up with any diagnostic assessment after using a PLS-5 Screening protocol. However, if you use an assessment other than CELF Preschool-3A&NZ, you would not be able to transfer responses from the screening test.
