Summary

    About This Product

    The TAPS-4 assesses skills across three intersecting areas: phonological processing, auditory memory and listening comprehension. These areas underpin the development of effective listening and communication skills, and are critical to the development of higher order language skills, including literacy skills.

     

    This revised version features new subtests along with revisions to subtests from the TAPS-3, fully updated norms, and an expanded age range. The TAPS-4 subtests were also reorganized into Index and Supplemental subtests, reducing testing burden and increasing flexibility in administration.

     

    The TAPS-4 also features audio administration for the subtests in which proper pronunciation of speech sounds is critical, providing a greater degree of standardization and accuracy during the testing process.

     

    The TAPS-4 has 11 subtests, organized into three indices:

    Phonological Processing Index:

    • Word (Pair) Discrimination
    • Phonological Deletion
    • Phonological Blending
    • Syllabic Blending (Supplemental)

     

    Auditory Memory Index:

    • Number Memory Forward
    • Word Memory
    • Sentence Memory
    • Number Memory Reversed (Supplemental)

     

    Listening Comprehension Index:

    • Processing Oral Directions (without background noise)
    • Auditory Comprehension
    • Auditory Figure–Ground—Processing Oral Directions with background noise (Supplemental)
