ASL Assessment Toolkits

ASL Assessment Toolkits

Since its inception, VL2 has had an ongoing effort to develop and validate measures of ASL skill, especially those that are suitable for tracking and monitoring the development of ASL skill among young children. We have also been working to adapt and modify a broad array of neuro-cognitive measures with ASL translations and methods suitable for both children and adults. Here, we provide links to information about the measures that VL2 has supported. Ultimately our goal is to build a "one-stop shop" ASL assessment portal that will provide access to the to the tools themselves and an online means for test administration.
