Joseph Ryan and colleagues administered the PPVT-III to 140 inner-city primary school students twice over a seven month period. The PPVT-III is designed to measure receptive vocabulary and can be administer to ages 2 to 90+ (Ryan, Glass, Sullivan, Gibson, Bartels, 2009, p. 70). It yields a composite mean score of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. The test is most effective because it can be administered to those who cannot read, write, or use expressive language. The purpose of this study was to gain additional information on alternate forms reliability and stability of children from inner-city schools, especially those from a low socioeconomic status. To be eligible to participate in the study, students had to have signed consent from their parents. A total of 140 students, 71 boys and 69 girls were eligible to participate in the test-retest. Of those 140 students, 97 only spoke English, and 43 were fluent in both English and Spanish.
