Test of Integrated Language and Literacy Skills (TILLS) is a reliable, valid assessment of oral and written language skills in students ages 6–18 years. This streamlined assessment can typically be administered in 90 minutes or less and used to support decisions on appropriate next steps. TILLS is a comprehensive, norm-referenced test that has been standardized for three purposes:
  • To identify language and literacy disorders
  • To document patterns of relative strengths and weaknesses
  • To track changes in language and literacy skills over time

TILLS is ideal for evaluating students suspected of having primary language impairment, suspected of having a learning or reading disability, those known to have an existing condition associated with difficulties in spoken and written language, and students struggling with language and literacy comprehension or social communication skills.

The Examiner’s Practice Workbook provides helpful instructions and scoring practice for the TILLS. Completing the exercises in this workbook will help you:
  • Practice establishing basals and ceilings
  • Understand when probes can be used
  • See when item answers can reveal a student’s strengths as well as weaknesses
  • Know how to handle a student’s self-corrections
  • Make modifications for students with special needs
  • Know what to do if a student expresses frustration or declines to do a task
  • Check your understanding of counting words, T-units, and word errors in the Written Expression subtest
  • Learn when it can be useful to compare a student’s responses on one subtest to results on other subtests
