The British Picture Vocabulary Scale: Third Edition (BPVS 3), can play an important role in assessing a child’s receptive (hearing) vocabulary. It is a one-on-one test that assesses a child’s receptive vocabulary; for each question, the teacher says a word and the pupil responds by selecting a picture from four options that best illustrates the word’s meaning.

It’s simple, appealing format and ease of administration belies the significance of the assessment and how it can help identify any delay in vocabulary development, even before children are in full time education.
