The Test of Integrated Language & Literacy Skills™ (TILLS™) is a reliable, valid assessment used to test oral and written language skills in students ages 6—18 years. TILLS is a comprehensive, norm-referenced test that has been standardised for three purposes:

  • To identify language/literacy disorders
  • To document patterns of relative strengths and weaknesses
  • To track changes in language and literacy skills over time

TILLS is composed of 15 subtests that allow examiners to assess and compare students’ language-literacy skills at both the sound/word level and the sentence/discourse level across the four oral and written modalities—listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The resulting scores and the clear, at-a-glance TILLS Profile help you identify and track a student’s strengths and weaknesses—information you’ll use as you develop custom-tailored interventions.

Professionals can administer the entire test, single subtests, or combinations of subtests in one or more sessions. Comprehensive assessment can typically be administered in 90 minutes or less. Free online scoring via TILLS Easy-Score™ saves you time by automating steps to complete the Examiner Record Form’s Scoring Chart and Identification Chart. Find out more here.


After a timely 2020 study supported the validity of administering TILLS virtually, the TILLS developers have made supplemental Tele-TILLS materials available to guide users who are supporting students in online settings.

The Tele-TILLS components are:

  • Digital Tele-TILLS Stimulus Book. This audio-enhanced stimulus book contains the stimuli needed to administer the TILLS subtests virtually.
  • Tele-TILLS instructions. A PDF of clear guidelines for administering TILLS using distance technology, including technical details, materials needed, step-by-step examiner instructions, and tips on scoring and interpreting results.
  • Facilitator instructions. A handy, one-page quick guide for parents and other adult facilitators who are assisting with technology setup and troubleshooting during virtual administration of TILLS.
