Session 10: The British Picture Vocabulary Scale (BPVS)

BPVS3 is a one-to-one test in a simple and easy to administer format. For each question, you say a word and the pupil responds by selecting a picture from four options that best illustrates that word’s meaning. Responses can be given by pointing or gesturing, making the assessment suitable for non-readers and children with specific learning difficulties.

This session will explore:

  • The pre-assessment preparations and administration of BVPS.
  • Guidance for analysing and interpreting assessment data for the purpose of identifying next steps to ensure meaningful impact.
