A Review of the Receptive, Expressive & Social Communication Assessment—Elementary

The Receptive, Expressive & Social Communication Assessment–Elementary (RESCA-E) is a new and innovative measure of oral language abilities. When its publisher, ATP Assessments, asked me to classify the subtests of the RESCA-E according to their likely loadings on CHC Theory abilities, I billed them for the time it took me to do so. However, I was so impressed with the instrument, I thought that it merited a short review and some statistical investigations of its structure. The review was born of pure enthusiasm–I did not not bill APT Assessments for the many additional hours I spent performing statistical analyses, creating plots, and writing up the results. The review contains several features that cannot be displayed on this blogging platform (e.g., interactive 3D plots), but it can be seen in its entirety here.
