CELF®–5 Metalinguistics (Wiig & Secord, in development) is a revision and update of the Test of Language Competence—Expanded Edition (TLC–E) (Wiig & Secord, 1989). CELF–5 Metalinguistics is designed to evaluate delays in the emergence of metalinguistic awareness and knowledge in late-elementary, secondary, and college-level students ages 9–21 years old. The test will cover metalinguistic skills such as the ability to make and understand inferences; using and understanding multiple meanings words, figurative language; and using conscious processes in formulating spoken or written sentences to meet cultural expectations for conveying messages or expressing emotions or opinions. A standardization version of the CELF–5 Metalinguistics test will be field tested beginning in May. If you are interested in participating in the field test, complete an application. If you have any additional questions about the standardization, please contact email@example.com.
