Baseball Baseline Data! Score! Kids earn baseballs for their players while speech-language pathologists collect data. You decide how many baseballs they earn to make a run (e.g. 10-20).
This product is one of my original criterion referenced tests that include baseball themed data collection forms for speech-language pathologists to record students’ accuracy of naming Tier I (basic level) and Tier III (curriculum) word associations. You can choose the list that is most appropriate to the skill that you are addressing in speech-language therapy or small group instruction.
This interactive resource is best used as the baseball activity or game as described in the instructions page. It includes the following pages:
1) Cover page

WHY TEACH WORD ASSOCIATIONS?
Students need to improve their receptive and expressive vocabulary skills so that they can improve their functional communication, listening comprehension, reading comprehension, and overall understanding of their grade level curriculum. Teaching word associations is essential to students’ vocabulary acquisition and understanding of word relationships.
WHY CRITERION REFERENCED TESTS? This product has relevant Tier I and Tier III words to measure children’s performance on specific vocabulary targets. It allows speech language pathologists to gather accurate baseline data and progress check data over time. This is helpful to describe students’ present level of performance at IEP meetings and on progress notes for school based and private practice clinicians.
