Checklists for Profiling Language Samples
The QUAD© Profile is a simple analysis tool that allows you to take a sample of language and compare it against a set of checklists. The checklists look at four levels of language:
Vocabulary – the words an individual uses to build sentences
Morphology – the way words change within a sentence
Syntax – the order of words in a sentence
Function – what the purpose of a sentence is
The profile does not give a score and is not intended to do so. However, there are some norms provided so you can get a general idea of where a client is succeeding or having difficulties.
