The Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals-Preschool (CELF-pre) is a downward extension of the CELF-3, an individually administered test that assesses receptive and expressive language ability. The CELF-pre explores the foundations of language form and content: word meanings, word and sentence structure, and recall of spoken language. The CELF-pre is comprised of six subtests, three in receptive language and three in expressive language areas. Each subtest yields a scaled score where 10 is the mean and scores from 7-13 are the range of average. Then each area’s subtests are then calculated to give a standard score where 100 is the mean and 85-115 is the range of average.
