Description

The TAPS-3 measures what a person does with what is heard. It provides a way to identify particular auditory processes that the individual may be having difficulties with, allowing appropriate remediation strategies to be planned. This assessment was developed to be used by speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and other clinicians who are interested in, and have been trained to assess, a child's ability to comprehend auditory information.

The structure of the TAPS-3 represents the current views of auditory processing. Subtests (and items within each subtest) progress from the most basic skills to the most complex. The nine TAPS-3 subtests provide information for four main areas (reflected as Index scores), confirmed by factor analysis. In addition, there is one optional subtest presented on CD. The indices and subtests are:

Auditory Attention:

Optional Auditory Figure-Ground screener presented at the start of the test session

Basic Phonological Skills:

Subtest 1: Word Discrimination

Subtest 2: Phonological Segmentation

Subtest 3: Phonological Blending

Auditory Memory

Subtest 4: Number Memory Forward

Subtest 5: Number Memory Reversed

Subtest 6: Word Memory

Subtest 7: Sentence Memory

Auditory Cohesion:

Subtest 8: Auditory Comprehension

Subtest 9: Auditory Reasoning


Administration and Scoring

TAPS-3 scoring features:

  • Partial credit for test responses allow a more accurate rendering of abilities
  • Three index scores (Basic Phonological Skills, Auditory Memory, and Auditory Cohesion) are derived using combinations of subtest scores; these reflect functional areas indicated by current literature
  • Overall score is based on the sum of all subtest scaled scores
