TILLS™: Test of Integrated Language & Literacy Skills™

Developed by Nickola W. Nelson, Ph.D., Nancy Helm-Estabrooks, Sc.D., Gillian Hotz, Ph.D., and Elena Plante, Ph.D.

The Test of Integrated Language & Literacy Skills™ (TILLS™) is the groundbreaking assessment professionals need to test listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in students ages 6—18, and to assess the role of memory in how students perform. Reliable, valid, and comprehensive, TILLS will help you streamline assessment, monitor progress, and reach your ultimate goal: improving students' communication skills so they can succeed in school.

Why use TILLS?
TILLS is the only test that assesses both spoken AND written language and shows how these skills relate to each other. You'll get a meaningful profile of skills for each learner, so you can be sure you understand a student's strengths and needs and aren't overlooking something crucial. Unlike most other tests, TILLS also provides diagnostic accuracy in "age bands" meaningful to the development of language and literacy skills, so you'll have the evidence base you need to determine if test scores reflect typical or impaired performance. And if you're an experienced clinician, you can finish TILLS in just 90 minutes or less—which means you'll spend less time testing and more time helping students and planning interventions.

This Examiner's Kit gives you everything you need to get started with TILLS: an Examiner's Manual, Stimulus Book, 25 Record Forms, Technical Manual, Quick Start Guide, 1 Practice Workbook, 25 Student Response Forms, tablet of Student Rating Scales, and a USB drive of audio and text files.

By Gillian Hotz, Ph.D., Nancy Helm-Estabrooks, Sc.D., Nickola Wolf Nelson, Ph.D., & Elena Plante, Ph.D.

The complete PTBI™ includes an Examiner’s Manual with comprehensive guidelines and technical data; a Stimulus Book with all the visual stimuli needed to conduct the test; and Test Forms for recording information about the child’s performance and scoring PTBI™.
