Notice: I am thinking of conducting research on bilingual elementary school children (aged 6-12) and need standardized language tests in both English and Japanese to assess thier abilities in both languages and compare them. First I thought of PPVT but it is only done individually, and time consuming. I am looking for standardized test in the form of paper that can be done in class. Is there such test? Thanks.
