Although it’s difficult to get an exact assessment of someone’s vocabulary, it’s still important to find out as much as you can about their knowledge of words and phrases. This is because vocabulary knowledge is a key factor in being a fluent and independent reader.

(You can read more about the challenges of assessing vocabulary on pages 61-62 in Applying Research in Reading Instruction for Adults (NIFL 2005) .

The full document can be found at http://lincs.ed.gov/publications/publications.html)
