Ben Pham has been trialling the research version of the Vietnamese Speech Assessment (Pham, Le, & McLeod, 2015) in Ha Noi as part of her PhD data collection and Xuan Le has been assisting with reliability of transcription. We have been recording the levels and types of cues and prompts children require to identify the words/pictures during the testing.
Today we were able to discuss the content validity of the test items and pictures regarding children in Northern Vietnam (Ben), Southern Vietnam (Xuan Le), USA (Dr. Giang Pham), and Australia (Sharynne) over a delicious lunch at the Hanoi National University of Education. We were also able to ask a Vietnamese-English-speaking child from the USA which words she knew from the VSA. Each of these procedures strengthens the content validity of the test.
