**EYT EXPRESSIVE VOCABULARY 2: now including verbs, as well as additional high difficulty items to increase the age and ability range assessed.**
Early Years Toolbox (EYT) Expressive Vocabulary 2 is an iPad-based assessment of children's ability to identify and produce the target vocabulary words in response to depicted stimuli. It consists of 55 cartoon pictures of objects (e.g., flower) and actions (e.g., winking), for which children are asked to verbally name each item. Items are presented in developmental sequence, with a stop rule after a series of incorrect responses to prevent frustration associated with overly difficult items. This assessment takes an average of 5 minutes to complete.
Scores are presented on the final assessment screen. For more precise research applications, there are options to have the item by item data sent to a user-specified e-mail address or database.

About the Early Years Toolbox:
The 'Early Years Toolbox' (EYT, for short) is comprised of brief, engaging game-like assessments of children’s self-regulation, executive functioning and vocabulary. These assessments are based on well-established and widely used measures, yet have been adapted and optimised on the basis of 20+ years of research experience working with young children.
