Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing – Second Edition (CTOPP-2)

The Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing – Second Edition (CTOPP-2; Wagner, Torgesen, Rashotte, & Pearson, 2013) is an individually administered, norm-referenced measure of phonological awareness, phonological memory, and rapid naming. The tool is helpful in identifying individuals with poor phonological processing abilities in individuals aged 4 to 24.

Overview

The purposes of the CTOPP-2 include identifying students who are behind in developing phonological skills and determining which skills have not been acquired or adequately developed. The supplemental tests allow for assessing specific strengths and weaknesses related to phonological processes.
