Validity: Content-description validity was established through careful selection of items, controlled vocabulary, construct review by a panel of language experts, conventional item analysis, differential item functioning analysis, and form equivalence. Criterion-prediction validity was established by correlating TELD-3 standard scores with a variety of widely recognized measures of language ability (i.e., CELF Preschool, EOWPVT, PLS-3, PPVT-Revised, ROWPVT, and TOLD-P:3).

Limiting bias: Given the general concern with potential bias in test items, the TELD-3 was examined to ensure that little or no bias relative to gender, disability, racial, socioeconomic, or ethnic groups existed.
