Word Use Fluency-Revised

Beta 3 Overview

Important This is an Experimental Version

Word Use Fluency-Revised (WUF-R) Beta 3 is now available to research partners. WUF-R is an untimed measure of oral language and expressive vocabulary for students in kindergarten through third grade. Each form includes 15 words and the student is asked to use the word in a sentence.

WUF-R Beta 3 introduces partial credit scoring in addition to the full credit scoring of previous versions. The partial credit scoring will allow credit to be given to students who convey knowledge of the word's meaning and/or appropriate use, but do not answer in a complete sentence or do not use the exact form of the word.

To participate in research regarding WUF-R or to use the measure for benchmarking purposes, please e-mail Dr. Courtney Wheeler at
