In the April 1992 issue of JSHR, Morrison and Shriberg present speech analyses on 61 children with speech delay that compares results from the Photo Articulation Test (Pendergast, Dickey, Selmar, & Soder, 1969) with those from conversational samples. They find significant differences between the two forms of data elicitation and conclude that conversational samples provide more accurate data for both research and clinical purposes, that is, “the present findings suggest that citation-form testing yields neither typical nor optimal measures of speech performance. Thus, as long as researchers and practitioners continue to base assessment results solely on different citation form tests … sampling procedures will continue to be a major source of bias in phonological assessment” (p. 271).
