Lexical Test for Malay Speakers

LexMAL is a 5-minute lexical test designed for cognitive researchers to quickly estimate the proficiency of the Malay language through the assessment of vocabulary knowledge. Validation studies have shown that LexMAL is suitable for both first- and second-language Malay speakers and can reliably differentiate the two groups. The development, validation, and psychometric properties of LexMAL are described in a manuscript1 that is under review for publication. LexMAL was inspired by the success of LexTALE2 and other similarly designed lexical tests.
