What are the system requirements to run Compton PESL Online program?
PC/MAC High speed Internet. Windows version 7.0 or higher.  The program is optimized for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari browsers.Back to Top

SECTION I – SCREENING AND ASSESSMENT RECORDINGS

How do I record my clients online?
You’ll need to create a link for your client and send it to them via email so they can access the recording program. Click  the “Online Recording” button on the main page of ComptonPESLonline.com. Select “Create a link for my client”.  Follow the directions to fill out the form.You can write a message to your client something like “Dear _____,  Click on this link to take you directly to the Recording Program.  Make sure you allow yourself about 25 minutes (10 minutes for the Screening) in a quiet setting to complete the recording process.  Let me know if you have any questions.”  When you click the Submit button the link and your message will be automatically sent to your client’s email address. You should receive a duplicate email in your own inbox.Back to Top

How will I know when the client has finished the Screening or Assessment Recording?
If you created a link for your client using your authorized email address and your client’s correct email address and if your client correctly filled out Section I Background Information of the recording program then you should receive an email message with the subject: Screening Request Submission or Analysis Request Submission. When you open the email you should be able to see your client’s background information in the text of the email.Back to Top

What should I do if my client said he made the recordings but I haven’t received any message in my inbox?
If you don’t receive an email message indicating the Screening or Analysis submission you may still be able to access your client’s recordings.  Just access the Player on the main page of the website. Enter your email address and then your client’s email address.  If they were successful in completing the recordings they should appear in the player directory.  You can create a link for your client again just like you did earlier and tell them to just fill out Section I Background Information and try sending it again. They won’t need to do any more recordings. Back to Top

 

How can I record my clients online while they are in my office or I am in their office?
You don’t have to record your clients remotely.  You may want to meet with them in person.  They can still use the online recording program to complete the Screening or Phonological Assessment. To get them started just click the “Online Recording” button on ComptonPESLonline.com.  Select “Access the Phonological Assessment (or Screening) Recording”. Type in your email address (that’s YOUR email address – not your client’s). Then select the recording type. The next screen will be Section I Background Information.  Either you or your client can fill this out. You can control the recorder on each subsequent page if you want to  or you can allow your client to progress through the program independently with you providing encouragement and prompting as needed. Back to Top
What should I do if my client is having difficulty using the recording program?
Prompt your client to carefully read the instructions on the first page of the assessment and to test their microphone using the test recorder. If they continue to have difficulty please contact us at info@ComptonPESLonline.com  Back to Top

How do I listen to my client’s recordings?
To listen to the screening or phonological assessment recordings just click on the Player button
on the main page. Type in your email address and your client’s email address. You may want to copy and paste their address directly from the background information in your email inbox then click submit. On the left side of the player you will see all of your client’s recordings. Each of the recordings is identified by type – Screening, Eval or Reeval; section; month and day recorded, and the time it was recorded (military time). Click to highlight the desired recording. It will load and should begin playing automatically. You can pause the playback at any time. You can rewind or fast-forward as desired. The other location of this player is on the Phonetic Transcription screen. This will be convenient when you are going to use the online transcription portion of this program. Back to Top

Yes. If you’d prefer using another player you can  download the recordings in an to your desktop.  Then open it in the player of your choice. Back to Top

 

Can I download the recordings?
Yes.  Just select and highlight the desired recording and then click on the “Download” button on the Player. Back to Top

 

What do I do when my client has finished the course and it’s time for his re-evaluation?
The recording process is exactly the same. When your client is ready to make the reassessment recordings you will need to create and then send a link to the recording pages just like you did for the initial Time 1 recordings.  Click on the “Recording” button on the main page of the website. Then create a link for your client this time selecting the Reevaluation program. The link that is automatically sent to your client’s email inbox will take them to the Introduction page of the Reevaluation.  There is a shorter version of the background information page where they will, most importantly, enter their email address which will ensure that you, as the teacher, will be able to retrieve their recordings. Your client will then follow the same instructions to record the 66 stimulus response words, which are divided between 2 pages, and the reading passage. The last page will congratulate them for successfully completing the re-evaluation. Back to Top

How long will my client’s recordings be accessible?
You may access your client’s recordings at anytime at www.ComptonPESLonline.com.  We also encourage you to download the recordings on to your computer. Back to Top

 

Can I practice using the Screening and Assessment Recordings?
Yes. It is important that you, as the teacher, become familiar with the online screening and assessment tools. That way you’ll be able to answer most questions your client may have when they use this online program. Here’s how you can try it out on your own. Click on the “Recording” button on the main page and then select the link to either the Screening or the Phonological Assessment. Enter your email address. After you click Submit you will see Section I Background Information and you should see your email address in the “Send To” box. Go ahead and enter fictitious information in the rest of the boxes or you can leave them blank. Just use your own email as a fictitious client. On each subsequent page follow the instructions and practice making recordings, playing back to listen to sound quality and then sending them. When you’re done check your email inbox. Within a few minutes there should be an email that says Analysis Request submission in the subject line. The background information will appear in the message area. Back to Top

 

How can I listen to my practice recordings?
Click on the “Player” button on ComptonPESLonline.com. Enter your email address and the one you made up for your practice client. The recordings should then appear to the left of the player.  Also, check to make sure you received an email in your inbox that says “Analysis (or Screening) Request Submission”. Back to Top

SECTION II –  PHONETIC TRANSCRIPTION ONLINE
How do I access the Phonetic Transcription program?
When you are ready to transcribe your client’s evaluation recordings just click on the Transcription button on www.ComptonPESLonline.com. Enter your teacher name and password. If this is a new client enter their name. Then click to open the drop down list of email addresses. If your client has successfully filled out and sent Section I of the evaluation their email address should appear here. Just click on it to select. Then select a session name. Time 1 is the initial evaluation. Then select a language. If your client’s primary language is one of the 51 languages listed in the directory just click to highlight. If it is not then type in the name of their primary language in the box to the right of the language directory. Now login.Back to Top

 

How do I change my password?
Click on the “Forgot your password?”  link on the Transcription login screen. Back to Top

 

What should I do if I forget my password?
Click on the “Forgot your password?”  link on the Transcription login screen. Back to Top

 

What if my client’s primary language is not listed as one of the 51 language specific protocols?
You can still use the Transcription program.  It just won’t be pre-populated with language specific error choices.  Type your client’s language in the blank box to the right of the language list on the login page. Back to Top

 

What’s the difference between Time I, Modeled, and Time 2 Sessions?
Time I is for transcribing the initial evaluation.  Modeled is for transcribing the modeled reading passage.  Time 2 is for transcribing the final evaluation. Back to Top

 

Can I use a different player to listen to my client’s recordings?
Yes. If you’d prefer using another player you can download the recordings in an to your desktop. Just click on the “Download” link underneath the recordings on the player. Then open it in the player of your choice for example Windows Media Player.Back to Top

 

Do I have to use the online recording program in order to use the online Phonetic Transcription program?You do not have to use the online recorder.  You can use an audio recorder or any recording software. However, the online recorder on ComptonPESLonline.com has very good quality . Back to Top

 

How do I begin the online Phonetic Transcription?
After you click on the “Transcription” button from the main page of ComptonPESLonline.com and login you will see the Phonetic Transcription Screen. The player will be at the bottom of the screen. If you have chosen to download the recordings to listen to them on a different player you can hide this player from view. Just click and drag on the horizontal line above the player. You will see the 66 stimulus words and the reading passage above the player. When you click on a word it opens to reveal each phonetically transcribed sound that is tested in that word. Each tested phoneme is elicited at the word and sentence level. The sounds position in that word or its phoneme classification is also indicated. For example, for the word “horse” the initial consonant /h/ was tested at the word-level and the sentence level. The diphthong /or/ was tested at the word-level and the sentence-level. The final consonant /s/ was tested at the word-level and the sentence-level.Back to Top

 

How do I enter my client’s error sounds?
Begin playing back your client’s recordings either on the player provided on this page or the player of your choice. There are 2 ways to enter your client’s error sounds. Most of the time you will use a combination of both.
1) Using Language Specific Error Choices
The language specific forms have typical error sounds already provided for you to choose if appropriate. Just click on the error sound to select. You should then see that selected error sound appear in the error sound box or boxes.
2) Using the Drop-Down IPA box
If your client produced a sound that is not represented as one of the language specific error choices. Just click on the blank error sound box to access a drop down grid of IPA symbols and choose the one you want. The drop down grid will disappear and your selected IPA symbol should appear in that error sound box. If you change your mind, just click on the box again to obtain the IPA symbols and make your correction. You can also erase the error sound you chose by clicking on the space in the upper left corner of the drop down grid. Back to Top

 

Why are there 4 error sound boxes?
Some errors that your client makes will be represented by more than one symbol. That’s why there are 4 error sound boxes in each row. For example, if your client produced an unaspirated /p/ you would need to select the /p/ symbol and the symbol that represents unaspirated (=). In some cases you will need all 4 error sound boxes to display an error sound group such as a 3 element /s/ blend produced with a vowel /ɛ/ inserted at the beginning commonly heard in Spanish accented English. Next you will click on the spontaneous count box to indicate that your client has made this error one time. The long white rectangular box is for typing in the context of the error. Make sure you close this window before continuing with other transcription.Back to Top

 

 

What if I make a mistake in my transcription?
You can click on the language specific error choices to change your selection. Or you can click on the error sound box to obtain the drop down menu of IPA symbols and then choose the one you want. Also, in the upper left corner of the IPA drop down grid there is a blank area. Click on it to completely clear the error sound box. Back to Top

 

How often do I need to save my work?
Save your work FREQUENTLY!The Save/Submit button is at the top of the Phonetic Transcription screen.We suggest saving your work every few minutes. Watch the green rolling bar when you click on the button. When it stops moving your work has been saved. Then you can continue on with your transcription. You can save your work by clicking on the save/submit button as often as you want. If you need to leave the computer for a while or you want to finish the transcription at a later time make sure you save/submit your work before closing out the program. When you log back in the transcription you have already completed will be saved.Back to Top

 

Where do I transcribe my client’s spontaneous speech errors during the carrier sentences?
To document spontaneous speech errors click on any of the question mark symbols
along the left margin of the Phonetic Transcription Screen. This will  open up a stairstep menu of phoneme classifications – consonants, vowels, diphthongs, blends and clusters.  As you move your cursor over each classification the menu opens further to display subcategories for that class. Moving your cursor over these subcategories narrows your search even more to allow you to select the target phoneme of your choice as well as the word position of that phoneme. The last part of the menu displays the pop-up window where you will enter your client’s error sound. At the top of this area you should see the target sound. In the middle of the box you will see the error sound boxes. Your client may make more than one type of substitution error for a particular sound. Therefore we have provided 3 rows for 3 different potential error sounds. When you click on the error sound box you will bring up the IPA symbols. Just select the IPA symbol that represents the error your client made.Back to Top

What if I make a mistake in transcribing spontaneous speech sounds?
You can erase any symbol by clicking on it to bring up the IPA drop down menu. Then click on the blank area in the upper left corner of the menu.  Or you can select another symbol to replace the one chosen previously. Back to Top

Why are there 3 rows of error sound boxes?
Your client may make more than one type of substitution error for a particular sound.
Therefore we have provided 3 rows for 3 different potential error sounds. When you click on the error sound box you will bring up the IPA symbols. Just select the IPA symbol that represents the error your client made.Back to Top

 

Where do I transcribe my client’s errors from the modeled reading passage?
Remember your client listened and repeated the phrases from the first paragraph of the Reading
passage. Now it’s time to identify any of their errors from the Modeled Reading Section.
After saving your transcription entries from the reading passage go to the top of the screen and click on the link that says “Continue”. This will take you back to the Main Login Screen. Enter
your password. Your client’s name should still be there. Now select “Modeled” for the session name. Their language should still be accurately identified. Log in.Back to Top

How do I know if my client made the same errors during the modeled reading as he did during Time I?
Now you will see the first paragraph of  the reading passage.  The player is at the bottom. When you click on the words in the boxes you will see your client’s errors from Time I in a lighter shade in the error sound box.  Begin to listen to your client’s recording labeled Eval_Model.  As the recording plays you will hear pauses between your client’s utterances.  The pauses are when they were listening to the online teacher’s model. If you hear the same error in any given word just click on that lightly shaded phoneme and it will darken.  If you don’t hear the error just leave it alone. The program will know not to count it as a modeled reading error.  If they made a different error just click on the appropriate language specific error choice or click twice on the box itself to obtain the drop down grid of IPA symbols. When you have finished transcribing make sure you save your work. Back to Top

 

How do I find out the percent improvement between Time I and the Modeled Reading
After you save your transcription work on the modeled reading section click on the “Comparison” link to view the results of your client’s Modeled Reading pronunciation ability. Enter your password, select Modeled for the session and then login. Direct your attention to the right half of the table at the top. You will see the number of errors your client made during their reading of the first paragraph during Time I. Next to that you will see how many errors they made during the modeled reading section. It also shows the percent change which will help you in forming a prognosis for improvement for your client. For example, if the client made 51 errors during Time I but only 10 errors during the Modeled reading it indicates an 80 % improvement. Make a note of the percent improvement and then close out this screen. DO NOT USE ANY OF THE LINKS ON THIS SCREEN. Return to the Modeled reading portion of the Phonetic Transcription screen and click on the “Continue” link to return to the login. Log back in and select Time I to continue with your transcription.

Note:
If you want to view the Results Summary Screen again do the following steps:
1)  Click on “Phonetic Transcription” on the main page of the website;
2)  Enter username/password, select client, select “Modeled” for session name;
3  )Click on the “Comparison” link at the top of the Modeled Reading screen. Back to Top

 

Where do I transcribe my client’s spontaneous speech errors during the conversational speech sample?
The next step in this process is to transcribe any errors from your client’s conversational speech sample.
That’s from Section 4 of the evaluation. Click to highlight the recording in the player labeled Eval_Spont. You will do all of your transcribing for this recording using the target phoneme locator menu. This is the same menu you used when transcribing your client’s spontaneous speech errors in the carrier sentences. This is accessed by clicking on any of the question mark symbols along the left margin.Back to Top

 

How do I document my client’s grammar errors?
If you hear a grammar error just click on any of the exclamation marks along the right margin. This will open up a text box where you can type in the sentence containing the grammar errors.Back to Top

 

I’ve finished transcribing.  What do I do next?
There is one more thing you need to do to prepare your client’s Personal Speech Analysis – select a general frequency of occurrence of errors. You will do this by using two screens. The Transcription Display Screen and the Pattern Analysis. To view the Transcription Display screen click on the “Transcription Display” link at the top of the page. This will take you to the Login page. Enter your password and select Time 1. On this page you will see the phonemes that your client mispronounced. They are categorized and displayed on the left margin of this screen. If your client did not make any errors for a specific tested phoneme that phoneme will not appear in the left margin. The phoneme position and frequency in the 66 stimulus words are also displayed. For example the consonant /p/ was presented in the initial position 4 times and in the final position 2 times. If you hover your cursor over the position labels a pop-up will appear displaying the words in which those target sounds were tested. For example: /p/ in the final position was tested in the 29th word “mop” and in the Reading passage in the word “up”. On the Compton PESL phonemes are tested in the initial and final positions for the 66 stimulus response words. However in this online format we have provided an opportunity to document the occurrence of errors in the middle position for the reading passage and spontaneous speech sections. You will now see all of your client’s errors displayed in the error boxes for each tested phoneme. After the error sound boxes you will see 4 columns. They are identified as word count, sentence count, reading count, and spontaneous count. They will contain numbers that were derived from the selections you made on the phonetic transcription screen. If you hover your cursor over the numbers in the first 3 columns a pop-up will appear showing the exact words in which your client produced the error. The contexts of the spontaneous speech errors, that you typed in on the phonetic transcription screen, will all be displayed in this error context boxes. You’ll also find any grammar errors that you entered in the grammar error box near the top of the page. Back to Top

How do I attribute a frequency of occurrence for each error sound?

The only step left in completing your client’s analysis is to attribute a general frequency to the occurrence of errors. The gray rectangular  box labeled Frequency, on the Transcription Display Screen, allows you to select a general frequency of errors produced for that specific target phoneme.Remember you can look at the Pattern Analysis to help you in this decision. When you are ready to select the frequency just click on the gray rectangular box to the right of each error sound. Select occasionally ,50%, usually, or always. Base your judgment regarding this selection of frequency on the recommendations provided by your Compton PESL Certification training. If you make a mistake you can always click on the box again to make another selection. If an error has only occurred at the reading or spontaneous speech level consider selecting “occasionally”, as the frequency, since the target sounds in these sections are not quantified. When you are finished selecting the frequencies it is very important to click on the save/submit button again to save these selections. After the page reloads your work is done. Back to Top

How do I access my client’s Pattern Analysis?
Click on the link at the top of the Transcription Display Screen labeled “Pattern Analysis”. Or you can access your client’s Pattern Analysis anytime you want by looking under “Reports and Tools” on the
main page of www.ComptonPESLonline.com. Back to Top

 

How can I use the Pattern Analysis to help me make a decision regarding frequency of occurrence of errors?
The Pattern analysis is an organized summary of the phonetic data you recorded on the Phonetic Transcription Screen. The Compton PESL online program does this for you. Some teachers find it helpful to look at the Pattern Analysis side by side with the Transcription display screen as they perform the final step to preparing their client’s
personal speech analysis. To view both screens just right click on the Pattern Analysis link at the top of the page and open it in a new window.   Now reposition the screens by clicking and dragging to resize, as necessary, so you can view both screens at the same time. Back to Top

What do the colored ticmarks represent?

The Pattern Analysis displays all of the tested phonemes and the occurrence of those phonemes in the 66 stimulus words. Your client’s errors are shown with corresponding colored ticmarks indicating context and frequency.  The red marks indicate stimulus words in isolation black = stimulus words in context; blue = reading and green = spontaneous speech. For example: If a client produced an unaspirated /p/ 2 times at the word level there will be 2 red ticmarks || 2 times at the sentence level will have 2 black ticmarks ||; 3
times at the reading level will have 3 blue ticmarks ||| and twice at the spontaneous speech level will be indicated by 2 green ticmarks ||.. Back to Top 

Not all of my client’s errors are on the Pattern Analysis. Why not?

Please keep in mind neither the Pattern Analysis nor the Personal Speech Analysis display
errors your client made in the MIDDLE position of words. You can review those errors whenever you want by looking back at the Transcription Display screen. You may also want to review the contexts in which your client’s spontaneous speech and grammar errors occurred by looking
at the Transcription Display Screen. One of the benefits of this online format is that all of your client’s recordings, phonetic transcription, pattern analysis and personal speech analysis are
available for you to see at any time. You can select any of the buttons on the home page of the website to retrieve this information.Back to Top.

Can I print out the Pattern Analysis?

Yes. Use your keyboard’s shortcut to Print from your browser.  You may want to look at Print Preview first and adjust the scale to your preference before printing as the scale may vary depending on the browser. Back to Top

How can I create a Pattern Analysis Class Summary Form?

The individual speech analyses of multiple clients can be collected and viewed in a single chart to make it easier to compare their similarities and differences.  To create this chart click on the Reports and Tools button on the main page of www.ComptonPESLonline.com. After entering your username and password, Control-Click to highlight the clients whose analyses you would like in the chart.  Select Time I as the session and Login. Each column represents one client, and it becomes obvious that some error sounds are shared by all, some by two or three, and a few occur only for each individual. Check out the video titled “Compton PESL Online Summary Form” under the About>Videos section on the main page ComptonPESLonline.com.

 

How do I access my client’s Personal Speech Analysis?
Now your client’s Personal Speech Analysis is complete. The link to view it is at the top of the Transcription Display Screen and the Phonetic Transcription Screen. Or you can access it at any time by clicking on the “Personal Speech Analysis” on the main page of ComptonPESLonline.com. All of your client’s error sounds and frequencies are now filled in for you. You can email this to your client or print it out and place it in your client’s program notebook. When your client views it online they can click on the Phonetic Symbols table. This has an added feature of an audio recording of each target phoneme in the context of words. If they open this link in a separate window they can place each screen side by side to assist them in having a better understanding of which of their sounds were mispronounced. Back to Top

Can I print out the Personal Speech Analysis?
Yes. Just use your keyboard’s print function to print from the browser.  You may want to look at Print Preview first and adjust the scale to your preference before printing as the scale may vary depending on the browser.Remember, you will need a color printer to see the colored ticmarks.Back to Top

 

How do I send the Personal Speech Analysis to my client?
You can email the Personal Speech Analysis to your client. Just click on the “Email Link” at the top of the Transcription Display Screen or the Phonetic Transcription Screen. After logging in you will see a
screen that will allow you to type in a personal message to your client. When you select “Click to Send” the analysis will be automatically sent to your client’s email. You’ll receive a confirmation copy of this same email in your inbox as well.Back to Top

 

How long will my client’s recordings, transcription and reports be accessible online?
They will be available online up to a year. Back to Top

 

Do I do anything differently when I’m ready to transcribe my client’s reevaluation recordings ?
Note: See Section I, Chapter  5 of this Tutorial for a review on how to RECORD your client’s speech after they have finished the PESL course.

When transcribing your client’s re-evaluation recordings (Time 2) You will be able to refer to the errors made on the initial evaluation or Time 1 and simply select any errors that are still present. To begin the transcription process of your client’s Time 2 recordings click on the “Phonetic Transcription” button on the main page of www.ComptonPESLonline.com.  Enter your username and password. Since your client is already in the system search for their name in your client directory and click to highlight. As long as it has not changed their email address should then appear in the next row. Then select Time 2. Their specific language should automatically highlight for you. Now click login. The player at the bottom of the phonetic transcription screen should contain all of your client’s recordings. Use the scroll bar to locate the reevaluation recordings. They will be labeled Reeval 1-30, Reeval 31-66 and Reeval Read . Just click to highlight and the player will begin automatic playback. As with the Time 1 recordings you may choose to download the Time 2 recordings and play them on a different player. As you click on each word it will widen to reveal all of the phonemes tested. Your client’s errors from Time I will be in the error boxes in a lighter shade. If, when listening to the reevaluation recordings, you hear the same error produced then just click on that phoneme and it will darken. Just leave it alone if they don’t make that error. If they made a different error click in the box to obtain the IPA symbols. Or choose a language specific error. Remember to transcribe any spontaneous speech errors from the carrier sentences using the phoneme locator represented by any of the question marks along the left margin. And make a note regarding any grammar errors just like you did in Time 1. Save and submit this page when you are finished.Back to Top
