The HPNT is a confrontation naming test designed to evaluate rapid-naming ability across age groups. It consists of 100 line drawings of noun objects familiar to both children and adults. For most subjects who are beyond age eight years, the HPNT is a test of accuracy and speed of lexical access. For younger subjects it also tests lexical extent or vocabulary. It provides comparative norms for Australian students with English as their only language, English as their main language, and English as a foreign language. A number of case studies are also provided, based on the responses obtained.
