Question

What is the Peanut Butter Protocol?

Answer

The ''Peanut Butter'' Test was developed as a ''non-standardized'' protocol for eliciting pragmatic behaviors from preschool children (ages 3-5) in a ''communicative demand'' activity. A checklist of the behaviors accompanies it. There are actually two activities -- one is making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (hence the nickname ''Peanut Butter''), and the other is a drawing activity. Both protocols and the checklist are attached.

The following reference provides a more complete description of the protocol and it's development, as well as some data from research using it.
