The Home Bilingual Usage Estimate (HUE) measures a person's language usage in the home and yields a single score that classifies the person according to a criterion scale. The classifications are: English monolingual, English dominant, Apparent bilingual, Spanish dominant, and Spanish monolingual. The time required to complete the HUE interview with an adult is approximately 6 minutes, and the interview should be conducted by a bilingual aide. Test-retest reliability was estimated as .97 using the Pearson product-moment procedure. Concurrent validity between the scores on HUE and estimates of language usage by a bilingual educator was established as .95.
