The present study aimed to search for evidence of validity using the full information factorial analysis for a computerized instrument that evaluates oral language comprehension. 119 children took part in the study, from five to ten year-olds that were going to kindergarten, K1 and K2 from the public schools system. The application oh the Computerized Battery of Oral Language (Bilo) was realized in a school environment, in the computer lab with a maximum of 10 children. The results obtained with the factorial analysis revealed that the items of each subtest indicate not only good factorial loads but also the unidimentionality of each test, noting the viability of the instrument in the analysis of oral language comprehension. It was noticed the necessity of the withdrawn of some items, suggesting a new configuration to the battery. It was identified the characteristics of the items per test as to their difficulties levels.
