An Annotated Bibliography of Practical Tests for Young Children. (Third Revised Edition).
Tests for the very young child must be nonverbal, and must be fairly brief, inexpensive, and reasonably simple to score and administer. This annotated bibliography represents a selected sample of 109 tests for children aged two through six. The selection covers most of the areas assessed in early childhood programs, including intelligence, language, speech, self-concept, body coordination, perception, vision, sociability and other cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills and abilities. Tests listed do not require subjective judgment in scoring or specialized training for administration. Information is contained in two tables. Table I lists the tests alphabetically by title and points out which of the following areas or skills are covered in the instrument: intelligence/achievement; language/speech; social/affective; sensory/motor; and screening/readiness/ diagnostic. Table II is an alphabetical list which provides the title, type, price, publisher, age or grade range recommended by the test's author, forms of test, administration time, subtests and comments obtained from catalogs and bibliographies intended to help the reader better understand the test itself. A list of publishers and their addresses is included as is the list of references used in compiling the bibliography. (RL)
