HPI (TPSI) Manual [and] Worksheet [and] Scoresheet.
Haber, Julian S.
The HPI Texas Preschool Screening Inventory (TPSI) is a test to help determine which children might be a risk for learning problems as they enter kindergarten or first grade. The HPI Manual describes the procedure, score interpretation, and rationale for seven components of the test, including auditory memory for numbers and letters, visual memory for objects; auditory sequencing (syntax); articulation; sound discrimination; rotation and reversals of letters and numbers; and following instructions. The instrument is not meant as a definitive test of a child's abilities; failure of the screening test is shown to indicate a need for further evaluation of the child. The worksheet presents a complete text of the procedure for each test component. For example, the auditory memory test requires that the child listen to and repeat a series of 3-, 4- and 5-digit numbers. Auditory sequencing requires that the child repeat sentences heard. The score sheet interprets performance on each component for children less than-4, 4, 5, and 6 years old. (CM)
