Criteria for Evaluating Picture Story Books (CEPSB).
Designed to provide teachers in early childhood education and other interested educators with criteria for evaluating the quality of plot, characterization, and style in picture story books, this instrument uses a set of eight criteria for evaluating these literary elements. Each criterion is followed by statements that illustrate different ways an author might fulfill a criterion. Evaluators indicate the degree to which authors have achieved the standard, then rate each criterion on a one to five scale. (This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts, Volume 2," published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. The TRIP review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (literature), title, author, date, age range (postsecondary through adult), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
