Relationships between the K-ABC and the Early Screening Profiles.
Lasee, Michael J.; Smith, Douglas K.
This study compared the effectiveness of the recently-developed Early Screening Profiles (ESP) with the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC), two screening tests designed to measure the cognitive, language, motor, and social development of preschool children. The tests were administered in counterbalanced order to a sample of 29 children between the ages of 3 and 6 by examiners trained in the administration of both tests. The study found that Pearson product moment correlations among scales purportedly measuring similar constructs were statistically significant and in the moderate to high range. The results indicate that the ESP and the K-ABC have substantial overlap and that the ESP can be effectively used as a preschool screening measure. (MDM)
