An Annotated Bibliography of Measurements for Young Children.
The list of entries in this bibliography represents a selected sample, not an exhaustive one, of assessment instruments for prekindergarten and kindergarten children. Some standard instruments which are commercially available are included, but the majority are research instruments used successfully on an experimental basis by investigators. With few exceptions they are individually administered. The selection covers the major assessment areas in early childhood research, which include measurement techniques geared specifically to the urban child from a low socioeconomic background. Other pertinent considerations include test validity and reliability data, childlike appeal, ease of administration, and scoring. The entries are organized into specific test categories indicating the type of behavior measured, such as: cognitive status, cognitive abilities; memory, attention, and learning; perceptual skills (visual and auditory); reading readiness; techniques for assessing cognitive style characteristics; and personal social development. Each entry is labeled R (research instrument) or C (commercially available), and I (individual administration) or G (group administration). Further information is provided on publishing houses or individuals to contact, in the case of research instruments. (LH)
