A Comprehensive Approach to Evaluating Educational Progress.
Dougherty, Larry W.; And Others
The Public Schools of Brookline, Massachusetts are operating a pilot program to assist families during the first five years of a child's life. The multidisciplinary program, entitled the Brookline Early Education Project (BEEP), aims to help each child obtain optimal physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. The program begins at the child's birth and includes both diagnostic and education services throughout the preschool years. This paper focuses on the assessment of children when they enter kindergarten in the area of health, general cognition, specific cognition, social skills and executive skills. Procedures pilot tested to measure these skills were the Pediatric Examination of Educational Readiness, the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities, the Meeting Street Screening Test, the Executive and Social Skills Profile, and the General Competence Rating Scale.
