The Predictive Validity of an Abbreviated Screening Battery: A Preliminary Cross Validation Study.
Satz, Paul; Friel, Janette
This study determines whether an abbreviated test battery, administered in September, could predict achievement ratings at the end of kindergarten in June of a group of kindergarten children in an elementary school. An additional purpose was to institute a prevention program on a random sample of predicted high-risk children in this group and to evaluate the test outcomes despite the possible ameliorative effects of treatment. The sample consisted of 28 black students and 104 white students who entered kindergarten in September 1974. The results provide additional support for the predictive validity of this abbreviated screening battery. The major reservation concerning the results of this study is the tentative, if not premature, state of the achievement criterion. (RB)
