Kindergarten Language Screening Test: 1982-83 Norms. Research Report 83-06.
Stennett, R. G.; And Others
An integral part of London's early identification process involves an assessment of each pupil's speech and language development. During the 1981-82 school year some initial work was done on the development of a Kindergarten Language Screening Test (KLST). As a result, the KLST was modified and shortened. This paper reports the data derived from the administration of the revised KLST to all kindergarten children during December of the 1982-83 academic year. The major purposes of the analyses were: (1) to provide norms by sex and month of birth, (2) assess the psychometric properties of the revised KLST, and (3) provide data bearing on the concurrent validity of the test. The KLST, designed to assess 10 different aspects of a child's speech and language development, is contained in Appendix A. (Author/PN)
