Bibliography of Tests for Early Childhood Chapter 1 Evaluation.
Designed to aid in Chapter 1 evaluation efforts, this bibliography provides information about types of tests and other measures designed to assess young children. Bibliographic summaries were based on information from publishers' manuals and scholarly reviews. Criteria for including a test in the bibliography were that the test: (1) was designed for use with children in preschool or kindergarten; (2) had been published in the last 10 years or was older but continued to be used regularly; (3) could be administered by teachers or trained teacher aides; and (4) was designed for developmental screening, assessment of instructional readiness or achievement, or program evaluation. The bibliography summarizes 36 tests, 16 of which were concerned with developmental screening; 21 with instructional readiness or achievement; 2 with assessment and instructional management; 5 with observation, rating scales, and checklists; 16 with prekindergarten; and 7 with nationally normed achievement tests. (Tests could be categorized as concerning more than one area.) Of the 36 tests covered, 8 were in Spanish or had Spanish directions. Summaries highlight factual information about the overview, purpose, content, administration, scores, scoring, standardization, norming, technical characteristics, components, publisher, and reviews of each test. Since reviewers' judgments vary, each summary includes test review sources, as available. (RH)
