Concurrent Validity of the Cognitive Domain of the Battelle Developmental Inventory in Relation to the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Test, Fourth Edition for Urban African-American Low SES Preschool Children.
Lidz, Carol S.; And Others
The relationship between scores on the cognitive domain of the Battelle Developmental Inventory (BDI) and scores on the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Test (SBIT), Fourth Edition, was studied for 32 urban, low socioeconomic status (SES), African American children (22 males and 10 females) aged 3 to 5 years. The BDI is a developmental inventory designed for individual administration to children between the ages of birth through 8 years. It covers five domains (personal-social, adaptive, motor, communication, and cognitive). Results document a moderate relationship between the two tests, with a highly significant difference between the means. SBIT scores are consistently higher than BDI scores. More than half of the subjects obtained the lowest developmental quotient on the BDI, with SBIT scores for the same subjects ranging into the high 80's. It is concluded that the BDI is a poor choice for eligibility and classification decisions for this population. One table summarizes ranges, means, and standard deviations. (Author/SLD)
