Developmental Scales for Preschool Children. Annotated Bibliography of Tests.
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ. Test Collection.
Most of the 161 rating scales, observation instruments, and questionnaires in this bibliography are geared to assessing the developmental levels of preschoolers and children. There are, however, some scales to assess adults' and adolescents' development. Both non-handicapped and handicapped populations are represented. Developmental areas assessed include the following: sensory, motor, language, cognitive processes, intellectual, social, emotional, neurological, daily living skills, and Piagetian tasks. The instruments are used as screening tools to assess developmental delay or growth, as aids in planning educational and developmental experiences, as a means of determining current levels of development, and for identification of children with developmental lags. This document is one in a series of topical bibliographies from the Test Collection (TC) at Educational Testing Service (ETS) containing descriptions of more than 18,000 tests and other measurement devices prepared by commercial publishers, teachers, educational institutions, professional associations, departments of education, counselors, etc. Each description contains the following basic information: TC Accession Number (a six-digit identification number assigned by the Test Collection); the title of the instrument; personal or institutional author; year of publication or copyright; availability source; grade level for which test is suitable; age level for which test is suitable; and abstract. Other information, which is provided when known, includes subtests, number of test items, and time required to complete the test. Information on accessing the Test Collection via Internet concludes the document. (HAC)
