This resource book assists in selecting appropriate instruments to use in assessing preschool children suspected of having disabilities. For each of the 68 tests reviewed, the following information is provided: author, publisher, copyright date, price, purpose, description, range of children, testing time, scoring, examiner, standardization, reliability and validity, concerns, and references. A summary matrix lists all of the tests and indicates, for each test: the age range; whether the test is norm-referenced or criterion-referenced; the test's use in screening, diagnosis, or programming; areas of development assessed; and availability of data concerning standardization, reliability, and validity. The resource book also contains: (1) portions of the Arizona Revised Statutes which reference eligibility for special education for preschool children; (2) definitions and recommendations for the assessment of preschool children developed by the Arizona Department of Education after the Arizona Preschool Assessment Summit; and (3) a list of five recommended readings and available technical assistance opportunities.
