A Validity Study of the AGS Early Screening Profiles with the Stanford-Binet Fourth Edition as Criterion.
Genteman, Michelle R.
The AGS Early Screening Profiles (AGS:ESP) instrument (P. Harrison, 1990) has been introduced recently as a screening instrument for predicting mental ability. A study was conducted to determine the degree of concurrent validity between the AGS:ESP and the Stanford Binet Fourth Edition (SB:FE), an instrument often used by psychologists to detect mental impairments in children. Subjects were children from Illinois who attended the Head Start Program. Four hypotheses were tested: (1) that there would be a significant positive correlation between the AGS:ESP Cognitive/Language Profile score and the SB:FE Test Composite score; (2) that there would be a significant positive correlation between the AGS:ESP Cognitive/Language Profile score and the SB:FE Standard Area scores; (3) that there would be a significant positive correlation between the AGS:ESP Cognitive and Language subscale scores and the SB:FE Test Composite score; and (4) that there would be a significant positive correlation between the AGS:ESP Cognitive and Language subscale scores and the SB:FE Standard Area scores. All of these hypotheses were supported, and results also support the use of the AGS:ESP as a screening instrument for use with preschool children from low income families.
