When children were tested at age 3 years and older, correlations remained stable; for example, Pearson product-moment correlations between BDI-computed DQ total scores at ages 3, 4, 5, and 6 years and corresponding WJR-ACH Broad Knowledge scores at ages 9, 10, 11, and 12 years were.

There was no difference in scores when gender or race was considered in this sample. McLean and colleagues 48 studied 65 children aged 7 to 72 months. They batte,le found the BDIST time-consuming to administer, but they did not report mean times of administration.

If children’s scores are lower than 65, the test manual gives a method to extrapolate a DQ. The correlations were between. Boyd et al 15 found Pearson product-moment correlations of.

The developkental generally indicated significant relationships between the tests and the individual domains of the BDI, although some of the correlations were not high.

Tests and Measurements All Journals search input. Correlations were high and positive for total BDI scores against 30 subdomain categories, providing support for the belief that a child’s performance should be consistent across domains. When selecting items, Newborg et al 5 stated that they considered the importance of the items in the functioning of the child’s everyday life, support for the items in the literature, the educational practitioner’s acceptance of the skill as a milestone in a child’s development, and whether therapists and educators could intervene on the item.


Newborg et al 5 examined interrater reliability by having a second rater score the tests of children. The test developers list the purposes of the BDIST as general screening of preschool and kindergarten children, monitoring children’s progress, identifying strengths and weaknesses of children to determine which children would benefit from a comprehensive assessment, and making placement and eligibility decisions.

Each of the domains is further divided into subdomains, which can batyelle scored separately.

Five item books—one for each domain—allow for flexible administration. InCongress passed Public Law 99—, which provided incentives for bttelle to develop early childhood intervention programs for qualified infants and toddlers from birth through 2 years of age and their families. Mott did not specify the statistic used, but found correlations supporting the concurrent validity of the total communication domain and the expressive language subdomain of the BDI. The size of the sample also was potentially limited.

Factorial validity was described by Newborg et al 5 as a type of construct validity. The examiner’s manual includes chapters on scoring and interpretation that show how to apply BDI scores. Although such information is can be useful for determining whether a child has a developmental delay, knowledge that a child can or cannot perform such test items often is not useful for program planning purposes. More accurate visibility of growth.


Other researchers have related BDI scores with scores of other tests. It is possible to profile domain and subdomain scores and compare strengths and weaknesses in various areas. Validity Validity refers to the degree to which a meaningful interpretation can be inferred from a test. It furthers the University’s objective invsntory excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

As a norm-referenced assessment, BDI-2 NU guides the determination of developmental delays or eligibility for special services. BDI-2 Spanish makes it possible to screen, diagnose, and evaluate the early childhood development of non-English-proficient children. These tools can lead to the identification of children who are not functioning within age-appropriate or performance-based expectations.

BDI-2 NU is an early childhood assessment that tests 5 global developmental domains and 13 subdomains, determining their strengths and needs inventorry personal-social, adaptive, motor, communication, and cognitive skill sets.
