As children age, they typically attain critical skills and behaviors sequentially, from simple to complex. Assessment of developmental strengths and needs during this time is critical for early development centers, private clinicians, schools, and others seeking to determine the need for educational resources or interventions and build plans accordingly.
The Battelle® Developmental Inventory, Third Edition™ (BDI-3™) measures mastery of developmental milestones in the following global domains:
The BDI-3 is proud to present the Battelle Early Academic Survey (BEAS), a new academic solution for those wanting to assess literacy and mathematics skills for children ages 3 years 6 months to 7 years 11 months.
The BEAS contains items targeting early foundational skills in Literacy and Mathematics. What truly sets the BEAS apart? There's no need to wait until age 5 as required by most other early childhood academic assessments.
The five literacy sub-domains and the four mathematics sub-domains in BEAS are all key indicators of how the child will do when he or she first enters school. Because the BEAS can be administered to children through 7 years, 11 months, it will also help to monitor these skills as the child continues their path towards early academic success.
