The Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales for Early Childhood-Fifth Edition (Early SB5) is a specialised version derived directly from the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales - Fifth Edition (SB5). It provides a psychometrically superior, accessible, and cost-effective test of intelligence for use with young children, from 2 years to 7 years 3 months.
The Early SB5 is designed for a wide variety of assessment purposes, including mental retardation, learning disabilities, developmental cognitive delays, developmental disabilities and exceptionalities, and intervention planning information-individual family plans, individual educational plans, and neuropsychological evaluation.
The Early SB5 Record Form is used in conjunction with the Early SB5 Item Books (1, 2 ad 3).
The examiner will utilise the appropriate Item Book, and record the scores in the corresponding area on the Record Form.
Depending on which Item Booklet is being used will impact how the examiner fills out the Record Form.
The Early SB5 Manual (chapter 3) provides detailed instructions on Administration of the Early SB5 and how to use of the Record Form.
