Understanding and Choosing Assessments and Developmental Screeners for Young Children Age 3-5: Profiles of Selected Measures

The 2007 reauthorization of Head Start requires Head Start programs to use child assessments and developmental screeners that are developmentally, linguistically, and culturally appropriate, as well as valid and reliable in the language in which they are used. This compendium was created to address this need and to promote the use of reliable and valid assessment data, wherever possible, in Head Start and other early childhood programs.
