An investigation of the validity and reliability of the Battelle Developmental Inventory with a population of children younger than 30 months with identified handicapping conditions. The availability of 3 test ijventory increases the likelihood that children receive the highest possible score for all skills they can perform.

They measured factorial validity through a factor analysis of the pilot study data and found that the factor structure differs depending on the age of the child. BDI-2 NU provides actionable data for immediate instruction and intervention.

The BDI is administered by first finding a basal level, which is the age level at which the child gets full credit for all items in a subdomain. Conclusions Studies generally developmentao the reliability of data obtained with the BDI and its content, construct, and concurrent validity.

If a child does not perform well or refuses to perform activities during the structured administration format, the examiner may ask the child’s parents or teachers whether the child can perform certain tasks.

Validity refers to the degree to which a meaningful interpretation can be inferred from a test.

Concurrent validity of the Battelle Developmental Inventory: Examiners should be cautious when testing young children who are close to the age cutoff levels to avoid invenory eligibility and intervention decisions. Citing articles via Google Scholar. The developers of the BDI determined test-retest reliability by retesting children of the children in the sample within 4 weeks of the initial test.

Battelle Developmental Inventory™, Second Edition Normative Update

Each of the domains is further divided into subdomains, which can be scored separately. Guidubaldi and Perry 17 investigated the predictive validity of the BDI with kindergarten children who they retested in the first grade using the WRAT. The low correlation between the 2 tests suggests that they measure different elements of development. Battelle Developmental Inventory Screening Test. Its predictive validity is better for older children than for younger children.


You have entered an invalid code. The ceiling is the level of item difficulty at which a child would get a score of 0. 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.

Concept, research design, and writing were provided by Berls and McEwen. The standardizing process of the BDI consisted of testing a norming sample of children, with approximately children 50 male and 50 female at each 1-year age level from birth to 8 years.

Newborg et al 5 explained that they selected the items from a pool of 4, items from other developmental tests. Predictive validity of the Battelle Develop-mental Inventory as a measure of social-behavioral development for young children with disabilities.

Battelle Developmental Inventory, Second Edition (BDI-2)

This aspect of the BDI is useful if different team members evaluate different battlle of development. Newborg et al 5 examined interrater reliability by having a second rater score the tests of children. You must accept the terms and conditions. BDI-2 NU is an early childhood assessment that tests 5 global developmental domains and 13 subdomains, determining their strengths and needs in personal-social, adaptive, motor, communication, and cognitive skill sets.

Another problem is that the reliability and validity of this item version of the BDI cannot be assumed. This system of scoring allows examiners to determine whether children display emerging skills on which they can build.

Based on the results of their study, the authors recommended that people who administer the BDI receive training in administration and scoring of the test.

A score of 0 is given when devflopmental response is incorrect or there is no response or opportunity to respond. Close mobile search navigation Article navigation. Factorial validity was described by Newborg et al 5 as a type of construct validity.

The BDI has 3 administration formats: I agree to the terms and conditions. Test-retest reliability of BDI total scores was between. The sample consisted of 50 children each in the 0-to 5- 6-totoand to month-old age ranges and children developemntal the to month-old range, for a total of children in the 0-to month-old range. In addition to covering the 5 areas of development listed in the law, an advantage of the BDI is that it covers an age range from birth to 8 years, which developmetnal a wider range than that of many other tests that can be used with infants.


It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. These correlations for the total communication score and the expressive communication subdomain score support using the BDI for testing children who have general speech and language problems.

Five item books—one for each domain—allow for flexible administration. Subdomains are specific skill areas that make up a domain, such as the locomotor subdomain of the motor domain.

A score of 2 indicates inventorh child’s response meets devwlopmental specified criteria. The items are scored on a 3-point system.

Little research has been conducted with the BDIST, but the work that has been done suggests that its use results in over-referral of children for further testing.

Concurrent and predictive validity of the Battelle Development Inventory at the battekle grade level. These correlations were not as consistently high as those found by McLean et al, 11 whose sample consisted of children with disabilities under the age of 30 months. Responses are grouped into categories to track growth: Designed for use by a bilingual examiner or an English-speaking examiner and a Spanish-speaking colleague, the assessment marks the mastery of critical skills or behaviors of typically developing children.

Validity Validity refers to the degree to which a meaningful interpretation bvi be inferred from a test. 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.

Depending on the extent to which the examiner uses one format or another, the results could differ. The lower correlation between the total BDI scores and the muscle control subdomain was attributed to an item ceiling, in which all children received the highest possible score for all items at 18 months of age, which restricted the size of the correlation.

Discovery of developmental Delays.

Data obtained through parent report, for example, are not always consistent with results from standardized administration.

They also found the BDIST time-consuming to administer, but they did not report mean times of administration.
