Outcome Description of Measure Data Collection Method Properties of the Outcome Measure Outcome Type
Denver Developmental Screening Test-II (DDST-II) Number of children whose scores indicated abnormal development on the DDST-II. DDST-II is designed to measure developmental skill attainment for children from birth to age 6. DDST-II provides overall ratings of normal, borderline, or abnormal development, with abnormal defined as having two or more areas considered borderline or abnormal. Parent/caregiver report Interrater reliability = 90%; test-retest reliability = 0.75; Primary
Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Third Edition (WPPSI-III), Full Scale IQ Mean full scale IQ score on the WPPSI-III. WPPSI-III includes tasks of language, nonverbal reasoning, concept development, and fine motor skills. Child assessment Test-retest reliability ranges from 0.86 to 0.92; internal consistency ranges from 0.89 to 0.97 Primary
Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Third Edition (WPPSI-III), Language Score Mean language score on the WPPSI-III. WPPSI-III includes tasks of language, nonverbal reasoning, concept development, and fine motor skills. Child assessment Test-retest reliability ranges from 0.86 to 0.92; internal consistency ranges from 0.89 to 0.97 Primary
Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Third Edition (WPPSI-III), Performance Score Mean performance score on the WPPSI-III. WPPSI-III includes tasks of language, nonverbal reasoning, concept development, and fine motor skills. Child assessment Test-retest reliability ranges from 0.86 to 0.92; internal consistency ranges from 0.89 to 0.97 Primary
Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Third Edition (WPPSI-III), Verbal Score Mean verbal score on the WPPSI-III. WPPSI-III includes tasks of language, nonverbal reasoning, concept development, and fine motor skills. Child assessment Test-retest reliability ranges from 0.86 to 0.92; internal consistency ranges from 0.89 to 0.97 Primary
