1 The BRIGANCE ® Screens-II City/State Date

2 L. Armourwww.CurriculumAssociates.com Why Screen Children? To identify any child who should be referred for a more comprehensive evaluation to determine the existence of a giftedness or disability and the need for special placement. To help determine the most appropriate initial placement or grouping of children. To assist the teacher in planning a more appropriate program for the child. To comply with mandated screening requirements.

3 L. Armourwww.CurriculumAssociates.com Developmental Screening Screening is a brief…procedure designed to quickly evaluate a large number of children to determine who should be referred for further assessment. Screening is not an end in itself. Screening instruments are early alert systems that can help to focus assessment and observation. Eligibility, intervention, and delayed entry into kindergarten decisions should not be made solely from screening results.

Armourwww.CurriculumAssociates.com Highlights of the BRIGANCE ® Screens-II Quick Sampling of Skills in Key Areas (10-15 min) Wide Range of Scores-raw scores, age equivalents, percentiles, quotients Reliable, Accurate, Valid Easy to interpret (staff and parents) No special training needed-simplified procedures enhance reliability Social-Emotional/Self Help Scales Additional resources include teacher and parent forms Full color pictures

Compute the chronological age. Administer the screen in 15 minutes. Score the Data Sheet. We will discuss the meaning of scores later.

31 L. Armourwww.CurriculumAssociates.com Cutoff Scores Find the childs chronological age. Look first at the cutoff for possible disabilities or delays. If the child scored well above those cutoffs, look to the cutoffs for giftedness. Remember that scores below cutoffs do not necessarily mean there are disabilities. You may want to begin instruction and re-screen.
