Score reporting
and test design data
Most of the subtests provide an expected criterion level, but normative data is also provided to compare students who take this test against a representative normative sample. Raw scores can be converted to percentile ranks and age-equivalent scores. Reliability and validity data was collected in 2003 on a sizeable, representative, nation-wide sample of students. Reliability and validity data is provided in the IED-II Standardization and Validation Manual.
Notes In addition to the assessments listed above, this assessment collection contains a variety of motor-skill assessments, school readiness assessments, and basic math assessments. It also contains multiple vocabulary and comprehension assessments, including picture vocabulary, color identification, shape identification, following directions, sentence memory, picture classification, and world knowledge.
