Asperger Syndrome Diagnostic Scale [ASDS]

OUR PRICE:-B9350-$157.00

Ages: 5 through 18
Testing Time: 10 to 15 minutes
Administration: Individual

The Asperger Syndrome Diagnostic Scale (ASDS) is a quick, easy-to-use rating scale that can help you determine whether a child has Asperger Syndrome. Anyone who knows the child or youth well can complete this scale. Parents, teachers, siblings, paraeducators, speech language pathologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and other professionals can answer the 50 yes/no items in 10 to 15 minutes.

Designed to identify Asperger Syndrome in children ages 5 through 18, this instrument provides an AS Quotient that reveals the likelihood that an individual has Asperger Syndrome. The 50 items that constitute the ASDS were drawn from five specific areas of behavior: cognitive, maladaptive, language, social, and sensorimotor.

Diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome is difficult because the characteristics of the disorder often resemble those of autism, behavior disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and learning disabilities. The ASDS serves an important function by quickly allowing you to determine whether a child or adolescent is likely to have Asperger Syndrome.

The first test of its kind, the ASDS was normed on 115 persons with Asperger Syndrome, autism, learning disabilities, behavior disorders, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder from across the United States. The sample ranged in age from 5 to 18. The ASDS meets reliability and validity criteria established by the professional assessment community.

Therefore, by comparing an individual¹s score with the normative sample, an examiner can establish the probability that the individual has Asperger Syndrome. Low AS Quotients are indicative of persons with little or no known pathology, whereas higher scores are increasingly more indicative of Asperger Syndrome.

All items included in the ASDS represent behaviors that are symptomatic of Asperger Syndrome, and all are summed to produce the total score. The scores from the five subtests present the examiner with information of clinical interest regarding an individual's performance in comparison to that of others with Asperger Syndrome. The total score has strong diagnostic value in identifying individuals with Asperger Syndrome and is the only score to be used when determining the likelihood of Asperger Syndrome. This contributes greatly to ease of administration and cuts down on otherwise time-consuming testing procedures.
The ASDS can be used with confidence to (a) identify persons who have Asperger Syndrome, (b) document behavioral progress as a consequence of special intervention programs, (c) target goals for change and intervention on the student's Individualized Education Program (IEP), and (d) measure Asperger Syndrome for research purposes. Because the ASDS is based on observations, the test results are valid only when the rater knows the examinee well; that is, the examiner has had regular, sustained contact with the examinee for at least 2 weeks.

Raw scores are converted to percentile and standard scores. These scores are the most important information associated with an individual's ASDS performance, and analysis of them, augmented by additional test information, direct information of behavior, and knowledge acquired from other sources, will result in proper diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome.

Young Children's Achievement Test (YCAT)

Hresko, Pamela Peak, Shelley Herron, Deanna Bridges

OUR PRICE-$310.00

Ages: 4-0 through 7-11
Testing Time: 25 to 45 minutes
Administration: Individual

The Young Children’s Achievement Test (YCAT) represents a major improvement in the early identification of children at risk for school failure. It yields an overall Early Achieve-ment standard score, and individual subtest standard scores for General Information, Reading, Writing, Mathematics, and Spoken Language. The YCAT was designed with both the child and the examiner in mind. The individual subtests for General Information, Reading, Writing, Mathematics and Spoken Language can be given independent of each other, leading to flexible testing sessions. Standard scores (with a mean of 100 and a standard deviations of 15), percentiles, and age equivalents are provided for both the subtests and the composite.

The YCAT was normed on 1,224 children representing 32 states and the District of Columbia. The information is clearly representative of the U.S. population as reported in the 1997 Statistical Abstract of the United States. Reliability was standardized using the coefficient alpha, test-retest, and interscorer procedures. Extensive evidence of the validity of YCAT test scores is proved for content-description validity, criterion-prediction validity, and construct-identification validity.

YCAT items were examined to ensure that little or no bias relative to gender, disability, race, socioeconomic level, or ethnic group existed. Differential item functioning techniques were used to examine items for potential bias. The PHAI comes complete with Examiner's Manual, Picture Book, 25 Student Response Forms, and 25 Profile/Examiner Record Booklets.

YCAT-Complete Kit includes:
Examiner’s Manual, Picture Book, 25 Student Response Forms, and 25 Profile Examiner Record Booklets, all in a sturdy storage box - 2000. (B4000) $310.00

Diagnostic Achievement Battery, Fourth Edition [DAB-4]

E-mail Print PDF

AVAILABLE NOW!  our price $484.00

Ages: 6 through 14
Testing Time: 90 to 120 minutes
Administration: Individual

The DAB-4 is a revision of one of the most popular individual achievement tests available. Its 8 subtests identify students’ strengths and weaknesses across important areas of school achievement. A supplemental manual shows how to probe student responses to obtain information about students’ thinking processes and problem-solving strategies.

New Features of the DAB-4

  • All-new normative data were collected from 2011 to 2013.
  • The demographically representative normative sample (n = 1,310) was stratified by age relative to region, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic factors, and other critical variables.
  • Test items were subjected to differential item analyses to find and eliminate potentially biased items.
  • Subtests were reduced from 14 to 8 in order to streamline administration time and provide more useful, accurate results.

Subtests of the DAB-4

  • Listening Comprehension
  • Synonyms
  • Alphabet/Phonics/Word Identification
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Punctuation/Capitalization*
  • Spelling*
  • Mathematics Reasoning
  • Mathematics Calculation*

*can be administered individually or in small groups

Scores from these subtests can be combined to form five composites:

  • Spoken Language
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Total Basic Academic Skills

Standard scores (M=10, SD=3 for the subtests and M=100, SD=15 for the composites), percentile ranks, and age/grade equivalents are provided.

Reliability and Validity

Internal consistency (content sampling) reliability coefficients for all of the composites range from .89 to .97. The test-retest (time sampling) coefficient for the Total Basic Academic Skill composite is .94. Correlations of the DAB-4 composite scores with those of other well-known academic achievement measures range from .56 to .76. Diagnostic accuracy studies indicate that the DAB-4 is able to accurately identify students with poor academic achievement and students with a prior learning disability diagnosis (i.e., median sensitivity = .85, median specificity = .95, median ROC/AUC = .98). Considerable other validity evidence is provided in the manual.

Uses for the DAB-4

The DAB-4 has four primary uses. It can be used to (1) identify students who are significantly below their peers in basic academic skills, (2) determine the particular kinds of component strengths and weaknesses that individual students possess, (3) document students’ progress in specific areas as a consequence of special intervention programs, and (4) conduct research studies of academic achievement.
