As children age, they typically attain critical skills and behaviours sequentially, from simple to complex. Assessment of developmental strengths and needs during this time is critical for early development centres, private clinicians, schools, and others seeking to determine the need for educational resources or interventions and build plans accordingly.

The Battelle® Developmental Inventory, Third Edition™ (BDI-3) measures mastery of developmental milestones in the following global domains:

  • Communication
  • Social-emotional
  • Adaptive
  • Motor
  • Cognitive

In addition to the domains above, BDI-3 has added the all-new Battelle Early Academic Survey, with two domains specifically designed to measure foundational literacy and mathematics skills in children ages 3 years 6 months to 7 years 11 months.

Comprehensive. Flexible. Defensible.

The Battelle Developmental Inventory, Third Edition is the only assessment that measures global domains from birth to 7 years, 11 months. Providing examiners with a complete assessment, a screening assessment, and an early academic survey, it is by far the most holistic assessment on the market for early childhood assessment.

BDI-3 is used across the country -- and exclusively in 16 states -- to:

  • Assess developmental milestones for school readiness
  • Help determine eligibility for special education services
  • Assist in the development of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)

Child-friendly items, tester-friendly administration.

BDI-3 items are child-friendly and easy to administer, with clear and efficient item-scoring criteria. Based on the multifaceted information from structured, observational, and interview items, BDI-3 can be used by an individual or team of professionals to create a comprehensive picture of a child's skills.

Examiners can choose to administer just one domain, all domains, or any combination as needed, and can begin with any domain of the examiner's choice. "Scripting" helps ensure administration consistency, and it also allows the examiner flexibility to query where necessary to ensure sufficient information is gathered.

The BDI-3 Developmental Screening Test

BDI-3 Developmental Screening Test allows you to quickly screen and evaluate early childhood developmental milestones to help identify children at risk for developmental delays or disabilities.

Requiring no more than 30 minutes for a full administration, the BDI-3 Screening Test consists of a subset of test items from each BDI-3 Developmental Complete domain, and incorporates the same versatile administration formats of the full assessment.

  • Quickly screen for school readiness
  • Rapid evaluation to help clear your testing backlog
  • Easily determine a cut-score to identify candidates for further testing

The Battelle Early Academic Survey (BEAS)

A New Way to Assess Early Academic Skills

The Battelle Early Academic Survey (BEAS) is a new academic solution for assessing literacy and mathematics skills in children ages 3 years 6 months to 7 years 11 months. The BEAS contains items targeting early foundational skills in Literacy and Mathematics.

What truly sets the BEAS apart? There's no need to wait until age 5 as required by most other early childhood academic assessments.
