Product Details

ESI™-3 is a revision of the successful ESI™-R, a popular developmental screening instrument designed to be individually administered to children ages 3:0–5:11. It identifies children who may need special education services in order to perform successfully in school.

The advantages of parent involvement.

The ESI-3 now includes a questionnaire to capture the primary caregivers' perceptions of the child's development. Adapted from the ESI-R Parent Questionnaire, the ESI-3 Parent Questionnaire has added new items that reflect current research in social-emotional development and adaptive behaviors (e.g., interactions with adults and peers, social communication, and self-help skills).

Scoring & Reporting

ESI-3 is available on Q-global®, Pearson's web-based administration, scoring, and reporting system. It enables you to quickly assess and efficiently organize examinee information, generate scores, and produce accurate, comprehensive reports anywhere, anytime, on any Internet-connected device.

Score Report: Online-generated report which includes research-based parent-child activities.

Parent Questionnaire Report: Details responses to the parent questionnaire, a qualitative questionnaire to capture the primary caregivers' perceptions of the child's development.

Manual Entry: Option to use paper forms to administer the questionnaires, and the Q-global platform to score and generate reports.
