The BBCS–4:R is a developmental assessment used to assess children’s school readiness skills in terms of their comprehension of basic concepts used in daily classroom conversations, teacher directions, and school curricula. Concept knowledge is a powerful predictor of language development, cognitive functioning, and school readiness. Clinical and research information provided by the BBCS–4:R is especially important for school, child, developmental, and clinical psychologists who assess developmental delays and many other early childhood disabilities (e.g., autism, selective mutism, hearing impairments) in young children, as well as for educators seeking to determine a child's school readiness. Test results are compared to national norms.
BBCS–4:R aids in:
Scoring and Reporting
Automated scoring and reporting
When using Q-interactive via two Bluetooth®-connected iPad®s, examinee responses are recorded and scored on the examiner’s iPad. BBCS–4:R automatically calculates the child’s School Readiness Composite standard score (SRC), School Readiness Subtests (SRS) scaled score, remaining subtest scaled scores, percentile ranks, concept age equivalents, normal curve equivalents, and growth scale values.
When the BBCS–4:R is administered using print or Q-global digital assets, examiners may manually score or use Q-global to enter subtest item scores or subtest raw scores. Q-global will quickly and accurately generate a report with the child’s School Readiness Composite standard score (SRC), School Readiness Subtests (SRS) scale score, remaining subtest scaled scores, percentile ranks, concept age equivalents, normal curve equivalents, and growth scale values. Q-global also enables examiners to maintain and print test records, create graphical and summary reports, and provide evidence-based techniques for teaching concepts.
