We will play an alphabet game now. I will point to letters and I want you to tell me what letters they are. It's OK if you don't know all of them, just do your best.
Show the child a copy of the letter chart. Using another sheet of paper cover all rows of the table except Row 1 so that it doesn't distract the children. Point to the first letter in the first row, and ask the child.
17-A. What letter is this?
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
1 stands for "correct response" and signifies that the child demonstrated the skill being assessed.
0 stands for "incorect response". That is 0 means the child does not have or did not demonstrate the skill being assessed.
999 stands for "refused to respond". Refused answer is only to be used when a child literally refused to respond to a question.
