The BRIGANCE® Inventory of Early Development III, or IED III, is a comprehensive collection of valid, reliable and well-researched developmental assessments for students from birth to the developmental age of seven.
The IED III offers a complete range of information on a student's developmental skill levels as demonstrated under real-life everyday conditions. Because skills within assessments are developmentally sequenced from the easiest items (earliest mastered skills) to more difficult ones, a student's present level of performance can be pinpointed along the skill continuum.
Teachers can accurately identify a student's specific areas of strength and need and then determine a sequence of instructional objectives for planning developmentally appropriate instruction, writing IEPs, and individualising ongoing assessment and progress monitoring.
The developmental sequence of items in IED III also allows educators to monitor students with potential developmental or learning delays, advanced development or other exceptionalities, making the IED III Special Education Edition an appropriate assessment measure for programs serving students with special needs.
The IED III Special Education Edition helps special education teachers and administrators:
