Dd was recently screened for kindergarten and we received her scores on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test and the Bracken Basic Concept Scale. They gave us the "typical" range (85-115), but they didn't explain the scores any further. A google search has not helped me to interpret her results either. Does anyone have knowledge of these tests so that I could better understand where my daughter is at right now? She scored a 116 on the Peabody and 118 on the Bracken.
I am interested because we tried to get her admitted to kinder early, but it was absolutely forbidden based on her birthday (January). Now that she's been screened and placed in a split K/1 classroom, I found out that the teacher is perfectly willing to give her first grade work if that's where she is at. So I asked her if that is the case if she would recommend kids to skip kinder or (after a year of doing first grade work) skip first grade and she said she would absolutely recommend skipping if she felt it was appropriate. So, I guess I'd just like to know what my dd's scores mean at this point.
