The Battelle® Developmental Inventory, Third Edition™ is proud to present the Battelle Early Academic Survey (BEAS), a new academic solution for those wanting to assess literacy and mathematics skills for children ages 3 years 6 months to 7 years 11 months. The BEAS contains items targeting early foundational skills in Literacy and Mathematics.
What truly sets the BEAS apart? There's no need to wait until age 5 as required by most other early childhood academic assessments.

The five literacy sub-domains and the four mathematics sub-domains in BEAS are all key indicators of how the child will do when he or she first enters school. Because the BEAS can be administered to children through 7 years, 11 months, it will also help to monitor these skills as the child continues their path towards early academic success.
The BEAS probe begins with basic print concept skills such as: “Is the child reading right to left?”, and “Does the examinee read at an appropriate pace?”. These are all examples of skills a child needs to understand and master before they can move onto becoming a fluent reader.
Do early learners need Geometry skills? Absolutely! The foundational skills of shapes, and recognition of these shapes, must be mastered first, and at an early age. The BEAS provides this starting as early as 3 years, 6 months.
Examiners will be delighted at how quick and easy the BEAS is to administer. An easy to read BEAS Table of Scores Report will not only include multiple scores such as Standard Scores and Percentile Ranks, but also a visual chart which quickly lets the examiner determine if the child is in need of immediate support, should be monitored, or is on track.
