The children of 5 and 6 years of age who are slow in development are easily identified even though the test is not completely reliable in classification at this age. Table XV shows the scoring at 3-6 years in this test. Scoring 1 point for each item named : 1 point for each item indicated: \ \ \ \ point for those named on the examiner point for those named on himself point for those indicated on the examiner point for those indicated on himself. 61 TABLE XV Recording sheet and standardization The head, arms and legs are pointed to and named as an introduction to the test.

We have standardized the intermediate levels of success on these items, but the fact that some 5- and 6-year olds could do them properly might be a valuable indication, so we have kept them in the test for the 5- and 6-year olds. * * This series of tests is in the Appendix. 29 TABLE VII Complex gestures : Percentages of success as a function of age 1 Item 3 yrs. 2 1 2 1 4 yrs. 5 yrs. 6 yrs. 7 yrs. 8 yrs. 73 98 100 100 100 100 63 85 100 100 100 100 63 82 91 98 96 98 13 51 70 90 89 93 10 44 70 91 96 100 30 67 80 91 — — 36 67 77 91 — — 3 21 50 65 72 72 3 17 50 73 78 87 0 11 50 66 89 100 13 63 82 91 87 96 12 10 43 73 85 90 96 13 3 10 32 47 48 65 0 3 17 38 43 57 0 0 9 8 20 33 0 0 7 26 31 40 1 2 3 4 V V 5 ό 6 7 8 ό u u 9 10 11 14 15 1 16 GD (ZZI ίΖ ZI 8 30 1 TABLE VIII Tabulation of data for Part 2: Order of difficulty of the items Test Item No.

7. Interference of superfluous movements (torsion of the entire body). — 8. Persistence in positioning: the positions required for the previous items are repeated. — There are no non-mirror responses. We have seen other efforts to search for the best way to facilitate movements, 40 but without success. The child stands in a profile position but extends both arms straight forward. At 4 years. 6 per cent of the responses are non-mirror images. At 5 years. 20 per cent of the responses are non-mirror images.
