Easily monitor individual progress toward common early learning standards or foundations and plan developmentally appropriate, individualised Instruction. The comprehensive, user-friendly BRIGANCE Inventory of Early Development III provides teachers with a flexible, valid and reliable ongoing assessment of school-readiness skills.
The IED III Criterion-referenced assessment measures a student's performance based on mastery of a specific set of skills. It measures what the student knows and doesn't know at the time of assessment. The student’s performance is NOT compared to other student's performance on the same assessment.
The Brigance Inventory of Early Development (IED III) has more than 100 assessments that cover a broad sampling of student's skills and behaviours in key academic and developmental domains.
Age ranges are determined by developmental age, meaning the IED III can be used with any student – regardless of chronological age – who functions at a level from birth through to the developmental age of seven.
Using the criterion-referenced assessments for ongoing assessment throughout the academic year allows a comparison of a student's current skill mastery to their skill mastery at previous points in the year. Due to skill sequences being broken down into gradual steps along the skill continuum, progress can be measured in very small increments.

The BRIGANCE® Inventory of Early Development III, or IED III, is a comprehensive collection of valid, reliable and well-researched developmental assessments for children from birth to seven years of age. The IED III produces a complete range of information on a child’s developmental progress through distinct developmental skill sequences performed in authentic, everyday conditions.
The assessments in the IED III allow teachers to pinpoint individual areas of strength and need. Teachers can then identify a sequence of instructional objectives for planning developmentally appropriate instruction, individualising ongoing assessment and monitoring progress. Assessment items in the IED III cover a broad sampling of a child’s skills and behaviours. Key developmental areas are aligned to common early learning standards.
Assessments cover the following domains:
The IED III is a criterion-referenced measure designed to measure a child’s performance compared to specific educational objectives. Criterion-referenced tools provide data on what a child knows in relation to certain specified skills.
Key developmental assessments in the IED III have been standardised and validated for children from birth to seven years of age and appear in the IED III Standardised. If you wish to derive standard scores, percentiles and age equivalents, see the norm-referenced IED III Standardised and its accompanying Standardised Record Book.
