Target Construct Literacy: Letter knowledge Numeracy : Counting, comparison and shapes. Social emotional: Self and social awareness.
Description There are 300 concepts in eleven conceptual domains: Colours, Letters, Numbers-Counting, Sizes, Comparisons, Shapes, Direction-Position, Self-Social Awareness, Texture-material, Quantity, and Time-Sequence. Caution: the national panels cautioned content validity was low (including mathematically questionable items such as one-dimensional ‘linear shapes’). Further, because Bracken subtests are not intended to be used separately, it can be difficult to administer or interpret results for mathematical topics.
