What comparative data will it yield?

The direct assessment of children will yield data on the following domains at the start and the end of the year.

    • Early reading

    • Early mathematics

    • Short term memory

    • Physical development

    • Personal, social and emotional development

Each of these domains will be related to age, home background, first language and pre-school experience. This will allow each country's data to be reported in a contextualised fashion.
