Bracken Testing

Long time, no entry… but here is something noteworthy.

Corwin, while enrolled at the daycare I work for, took the Bracken School Readiness Assessment. I could almost compare it to the earliest form of IQ test for kids. It is commonly used in conjunction with other tests to determine school readiness (duh) and placement in programs geared towards gifted children. The areas of focus are letters and numbers, colors, counting, sizes, comparisons, and shapes. The results are scored as a percentile.

First of all, on average children who regularly go to Primrose score higher on the test. This is to be expected considering our curriculum. Corwin had been going for 2 weeks. And was bored to tears… but as you can imagine, all this stuff is stuff we go over on a regular basis and he has mastered and moved on from. He can easily count to 100, 200 with help. He can name every single planet in order as well as their most prominent moons. He can name dinosaur species, tell them apart, their eating habits, and usually what period they were from. Numbers and shapes are nothing for this kid ;).

Out of every Primrose in the state of Texas, Corwin was in the highest scoring group…. the 98th percentile.

98TH PERCENTILE! That means he scored into 2nd grade. He is FOUR YEARS OLD.

That’s right. My son is amazing :).

  1. I think it is absolutely amazing that at 4 years 3 months old, Corwin scored higher than the average 6 year 4 month-6 year 9month old primrose student (which was the highest age group on the chart I stumbled upon) by 5%. I’m not surprised by the result, though. It is very nice to have confirmation that my assumptions about his intelligence level are correct. Go Corwin!!!

  2. Wow, that’s pretty fucking impressive, hon.

    Dont’ get too excited, it seems everyone at Primrose scores between 90-100%.
