The Early Years Toolbox (EYT) Preschool Situational Self-Regulation Toolkit (PRSIST) Assessment assesses young children’s cognitive and behavioral self-regulation, through observer ratings of children as they engage in authentic, semi-structured activities. Specifically, in one group activity (e.g., memory card game in a group of four) and one individual activity (e.g., curiosity boxes guessing game), an adult facilitating the activity rates aspects of each child's cognitive self-regulation (e.g., sustaining attention, remaining engaged) and their behavioural self-regulation (e.g., resisting impulses, remaining within the rules of the activity). Each rating consists of 8 items, which are explained and described to guide ratings. Free online training in using this tool is available at www.prsist.com.au/assessment.html. This site also provides a full description of PRSIST activities. This assessment takes an average of 8 minutes to complete per child.
Scores are presented on the final assessment screen. For more information on PRSIST, visit www.prsist.com.au. For more information on the Early Years Toolbox, see http://www.eytoolbox.com.au
About the Early Years Toolbox:
The 'Early Years Toolbox' (EYT, for short) is comprised of brief, engaging game-like assessments of children’s self-regulation, executive functioning and vocabulary. These assessments are based on well-established and widely used measures, yet have been adapted and optimised on the basis of 20+ years of research experience working with young children.
