Means and Standard Deviations for the Counting Span, False Belief Control Questions, False Belief Composite, and TELD
Of particular interest are the correlations of the counting span and TELD scores with false belief.

Raw scores, as well as quotient scores, are presented for the TERA and TELD because a number of students had raw scores on these pretests and posttests that were below the tabled quotient scores for the measures.
These consisted of the pretest McCarthy GCI as a predictor of posttest PPVT-R standard score and TELD language quotient, and the pretest PPVT-R raw score as a predictor of the McCarthy Verbal subtest.
Note: McCarthy = McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities (McCarthy, 1972); GCI = General Cognitive Index, a McCarthy subtest; PPVT-R = Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test--Revised (Dunn & Dunn, 1981); TELD = Test of Early Language Development (Hvesko, Reid, & Hammill, 1981); TERA = Test of Early Reading Ability (Reid, Hresko, & Hamill, 1981).
Not only do all raw scores increase substantially, but many of the standard scores (for PPVT-R, TELD
, and TEMA), which are uncorrelated with age, also increase, reflecting growth at a higher rate than during the period preceding entry into these programs.
