Early Years Toolbox

The Early Years Toolbox (EYT) is a collection of freely accessible measures of young children’s emerging cognitive, self-regulatory, language and social development. Each measure is a brief, engaging, game-like assessment that has been developed for the iPad.

About the Toolbox

The EYT was developed as an advance over existing measures to capture abilities that research has shown to be most predictive of later academic, social, emotional, cognitive and life outcomes.

  • Developmentally appropriate for young children.

  • Brief to Administer (<5 minutes per task)
  • Engaging, valid and reliable for use with young children.
  • Technologically dynamic
  • Expected internationally applicability

Using the Toolbox

While we have made these apps easily and freely accessible, we do recommend that all data collectors be trained in their use. This includes understanding how to support a child to give their best possible performance (without over-helping), knowing how to access and analyse the data generated, and knowing how to interpret these results.
