Summary

Two versions of the Assessing the Behavior of Caregivers (ABC-I, ABC-II) Rating Checklist were developed. These instruments were designed to assess infant environments by studying actual ongoing behaviors, as opposed to idealized stated objectives of programs or psychometric criterion scores of the infants. The checklists were created to (1) be brief, economical instruments, easy to apply in the classroom, with high interobserver reliability; (2) provide a means of assessing whether an infant program actually provides the inputs which have been articulated as specific program goals; and (3) provide a means of reliably monitoring infant programs, thereby insuring the maintenance of quality day care. ABC-I, a 40-item checklist, focuses on behavioral areas which reflect educational goals for infants under 18 months. ABC-II, designed for use with infants from 18 to 36 months, has 44 items representing age-appropriate developmental goals. Interobserver reliability is reported to be 84% and 88% for the two checklists based on a total of 34 hours of observation. Studies are listed which have used the instruments. (DP)
