A sample of at-risk children age 3 years, 0 months to 5 years, 11 months was obtained through Bowling Green, Kentucky Head Start Programs and the University of Louisville Child Evaluation Center. At-risk was determined by a child having a developmental delay as measured on the Denver Developmental Screening Test. The 60 children who met the criteria for at-risk were then administered the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC). Data were analyzed by correlating subtest scores with total scale scores, resulting in an indicator of internal consistency which provides partial evidence of a test’s construct validity. For both the Mental Processing Scale and the Achievement Scale, evidence of construct validity was found with this sample. Findings were consistent with prepublication researcher on the K-ABC.
