The checklists consist of 30 items, positive and negative, to be filled in by the teacher. It covers eight areas, each representing a deficit in a particular ability, and gives us insight into the mental make-up, attempting to explain the reason for the child’s under-achievement. It has been standardized on 1000 children from ages 8-11 years. 300 teachers also constituted the sample.
