Measuring Oral Narrative and Theater Arts Skills of Preschool Children

This project aims to determine whether two new tools that we developed with the Children’s Theatre Company – the Preschool Theatre Arts Rubric and the Preschool Storytelling Rubric – are psychometrically sound.

Psychometrically sound measures can be used by theatre arts programs, early childhood teachers, and researchers to explore the potential impact of early childhood theatre arts programming on young children’s school readiness.
