The Bracken Basic Concept Scale – Third Edition: Receptive (BBCS-3:R) and Bracken Basic Concept Scale: Expressive (BBCS:E) are developmentally sensitive measures of children’s basic concept knowledge.

  • Easily administer, score and interpret
  • Assess important educational concepts – Colour, letter/sounds, numbers/counting, size, shapes, direction/position,
