Hi,

I am working with children's datasets in several Asian and African countries, and came across the following variables:

(1) child can identify or name at least 10 letters of alphabet, (2) child can read at least four words, (3) child can identify or name at least 10 numbers, (4) child can pick up small object with two fingers, (5) child follows simple directions, (6) child can perform task independently, (7) child gets along well with other children or adults, and (8) child does not get distracted easily.

I'd like to know what indicator these variables are reflecting to, and whether this a standardized measure as I couldn't find any paper that used similar variables.

Thank you.

Ghose
