    Yes, it is important that all enumerators are delivering the items to children in the same way to achieve standardization and ultimately, reliable data. Enumerators should memorize items for smooth delivery of assessment when assessing with young children.

    Yes, and you should. It is very important that you pay careful attention to the instructions, and read all questions to children exactly as they appear. Throughout the guide you will see two forms of type or font. Bold type in boxes indicates things the assessor must say to the child out loud. Please read this type aloud to the child completely and exactly as it appears. This is important to ensure that the data will be collected in a standardized manner across all children.

    Italic type indicates instructions for the assessor. Do not read these instructions aloud to the child. You should follow these instructions exactly as they are written.
