Average learning and development scores in IDELA domains
On average, children scored 18% correct on the IDELA assessment.
Distribution of Total IDELA scores
Overall scores were very low, with the most common category 0-10%. However, there was a very high non-response rate which may have negatively impacted results.
Distribution of children’s ages
Most children in the sample were four years old.
Average IDELA scores by child’s age
The correlation between age and IDELA score was weaker than in many datasets. Only Motor and Overall IDELA were significantly related to age. On average, one additional year of age was associated with an additional seven percentage points correct in overall IDELA score.

57% of children in the sample were female.
