Analysis of the e-TEN Calibration Data

The present report summarizes the analyses of the calibration data for the electronic Test of Early Numeracy (e-TEN), an adaptive, iPad-based test of early numeracy achievement. A total of 794 children age 3 years to 8 years-11months from two states were tested.Items were designed to map ontoseven theoretical domains: verbal counting, numbering, numerical relations, numeral literacy, single-digit calculation, multi-digit calculation and base-ten place-value. Analysis indicated a strong single factor—aunidimensional structure across all domains.A Wright map of calibrated item difficultyindicated that items were fairly evenly distributed along the entire continuumof the early numeracy.
