    • EXHIBIT 1 ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA FOR LICENSED ADAPTATIONS & TEST REVIEW SPECIFICATIONS Acceptance Criteria for Licensed Adaptations General. The process of adapting the Test must follow generally accepted procedures for test development as outlined by a relevant professional organization such as APA, AERA, British Psychological Society, COTAN, or other locally appropriate source. Subtests and Scores. The adapted edition must include all of the same subtests and index scores as the original edition, use the same score metric, and each subtest and index must be scored using the same methods as the original edition. Item Development. Local Publisher must provide evidence that culturally inappropriate items were identified and replaced with items of similar difficulty measuring the same construct. Representativeness. Evidence of the representativeness of the norming sample must be provided as compared to the most reliable country level population statistics available, and presented separately for each normative group. Representativeness must be demonstrated for key demographic variables known to account for significant variance in the test scores. (For cognitive tests, these key variables include education level or socio-economic status, region of the country, age, and gender. In countries with mixed racial/ethnic populations, race/ethnicity and / or language status also must be representative.) The stratification plan must be reviewed and approved by Pearson prior to collecting the sample. Administration / Scoring. Local Publisher must provide evidence that examiners were appropriately qualified and / or trained to administer and score the Test, checks were conducted to verify data integrity, and any data anomalies were identified and corrected. Norms. Norms tables must have a unique scaled score for every raw score, must not contain developmentally inappropriate reversals across ages, and must show expected developmental patterns of increasing or decreasing scores across ages that are appropriate to the construct measured by the test, and must be smoothed to eliminate unnecessary bunching of scores. Ranges of scores (i.e., floor and ceiling) must be adequate for the intended uses of the Test. Reliability. Reliability coefficients must be presented for each group for which there are unique norms, and for every subtest and composite score available in the test. Reliability coefficients must achieve standards accepted in the field for the intended uses of the test, and use appropriate statistical formulas. The design of the reliability studies must have sufficient statistical power to find the obtained reliability coefficient significant. Factor Structure. If the manual for the original edition of the Test included a factor analysis, then the manual for the adapted test must include a confirmatory factor analysis which evaluates the fit of the best model presented in the original edition. Concurrent Validity. If a previous edition of the adapted test was locally available, data must be presented showing the correlations and score differences between composite scores on the two editions using a counter balanced design with sufficient statistical power to find the obtained correlation significant. If no previous edition exists, then data must be presented with the most commonly used test of its type in the region and show correlations and score differences between composite scores with the adapted test using a counterbalanced design with sufficient statistical power. WAB-R Publication and Distribution Agreement 24/28 Paradise Welfare Foundation CONTRACT IS HELD BY PEARSON AS A TRADE SECRET. DO NOT DISCLOSE.
    • Construct Validity. At least one study must be presented showing the expected score patterns for the most common use of the test. (For IQ tests, two studies must show means and standard deviations of scores in samples of developmentally disabled and intellectually superior subjects.) Each study must be based on a sample size that is the larger of 25 cases or 3% of the size of the norm sample. Cases for these studies must be identified independently of the adapted test and using a reliable procedure. Study results must show convincing evidence that the adapted test provides scores in the range expected for the target group(s). Materials. The test manual and materials must meet local standards for professional appearance. The test manual and materials must utilize the same trademark, logo, and design as used on the English version of the test, unless otherwise authorized in writing by Pearson. Test Review Specifications Introduction. There are three required reviews. The timing and minimum documentation for each review is described below. Documentation will be reviewed to ensure that The International Test Commission (ITC) guidelines (Hambleton, 1994; van de Vijver & Hambleton, 1996) have been followed as appropriate. Please refer to the ITC Test Adaptation Guidelines, below, for more information. First Review: Prior to collecting tryout and/or standardization data - • Translation / adaptation must be approved. o Minimum documentation includes the translated record form and instructions to examinee, accompanied by an independently created back-translation, qualifications of the translator, a written description of the steps followed in the translation process used. • Proposed data collection methods must be approved. o Minimum documentation includes examiner qualifications, methods for training examiners, methods for recruiting subjects, and method for ensuring quality of data collected. • Proposed stratification of sample must be approved. o Minimum documentation includes the proposed sample size of each stratification variable by age as compared to population targets. Please include a rationale for the stratification variables and age categories selected. Also include a description of the SES variable and rationale for how the SES variable is categorized. Typically, the SES variable is education or parent education level. In this case, include a brief description of how the school systems are organized (e.g., are there different types of schools for students planning to attend university versus those planning to learn a trade? Does the term “college” have the same meaning as “university”? Any other relevant issues.) Second Review: After collecting standardization data - • Stratification of final sample must be approved. o Minimum documentation includes tables showing the actual stratification of the final sample by age compared to the sampling plan previously approved. • For each subtest, show a table of raw score means and standard deviations by age. Internal consistency reliabilities (and methods used for computing reliabilities) by age (and any other norming variables) for each scale. Third Review: Before printing the manual - • Norms must be approved. WAB-R Publication and Distribution Agreement 25/28 Paradise Welfare Foundation CONTRACT IS HELD BY PEARSON AS A TRADE SECRET. DO NOT DISCLOSE.
    • o For each subscale and composite, include the following information for each age: Raw score mean, standard deviation, and skewness values. Also, the raw scores associated with the following percentiles: .02, .16, .50, .84, and .98. o Within age plot of norms for each subscale: For each scale, plot raw scores along the x - axis and scaled scores along the y - axis for each age on the same graph. o Across age plot of norms for each subscale: For each scale, plot age along the x – axis and raw scores along the y – axis for each scaled score on the same graph. o Composite norms plots. For each composite, plot sum of scaled scores along x – axis and IQ (or index) scores along the y – axis. o For each composite, report percent of cases in standardization sample in the following intervals: 69 and below; 70-79; 80-89; 90-109; 110-119; 120-129; 130 and above. • Validity of adaptation must be approved. o If any clinical samples were collected (e.g., gifted and talented, mentally retarded, developmentally delayed, learning disabled, etc) describe the sample and report sample size, mean, and standard deviation of each sample o If there is a previous normed version of the test in the same language, a counterbalanced study must be conducted. Describe the study in which participants were administered both versions and report the sample sizes, means, and standard deviations by order of administration and overall. Please include the date of publication of the previous version. - For Wechsler tests, concurrent studies are required with at least one other valid measure of intelligence. Report the sample size, and correlation, as well as the mean, standard deviation of each test. Please include a brief description of the other test and the date of publication. - Retest reliabilities for each scale - Intercorrelation tables by age and overall - Factor analysis results including description of method used. General Notes: Allow 2 to 3 weeks for each review. Provide translation of all table headings in English ITC Test Adaptation Guidelines Context C.1 Effects of cultural differences which are not relevant or important to the main purposes of the study should be minimized to the extent possible. C.2 The amount of overlap in the constructs in the populations of interest should be assessed. Test Development and Adaptation D.1 Test developers/publishers should insure that the adaptation process takes full account of linguistic and cultural differences among the populations for whom adapted versions of the instrument are intended. D.2 Test developers/publishers should provide evidence that the language use in the directions, rubrics, and items themselves as well as in the handbook are appropriate for all cultural and language populations for whom the instrument is intended. D.3 Test developers/publishers should provide evidence that the choice of testing techniques, item formats, test conventions, and procedures are familiar to all intended populations. D.4 Test developers/publishers should provide evidence that item content and stimulus materials are familiar to all intended populations.

    • D.5 Test developers/publishers should implement systematic judgmental evidence, both linguistic and psychological, to improve the accuracy of the adaptation process and compile evidence on the equivalence of all language versions. D.6 Test developers/publishers should ensure that the data collection design permits the use of appropriate statistical techniques to establish item equivalence between the different language versions of the instrument. D.7 Test developers/publishers should apply appropriate statistical techniques to establish the equivalence of the different versions of the instrument, and identify problematic components or aspects of the instrument which may be inadequate to one or more of the intended populations. D.8 Test developers/publishers should provide information on the evaluation of validity in all target populations for whom the adapted versions are intended. D.9 Test developers/publishers should provide statistical evidence of the equivalence of questions for all intended populations. D.10 Non-equivalent questions between versions intended for different populations should not be used in preparing a common scale or in comparing these populations. However, they may be useful in enhancing content validity of scores reported for each population separately. Administration A.1 Test developers and administrators should try to anticipate the types of problems that can be expected, and take appropriate actions to remedy these problems through the preparation of appropriate materials and instructions. A.2 Test administrators should be sensitive to a number of factors related to the stimulus materials, administration procedures, and response modes that can moderate the validity of the inferences drawn from the scores. A.3 Those aspects of the environment that influence the administration of an instrument should be made as similar as possible across populations for whom the instrument is intended. A.4 Test administration instructions should be in the source and target languages to minimize the influence of unwanted sources of variation across populations. A.5 The test manual should specify all aspects of the instrument and its administration that require scrutiny in the application of the test in a new cultural context. A.6 The administrator should be unobtrusive and the administrator-examinee interaction should be minimized. Explicit rules that are described in the manual for the test should be followed. Documentation/Score Interpretations I.1 When a test is adapted for use in another population, documentation of the changes should be provided, along with evidence of the equivalence. I.2 Score differences among samples of populations administered the test should not be taken at face value. The researcher has the responsibility to substantiate the differences with other empirical evidence. I.3 Comparisons across populations can only be made at the level of invariance that has been established for the scale on which scores are reported.
