Technical Information

The SMALSI was developed using a normative sample of 2,921 students—1,821 students between the ages of 8 and 12 (Child Form), and 1,100 students between the ages of 13 and 18 (Teen Form). The majority of these students attended public schools and ranged in ethnicity, gender, age and grade. T-scores for both SMALSI forms were developed based on the data provided by these participants.
