Welcome

The \(D\)-score is a one-number summary score that quantifies the general development of children. Here you find introductory booklets on the \(D\)-score, each of which addresses a particular aspect of the \(D\)-score concept.

The \(D\)-score booklet series consists of the following titles:

  1. Introduction to the \(D\)-score
  2. International comparisons
  3. Creating better instruments

Booklet I is currently available as complete draft. Booklets 2 and 3 are planned for 2019 and 2020.

This work is kindly supported by the knowledge integration (ki) program of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
