Sammanfattning

This study investigated reliability and validity evidence regarding the Early Numeracy test (EN-test) in a sample of 1139 Swedish-speaking children (587 girls) in kindergarten (n= 361),firstgrade (n= 321), and second grade (n= 457). Structural validity evidence was establishedthrough confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), which showed that a four-factor modelfit the datasignificantly better than a one-factor or two-factor model. The known-group and cross-culturalvalidity were established through multigroup CFAs,finding that the four-factor modelfit thegender, age and language groups equally well. Internal consistency for the test and sub-skillsvaried from good to excellent. The EN-test can be considered as an appropriate assessment toidentify children at risk for mathematical learning difficulties
