Caregiver-Reported Early Development Instrument (CREDI) Long Form - India

Ready for purposeThe Caregiver Reported Early Development Instrument (CREDI) was designed to serve as a population-level measure of early childhood development (ECD) for children from birth to age three. The 117-item Long Form used in India gathers information on the development of five inter-related domains: motor, cognitive, language, social-emotional, and mental health. The measure does not have the ability to provide information about individual children (e.g. as a screener). 

See CREDI Long Form - China and CREDI Short Form - Brazil for different versions of this measurement tool.

Disclaimer: This tool was not tested in an EiE context. The Measurement Library Reference Group members are including the measure as it shows promise for use in EiE contexts with careful adaptation. 

This tool is part of the Measurement Library. Learn more about the olive tree stages in our Measure Review Criteria. If you'd like to select and adapt a measure, read our Measure Guidance.
