- It is natural that parents who have early childhood want to know more about their child's psychological condition. Presumably, early childhood teachers are the "most appropriate" to know the psychological condition of their students, as well as other experts such as psychologists, psychiatrists and counselors. These "experts" should not be rash to use psychological tests and the results, moreover those tests that are not yet standardized or simply adopted, and not scientifically adapted in order to adapt to the conditions of early childhood and local culture. Even if it has been adapted, and it has been long enough and unsuitable with current conditions, it needs to be re-standardized. Based on preliminary studies in research and development in 2017, it is known that re-standardization is needed especially in the conversion of raw scores into standardized scores (weighted scores), including in the use of the results. This article presents the exposure of preliminary data and psychological test re-standardization procedures that scientifically then "appropriate" to use for early childhood.
