Middle Development Instrument: Our Children's Voices (Video)

The Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI) is a self-report questionnaire completed by children in Grade 4.  The questionnaire includes 71 questions related to the five areas of development that are strongly linked to well-being, health and academic achievement. The MDI is a unique tool for two reasons. It gathers information about the “whole child” rather than simply focusing on academic progress. As well, it allows us to hear children’s voices and so taps into areas that have great significance in children’s lives that are not typically evaluated in other assessments. Find out more about the MDI and watch the video (6:45), Our Children’s Voices here.
