The Vineland Social Maturity Scale is a psychometric assessment instrument designed to help in the assessment of social competence.[1][2] It was developed by the American psychologist Edgar Arnold Doll.[3][4]

It is a quality psychometric questionnaire and a good measure of adaptive behavior.[5]

Details[edit]

The test consists of 8 sub-scales measuring:

  • Communication skills
  • General self-help ability
  • Locomotion skills
  • Occupation skills
  • Self-direction
  • Self-help eating
  • Self-help dressing
  • Socialization skills
