The scale IPDA (Terreni et al., 2011) has been applied to children attending the last year of kindergarten schools in the same town across three consecutive years. Analyses carried out in a sample of 656 children showed systematic gender differences and variations in the means scores of the IPDA subscales, as well as in the patterns of correlations between subscales, across the years. The assessment based on IPDA appears to lack stability and to be dependent on evaluators.
