Abstract

Summary A method is described for plotting children's growth progress in terms of deviation from the group mean. Individual measurements are transcribed by means of a simple table into standard scores and thus plotted on the Fels Composite Sheet. Many factors, such as height, weight, skeletal development, and dentition, may be plotted on the same composite sheet. In this way, interrelationships between various measures of growth may be easily seen. We believe the method reveals a great deal of information often overlooked when other methods are used. Any growth factor, physiologic characteristic or measure of performance for which means and standard deviations are available may be so plotted. The composite sheet is, we believe, well adapted to the needs of many pediatricians for maintaining case records on their patients.
