Social robots are being increasingly developed for long-term interactions with children. However, there are few validated assessments for measuring young children's relationships with social robots. <p>We provide several social/relational assessments for measuring young children's relationships with social robots. <br></p><p>These assessments were pilot-tested in the spring of 2017. The following paper presents the results of the pilot study for the Inclusion of Other in Self (IOS) task and the Social-Relational Interview with children aged 3-7 years. The results showed that children could appropriately respond to these assessments and that both had high internal reliability.</p><p> You are free to use or adapt these assessments.
