Description: 

The Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, 2nd Edition (KABC-II) is an individually administered measure of the processing and cognitive abilities of children and adolescents aged three through eighteen. The KABC-II is a theory-based clinical instrument that contributes to culturally fair assessment, while being attractive and engaging. Benefits include full co-norming with the new Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, 2nd Ed. (KTEA-II), for in-depth ability/achievement comparisons. Use the new KABC-II when you need a test of ability that more fairly assesses children of different backgrounds and with diverse problems. Extensively redesigned and updated, this test provides detailed, accurate information and unprecedented flexibility. With the KABC-II, you can choose from two theoretical models to meet the needs of each examinee. Administer the same subtests on four or five ability scales. Then, interpret the results using the Luria or Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) model, based on the reason for referral or the child's background. In addition, a nonverbal option allows you to assess a child whose verbal skills are severely limited. A range of scales and subtests give you a detailed picture of cognitive ability. KABC-II scales include: Sequential Processing/Short-Term Memory, Simultaneous Processing/ Visual Processing, Learning Ability/Long-Term Storage and Retrieval, Planning Ability/Fluid Reasoning, Knowledge/Crystallized Ability (included in the CHC model only).
