How Can I Improve My Child’s KBIT-2 Score?
posted by Karen Quinn, The Testing Mom - August 7th, 2012
If your child didn’t score as highly as you had anticipated on the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test-2, it’s natural to want to enhance their score the next time around. Thankfully, there are a few simple things you can do. Remember that many factors influence a child when taking a test and some of these are outside of your control. But there are still many things that you do have the power to control that can help your child through this stressful experience.
Keeping a relaxed attitude regarding the test is the most important thing you can do in helping your child’s score improve. When a child (or anybody, for that matter) is relaxed, they think more clearly and are more likely to produce an accurate score on a test such as the KBIT-2. Anxiety about the test is likely to lead to poor results, so don’t turn the test into a big deal for your child.
Free practice IQ tests can be found online, and these are a great way to familiarize your child with the concept of test-taking. This is especially helpful for smaller children, who may not take tests in school on a regular basis.
