KABC-II (Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition)
The KABC (Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children) is an individually administered, culturally fair test that measures cognitive abilities in children ages 3 – 18. There are 18 subtests that assess knowledge, memory, pattern recognition, serial reasoning, and more. Many of the subtests on the KABC-II are similar to those used with the NNAT-2 and 3, Woodcock-Johnson-III Tests of Achievement, OLSAT and Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test-2 (KBIT-2). In fact, it is more common to see schools use the KBIT-2 to pre-qualify students for gifted and talented programs. If the child achieves a minimum score, then they are then invited to go on for more in-depth testing with a full IQ Test instrument.
