How is the KBIT Test Scored?
The KBIT-2 test generates three scores: Verbal, Nonverbal, and an IQ composite score that reflects a child’s overall performance. Theoretically, the verbal subtests measure crystallized ability and the nonverbal subtests measure fluid reasoning.
The Verbal portion of the KBIT-2 test is made up of two subtests, Verbal Knowledge and Riddles. These measure verbal, school related skills by measuring an individual’s word knowledge, verbal concept formation, reasoning ability, and range of general information.
The Nonverbal portion is made up of the Matrices subtest and measures the ability to solve new problems. This is done by assessing the student’s ability to perceive relationships and complete visual analogies.
Composite IQ Score
The Composite IQ Score reflects your child’s performance as a whole. Overall (composite) IQ scores range from 40 to 160. The composite IQ Score will help identify whether your child is gifted, within average range, or may perhaps benefit from alternative or remedial classes. Contact your desired school or program and ask about their IQ score criteria.
