Interpreting Percentile on K-BIT 2

By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D

Q: My child is 8 And was tested at school using the K-BIT 2.....she scored in the 90th percentile and they want to test her further.....what do her results mean??? They were pretty vague about the results....thank you!

A: Percentile is an age-based or grade-based score indicating the percent of the norm group of students tested who scored less than the student. Based on the percentile, your daughter scored as well or better than 90% of individuals of the same age. This means that she would be in the top 10% range. I would think that based on the estimates (of 15/16 standard deviation away from the mean of 100), your child could have an IQ score of about 120.

It appears that she may be at a borderline cut-off point for higher ability programmes. Therefore, she may be considered for further tests to determine ability-match educational programmes – one that would best enhance her learning. For further information on the conversion, please see:

All the best.
