K-BIT Test Score

By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D


Q: My 4 year old daughter scored a 101 on the K-BIT screening 101, I was just wondering how well she scored compared to other children her age. What is a general test score for the K-BIT for a 4 year old?

A: Briefly, The Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test, Second Edition (K-BIT 2) is used to measure verbal and nonverbal cognitive ability. It is used to obtain a quick estimate of intelligence, estimate an individual's verbal versus nonverbal intelligence and/or to screen to identify students who may benefit from enrichment or gifted programs. Additionally, this test is also able to identify high-risk children through large-scale screening who may require a more comprehensive evaluation. In short, it serves the purpose to provide a relatively quick and accurate estimate of abilities; and to identify children who may benefit from gifted or enrichment programs.

Based on a mean of 100 and standard deviation of 15, your daughter scores are average (about 85-115 should be within the average range on a bell curve) for the K-BIT-2. Her scores are in the upper extreme of scores, which indicates very high abilities. There is no general test score as such but an average score would be based on 100 and usually above 115 would be above average. To compare her scores with other 4 year-olds, you would need to check the percentile. Percentile refers to the number of other test takers' scores that a person's score is equal to or exceeds.

Your daughter is rather young and perhaps you may want to wait for a few years for more stabilized test results. Hope the above helps. Best wishes to you!.
