K-BIT 2 and K-TEA II Score Range
By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D
\My son is 12 years, 5 months old. He recently completed KBIT-2 and KTEA
II testing. His scores are:
IQ Composite 96
Battery Composite 81
Cog-At Raw Score
I am having trouble locating a classification rating chart for these
tests and am wondering where he falls. Thank you!
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 programmes. Additionally, this test is
also able to identify high-risk children through large-scale screening
who may require a more comprehensive evaluation. So, briefly, it serves
the purpose to provide a relatively quick and accurate estimate of
abilities; and to identify students who may benefit from gifted or
The Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, Second Edition (KTEA-II) is
an individually administered battery that gives you a flexible, thorough
assessment of the key academic skills in reading, math, written
language, and oral language.
Based on a mean of 100 and standard deviation of 15, your son scored
average at 96 points (about 85-115 should be within the average range on
a bell curve) for the K-BIT-2. The Standard Scores range from 40 to 160.
There is a very large discrepancy between his verbal and non-verbal
scores and this may be a concern of a possible learning disability. He
would probably need a more comprehensive test. Get some help here.
For the KTEA-II, typically scores between 90-109 are the Average range
and consist of the level of skills acquired by most children. 100 is the
Mean and any score furthest from 100 either way the score indicates
either above or below average. Refer to the table below for KTEA-II:
|116 - 130
||14 - 16
|85 - 115
||7 - 13
|70 - 84
||4 - 6
|69 and below
||3 and below
In the case of your son, it appears that he scored in the Below Average
range; however just about Average for Math.
I would seek help with the interpretation of the scores especially since
there may be a case of a learning concern here. Speak to someone from
the school for further help in interpreting the results. Good luck!
