Conversion on Scaled Scores to Standard Scores on K-BIT 2

By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D


Q: My daughter is 4.6 years old and she was recently tested on the KBIT 2. We were given scaled scores instead of standard scores and we don't know what to make of the results. They are as follows:

Verbal scaled score: 15
Non-verbal scaled score:9
Composite score: 12

My question is, is the discrepancy between the verbal and non-verbal scores significant and is further testing warranted?

A: Based on the conversion table the standard scores show as below:

  • Verbal scaled score: 125 (95%) - Superior

  • Non-verbal scaled score: 95 (37%) - Average

  • Composite score: 110 (75%) - High Average

There is a rather huge gap between the verbal and non-verbal scores and it would be good to do further testing. Detailed breakdown is necessary to understand the scores better. Do speak to the tester. There is possibly a learning concern that needs to be addressed.
All the best!
