Product Details

The BASI series comprises multi-level, norm-referenced achievement tests for children and adults that may be group- or self-administered.

Benefits

There are two versions available of the BASI test.

 

Comprehensive Version

  • Determine a child’s or adult’s academic strengths and weaknesses.
  • Diagnose learning disabilities in reading, mathematics, and spelling.
  • Efficiently complete follow-up evaluations or evaluate offenders for educational programs.
  • Design learning interventions.
  • Measure progress throughout the year or over several years, and estimate Adequate Yearly Progress for No Child Left Behind reporting.
  • Compare a student’s performance to the national average.

Survey Version

  • Gain a quick overview of achievement.
  • Screen for giftedness.
  • Test groups that are diverse in age and/or ability.
  • Determine which level of the BASI series to administer to an adult or student performing significantly above or below grade level.
  • Test in situations where time is limited or where it is not necessary to gather detailed information by learning objective.
  • Evaluate offenders at intake.

Features

The BASI is comprised of six timed subtests that can be administered independently or in any combination.

  • Subtests: Vocabulary, Spelling, Language Mechanics, Reading Comprehension, Math Computation, and Math Application.
  • Organized into four grade levels: grades 3–4, grades 5–6, grades 7–8, and grades 9–12. 
  • Low basal level and a high ceiling. Individuals with academic deficiencies can answer items to help generate informative data; high-performing students are challenged to help differentiate between gifted and highly gifted individuals.
  • Breadth of scores: standard scores, national percentile rankings, grade equivalency, age equivalency, and performance classification by learning objective.
  • Current norms: Standardized during the 2002–03 school year, using a sample matching 2000 U.S. Census data.

Sample Reports

Student Summary Report: A one-page report that summarizes the student’s performance by skills composite, subtest and learning objectives. Also includes a parent’s report.

BASI College Report: A free, optional report available for level 4 of the BASI Comprehensive version, the College Report shows how a student’s BASI scores compare to the scores of a census-matched national sample at the student’s grade level, and to two samples of college students.

Adult Summary Report: A one-page report that summarizes an adult’s performance by skills composite, subtest, and learning objectives.

Summary Report: Summarizes a student or adult’s performance on the math and/or verbal subtests.
