Product Details

The KTEA–3 Dyslexia Index scores help to quickly identify dyslexia risk for students in grades K-12.

Benefits

The KTEA-3 Dyslexia Index Scores may be used:

  • As an evidence-based dyslexia screener
  • To identify students who may benefit from a more comprehensive evaluation or assessment battery
  • For research

Scores

The KTEA–3 Dyslexia Index scores were designed to provide theoretically sound, reliable, and clinically sensitive composite scores for identifying risk for dyslexia among students in grades kindergarten through 12, or individuals ages 5 through 25. In 20 minutes or less, practitioners can obtain a Dyslexia Index score to screen for dyslexia and identify individuals who may benefit from a comprehensive evaluation or a more intensive intervention approach.

A single score such as the Dyslexia Index is not sufficient to diagnose dyslexia. Rather, a diagnosis of dyslexia is based on a convergence of evidence gathered from multiple sources. However, the Dyslexia Index results may contribute to a more in-depth evaluation using the KTEA–3 Comprehensive Form.

Two Dyslexia Index scores are provided for the KTEA–3:

  • one for grades K–1, and
  • another for grades 2–12 and adults up to age 25 (indicated by 2–12+).

Each of these Dyslexia Index scores are obtained by administering three subtests from either Form A or Form B of the KTEA–3 Comprehensive Form (Kaufman & Kaufman, 2014a). With the exception of the Response Booklet pages for the Spelling subtest, the materials needed to administer and score the Dyslexia Index subtests are available as part of the KTEA–3 Comprehensive Form. See the table below to identify which KTEA-3 components are needed for the Dyslexia Index Scores:
