Product Details

The KABC-II NU has a broad theoretical base, making it the instrument of choice for all cognitive assessment applications.

Benefits

  • Fairly assess children of different backgrounds and with diverse problems, with small score differences between ethnic groups.
  • Get insight into how a child receives and processes information to help pinpoint cognitive strengths and weaknesses
  • Be confident you're getting a true picture of a child's abilities — even when language difficulties or cultural differences might affect test scores.
  • Answer referral questions and test hypotheses with fully normed and validated supplemental subtests.

Features

KABC-II NU scales include: Simultaneous (Gv), Sequential (Gsm), Planning (Gf), Learning (Glr), and Knowledge (Gc included in CHC model only)

  • Dual theoretical model: choose from the Cattell-Horn-Carroll model or Luria model for a global score that is highly valid.
  • A nonverbal option can be used to assess a child whose verbal skills are significantly limited.
  • A wide range of scales and subtests are designed to minimize verbal instructions and responses, and give a detailed picture of cognitive ability.
  • Provides correct Spanish-language responses and teaching text on the easels and record form.

A normative sample of 700 children and adolescents ages 3 years, 0 months to 18 years, 11 months was collected. The sample matched the U.S. population on the stratification variables of gender, race/ethnicity, parent education level, and region. Each year of age between 3 and 18 was represented by 50 children, equally divided between males and females.

Is the KABC-II NU linked to the KTEA-3?

Yes, when an ability/achievement comparison is needed, the KABC-II NU is linked to the Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement | 3rd Edition (KTEA-3).

What do I need to buy if I already have a KABC-II Kit?

For existing customers, the only new items needed are the KABC-II NU Manual Supplement (25047) and the KABC-II NU Record Forms (25041). The KABC-II NU Norm Update Supplement will come with a sticker you can place on the KABC-II Manual to remind you to utilize the norms from KABC-II NU Norm Update Supplement.

The same KABC-II easels, manual, stimulus, and manipulative materials will be utilized with the KABC-II NU.
 

What do I need to buy if I am a new KABC customer?

Do I need a new Q-global Scoring Subscription for the KABC-II NU?

No, your existing Q-global Scoring Subscription for the KABC-II will continue to be used. Any assessment completed after the publication date of the KABC-II NU will utilize the new norms.

Do I need to purchase a separate code for individual Q-global KABC-II NU Score Reports?

No, you will continue to utilize the existing code, 64000.

Can I still see historically completed KABC-II Assessments with the old norms in Q-global?

Yes, assessments completed before publication of the KABC-II NU will still be able to be scored using the old KABC-II norms.

Do you test bilingual examinees who speak both Spanish and English?

Although the Knowledge/Crystallized Ability subtests must be administered in English, correct responses in other languages are given credit. The KABC-II NU provides correct Spanish-language responses and teaching text on the easels and record form. This makes scoring easier and more accurate.
