Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition (KABC-II)


The Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition (KABC-II) provides an extensively updated version of one of the most well-respected tests of cognitive ability available.

A test of exceptional cultural fairness

KABC-II subtests are designed to minimise verbal instructions and responses. This gives you in-depth data with less "filtering" due to language.

Also, test items contain little cultural content, so children of diverse backgrounds are assessed more fairly. You can be confident you’re getting a true picture of a child’s abilities—even when language difficulties or cultural differences might affect test scores.

Dual theoretical model gives you options

With the KABC-II, you can choose the Cattell-Horn-Carroll model for children from a mainstream cultural and language background. Or if Crystallised Ability would not be a fair indicator of the child’s cognitive ability, you may choose the Luria model which excludes verbal ability.

Administer the same subtests on four or five ability scales. Then, interpret the results based on your chosen model.

Either approach gives you a global score that is highly valid and that shows small differences between ethnic groups in comparison with other comprehensive ability batteries. In addition, a nonverbal option allows you to assess a child whose verbal skills are significantly limited.

KABC-II scales and their subtests include:

  • Triangles    
  • Face Recognition
  • Pattern Reasoning (ages 5 and 6)
  • Block Counting
  • Story Completion (ages 5 and 6)
  • Conceptual Thinking
  • Rover
  • Gestalt Closure

  • Word Order
  • Number Recall
  • Hand Movement

  • Pattern Reasoning (ages 7–18)
  • Story Completion (ages 7–18)

  • Atlantis
  • Atlantis Delayed
  • Rebus
  • Rebus Delayed

Knowledge/Gc included in the CHC model only
  • Riddles
  • Expressive Vocabulary
  • Verbal Knowledgel

The KABC-II approach provides insights into how a child receives and processes information, helping you pinpoint cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
