Transcript of Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (KBIT)

Breanne Duffy and Fille Guillaume Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test Edition 2 Where it began The Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (KBIT-2) was created by Dr. Alan S. Kaufman and Dr. Nadeen C. Kaufman.

They have been at Yale's Child Study Center in the medical school since 1977.

The KBIT-2 (second edition of the KBIT which we are presenting today) was written in 2004. Purposes of the KBIT-2 This test measures verbal and non-verbal intelligence through 3 subtests.

It screens to identify high-risk children who require subsequent in-depth evaluation.

Measures cognitive ability as part of a gifted/talented selection process.

This test is used for students, testing job applicants, prisoners, military recruits and hospital patients. Information about the KBIT-2 The test is appropriate for ages 4-90.

It is very simple and easy to administer, and it only takes about 15-30 minutes to administer.

Allows flexibility in testing as well as teaching opportunities during administration.

Scores translate well to other major cognitive tests. Subtest #1: Verbal Knowledge This section is a 60 item measure of receptive vocabulary and range of general information about the world.

Each page has pictures, and the test administrator will give a command, such as "point to the clock", and the student will do so.

Many of the pictures are situational and the student will need to make inferences- topics include science, vocabulary, geography, and social science. Subtest #2: Matrices This subtest is a 46 item nonverbal measure composed of several types of items involving visual stimuli, both meaningful (people and objects) and abstract (designs and symbols.

Includes at least 5 response options.

This subtest is all about understanding relationships between stimuli. Subtest #3: Riddles This subtest has 48 items that measure verbal comprehension, reasoning, and vocabulary knowledge. The examiner asks a riddle, and the examinee either points to a picture that shows the answer, or says a single word that answers the riddle.

Let's try a few! Scoring The test administrator will circle 1 if the examinee got the answer correct, and if incorrect, circle 0 and give the answer that they gave.

Then, the examiner will total the number of correct answers to find the raw scores, then use the tables in the book to find the standard scores for the verbal and nonverbal sections.Plot it on the curve.

The nonverbal plus the verbal sections equals the examinee's IQ composite, and measures whether a person is below average, average, or above average. Strengths Can be used in many different situations - not only in the school setting.

Easy to administer and grade.

Allows opportunities to teach during the test.

Only takes 15-30 minutes, and is not stressful for the student due to its game-like questions.

The questions are also in Spanish for ELL students. Weaknesses Very brief - can this test really be an accurate measure of a student's IQ?

It is easy for the student to guess the right answers during the first two portions, because they are picture recognition sections. Try these riddles: References Kaufman, A. S., & Kaufman, N. L.
