Research Supported Error Analysis

KTEA–3 error analysis normative data provided the basis of research for 13 articles to be included in a double special issue of the Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment (January-February, 2017) called "Analysis of Student Errors in Reading, Writing, and Math: Implications for Assessment and Intervention." These articles stem from a core belief that error analysis is a critical step for understanding how a student learns and needs to be taught. Unlike standard scores and percentiles, error analysis data provide information about level of mastery for specific skills and reflects the specific processes that mediated performance at the item level. Several of the studies investigated whether patterns of academic errors differ between special groups (e.g., students with intellectual disabilities, giftedness, learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and between groups of students with specific cognitive profiles associated with learning problems—such as high fluid reasoning paired with low memory or speed. The research described in this special issue of Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment focuses on patterns of errors in and across academic domains on the KTEA–3, revealing valuable insights for improving assessment and instruction.

Two options for scoring and reporting the KTEA-3 are now available on Q-global.

Q-global is Pearson's new scoring & reporting system that replaces the ASSIST software program. There are two options available to you when using Q-global.

The first option is to pay per-report. Customers who administer the KTEA-3 only a few times each year, or those who want the flexibility to pay only as the assessment is used, may prefer this option.

The second option is to select an “unlimited use” subscription, where one user of the KTEA-3 gets unlimited scoring and reporting for one year, three years, or five years. This may be a better option for customers who administer the KTEA-3 several times each year—and don’t want to worry about keeping track of their report expenses.

Q-global reports provide:

  • A summary of student performance by composite or subtest
  • Comparisons of skill areas or subtests for easy interpretation of results
  • Achievement/ability comparisons
  • Error analysis norms for all standard subtests
  • Suggestions for designing IEP goals based on Error Analysis results
  • Lists of math problems or reading or spelling words similar to those that were difficult for the student

Q-global Unlimited-use Scoring Subscriptions

Two pricing options are now available for KTEA -3 scoring and reporting on Q-global. In addition to the current per-report price, there is now an unlimited-use scoring and reporting subscription.

Important note: Each subscription is per user for the KTEA-3 only and will begin on the date of order processing unless otherwise requested.

  • KTEA™-3 and WIAT®-III Dyslexia Index Scores: The What's, Why's, and How's

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, PhD

    With mounting regulatory pressure on school districts to implement an identification plan for students with dyslexia, there comes an increased need to have diagnostic tools that are both theoretically and psychometrically sound. Schools and clinicians need tools that allow high risk decisions to be made with a high degree of confidence. Breaux & Lichtenberger's (2016) work on The Dyslexia Index Scores for WIAT-III and KTEA-III provide us with just such tools. Pearson invites you to attend this 30 minute webinar on the nuts, bolts, and everything in between with regard to the Dyslexia Index Scores. Conducted by Pearson's Dr. Adam Scheller, this ""how to, what, and why"" session will provide you with the information you'll need to make a decision about adding these tools to your Dyslexia assessment toolkit.

    Also, please watch for information on upcoming related sessions in the Dyslexia assessment series. Dr. Scheller will conduct a session for Dyslexia Case Study Analysis on 11/8/18; and we will hold a joint session on 12/7/18 with Drs. Kristina Breaux and Adam Scheller on The Analysis of Differential Diagnoses in Dyslexia. Attendees of the webinars on 11/8/18 and 12/7/18 will have the opportunity to earn NASP CPDs and/or APA CEs.

  • Application of Cognitive Hypothesis Testing Using PSW Analysis

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, Ph.D., Senior Educational Consultant with Pearson Clinical Assessment

    School districts across the country have adopted new and modified old(er) special education evaluation processes in line with the requirements outlined in IDEIA 2004. Since this revised legislation opened the door for schools to use several different means to qualify students with special education needs, we have witnessed an explosion of RTI programs and a subsequent decline in discrepancy-model usage. However, one area included in the law has received less fanfare, the process of analysing the concordance (and thus discordance) between related cognitive and academic processes. During this one-hour webinar Dr. Scheller will review this process of cognitive hypothesis testing by taking an in-depth look at how to apply widely used assessments such as the WISC-V, KTEA-3, and WIAT-III. Dr. Scheller’s goal in this one-hour webinar will be to help take clinicians to a level of detail and accuracy when forming and testing hypotheses about a child’s patterns of thinking and learning.

  • Overview of the KTEA-3: Part II

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, PhD

    During this second session of the KTEA-3 Overview Webinar Series, we will look in more depth at some of the changes made to the KTEA that were focused on the qualitative indicators of SLD, the parent/teacher interventions suggested that are based on a student’s KTEA-3 performance, and how the test maps to common core standards. Finally, the session will also briefly give information about upcoming combo reports with WISC-V and KABC-II that can be used to drive LD subtype identification.

Q & A from the KTEA-3 and WIAT-III Dyslexia Index scores webinars

  • Can I attend this webinar?

  • Can I access the WIAT-III or KTEA-3 Dyslexia Index scores from Q-interactive?

    Soon! They are ready for the next release on Q-interactive, which should be within the month.

  • Where do I access these Dyslexia Index scores?

    In print, in Q-global, and soon-to-be in Q-interactive!

    • KTEA-3 Dyslexia Index Scores Manual (Manual Scoring) 015801524X
    • KTEA-3 Dyslexia Index Scores Manual on Q-global 0150023189
    • WIAT-III Dyslexia Index Scores Manual (Manual Scoring) 0158015258
    • WIAT-III Dyslexia Index Scores Manual on Q-global 0150023197
  • Is the information in these new manuals similar to the Essentials book?

    The original tables were first published in the Wiley Essentials of KTEA-3 and WIAT-III Assessment book, yes. However, these new manuals are expanded in content (with a wider age range in the case of WIAT-III), have the necessary forms, directly include scoring and significant interpretive information related to risk and recommendation language.

  • Is the score form included when I order protocols?

    The score form is included in the new manuals--you may reproduce!

  • If we use either the KTEA-3 or the WIAT-III comprehensive tests now, can we just use the relevant subtests needed for these scores, or do we need other content?

    If you have the current KTEA-3 or WIAT-III complete kits, you have everything you need except the new Dyslexia Index score manual--choose print or Q-global version.

  • Can I use the raw data from the Q-interactive administration to score using one of these new manuals?

    Yes, you can use an existing KTEA-3 or WIAT-III administration with the new Dyslexia Index score manual.

  • Will Q-global score this currently? 

    We are working on approvals for integrating the Dyslexia Index scores into the Q-global scoring and reporting, but that functionality is not available at this time.

  • How do you get the computation form?

    It's included in the new manual.

  • Will the WIAT-III Dyslexia Index score give us a different score than typical scoring on the WIAT-III? 

    Yes. It will provide a new score and that was not available before in the WIAT-III test. This score can be used on its own as a screener, or it can be used as part of the comprehensive evaluation with a full administration of KTEA-3 or WIAT-III.
