Introducing the new KTEA-3 Brief, for ages 4:0 – 25:11. This easy-to-administer tool yields a truly valid and reliable assessment using six core subtests from the KTEA-3 Comprehensive Form B.
Customize the test battery to suit your needs
For grade K through age 25, the KTEA-3 Brief offers two overall estimates of academic skills: a 3-subtest Brief Achievement composite (BA-3) and an Academic Skills Battery (ASB) composite. The ASB battery also yields core composites in Reading, Math, and Written Language for evaluating academic strengths and weaknesses.
For children in Pre-K, the Brief offers a Reading composite and the ASB composite.
The KTEA-3 Brief is ideal as a stand-alone screener of basic academic skills. Correlations between the BA-3 and the more comprehensive ASB composite are high (.9+) at every grade and age level. In about 20 minutes, obtain a BA-3 composite by administering just three subtests:
- Letter and Word Recognition
- Math Computation
If more information is needed for pre-referral, re-testing, or progress monitoring, composites for Reading, Math, and Written Language are available by administering the three additional Brief subtests:
- Reading Comprehension
- Math Concepts and Applications
- Written Expression
Apply the KTEA-3 Brief results to the Comprehensive Form
When KTEA-3 Brief results indicate that further evaluation is needed, you can incorporate the Brief standard scores when reporting results with the KTEA-3 Comprehensive Form A or Form B. No need to re-administer those subtests! Standard scores from the Brief may be used interchangeably with the subtest and composite standard scores from the Comprehensive Form.
