A total solution for pinpointing and remediating achievement gaps

The Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, Second Edition (KTEA™-II) Comprehensive Form gives you state-of-the-art error analysis along with detailed prescriptive information for simple remediation planning. The KTEA-II is still easy to administer, score, and interpret. Redesigned and expanded, it covers all IDEA, Reading First, and NCTM achievement areas to ensure a comprehensive, research-based assessment. This outstanding instrument also features alternate forms to help you measure student progress or response to intervention and to adjust instruction based on performance.

Use the KTEA-II Comprehensive Form for in-depth analysis

The Comprehensive Form provides composite scores for Grade 1 students and older in reading, math, written language, and oral language. A Comprehensive Achievement Composite can be computed for all examinees. Six additional subtests assess reading-related skills and give valuable diagnostic information.

The Comprehensive Form provides a wealth of benefits


  • Covers all achievement areas mandated by IDEA
  • The popular error analysis procedures from the original K-TEA have been enhanced to offer additional in-depth information about a student’s performance
  • Expanded age range (4-6 to 25 years) for a thorough assessment of preschoolers to adults
  • Alternate forms to measure progress and response to intervention
  • Written Expression and Oral Expression subtests use engaging stories or situations
  • Enhanced reading subtests to measure skills from readiness through advanced levels
  • Useful comparisons between reading and listening, and writing and speaking
  • Content coverage in math enhanced with the addition of algebra and early numeracy items
  • Conormed with the KABC™-II to give you an in-depth comparison of a student’s abilities and school performance.

KTEA-II scoring gives you more options

For maximum flexibility, the KTEA-II Comprehensive Form lets you select between computer and hand-scoring. With the ASSIST™ computer scoring program, you can quickly convert raw scores to derived scores. This timesaving software contains both Macintosh and Windows programs on one CD-ROM. It also provides:

  • 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 for all standard subtests
  • Best practices instructional suggestions for designing IEP goals that match students’ score information with remediation strategies
  • Lists of math problems or reading or spelling words similar to those that were difficult for the student

Use the KTEA-II Brief Form for a quick measure of achievement

Indispensable for school and clinical psychologists, special education teachers, and others, this short measure of achievement is ideal for screening and pre-referral. It features an expanded age range of 4-6 to 90 and yields norm-referenced subtest scores and a battery composite. And because there is no content overlap with KTEA-II Comprehensive Form, it can be used for retesting.

The KTEA-II Brief Form includes three subtests:

  • Reading—word recognition and reading comprehension
  • Math—computation and application problems
  • Written Expression—written language and spelling

Conormed with KBIT-2

When you need a brief ability test, choose the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test, Second Edition (KBIT-2). It is conormed with KTEA-II Brief for ages 26 through 90.
