We use the KTEA-3 which can be administered by Qualified Professionals, including Educational Psychologists and Teachers.
From ages 4 years to 25 years, the KTEA-3 offers two overall estimates of academic skills: an Academic Skills Battery (ASB) composite. The ASB battery which yields core composites in Reading, Maths, and Written Language for evaluating academic strengths and weaknesses. These are shown in Raw scores, Standard Scores and Age equivalents. The gained observations by the assessor also provide an insight to issues which are barriers to learning. The assessment report included suggested areas for Intervention and a target approach in line with the present Assess, Plan, Do, Review expected for all pupils.
The KTEA-3 is ideal as a stand-alone screener of basic academic skills. But includes the use of subtests which help the assessor to evaluate and give recommendations.
This is a comprehensive assessment of academic skills to:
· Address additional areas of academic achievement, such as fluency in reading, writing, and maths.
· Yield additional composite scores, such as in Oral Language.
· Identify specific skill strengths and weaknesses through error analysis.
· Conduct analyses for the identification of a specific learning disability
Estimated time to undertake assessment with pupil is 2 hours. This can vary depending on pupil and the amount of subtests completed.
