The seven Kaufman measures include the Kaufman Adolescent and Adult Intelligence Test (KAIT); Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC); Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT); Kaufman Functional Academic Skills Test (K-FAST); Kaufman Short Neuropsychological Assessment Procedure (K-SNAP); Early Screening Profiles (ESP); and Kaufman Survey of Early Academic and Language Skills (K-SEALS). In order to use them properly, professionals need authoritative advice and guidance on how to administer, score, and interpret these tests. Essentials of Cognitive Assessment with KAIT and Other Kaufman Measures is that source.

Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

Essentials of Cognitive Assessment with KAIT and Other Kaufman Measures includes vital information about each of the seven Kaufman tests, including information on how to integrate the measures and recommendations of related readings. In addition to step-by-step guidance on test administration, scoring, and interpretation, the authors provide their expert assessment of the tests' relative strengths and weaknesses, valuable advice on their clinical applications, and several illuminating case reports.
