We've a new video discussion with our senior clinical consultant about this new battery, which answers many frequently asked questions and also highlights the advantages of using this battery of tests.



Features and benefits
 

  •     Administration and scoring are straightforward and easy—and both versions have a Fast Guide to help you get started.
  •     Unlike similar measures, the AAB requires no certification or intensive preparation—simply open your AAB kit and review the materials, and you will be ready to begin assessment.
  •     Provides age- and year-based (Autumn and Spring) norms.


Comprehensive Form
 

  •     Can be administered in about 90 minutes and scored in 15 minutes.
  •     The Academic Achievement Battery Composite, a total score, provides an overview of the individual’s overall performance on the various aspects of achievement measured by the AAB.
  •     A skills analysis enables you to investigate the individual’s strengths and weaknesses and offers a wealth of data with which to make interpretations and recommendations.
  •     Provides discrepancy scores and reliable change scores.


Screening Form
 

  •     Can be administered in 15-30 minutes and scored in 5-10 minutes.
  •     Measures basic academic skills including letter and word reading, spelling, and mathematical calculation.
  •     An optional written composition component requires an extra 15 minutes to administer.
  •     A composite score provides the user with a snapshot of the individual’s performance in reading, spelling, writing, and maths.
  •     Appropriate for evaluating fundamental academic skills during an initial evaluation, during reevaluation, or when working with those referred for learning, behaviour, or career concerns.


Technical information
 

  •     Reliability coefficients for the subtests range from .77 to .97 and from .88 to .98 for the composite scores across the age- and year base normative samples.
  •     AAB subtest and composite scores were found to be highly correlated with similar constructs on the WJ® III, KTEA™ -II, WRAT4, and WIAT® -III.
  •     The manual includes evidence supporting the ability of the AAB to differentiate performance in individuals with learning difficulty, intellectual developmental disorder, ADHD, and specific language impairment.
