The Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, Third Edition (KTEA–3) helps you to quickly and easily identify strengths and weaknesses, to help you determine the right intervention to follow-up with. It also provides a deeper understanding of achievement gaps, so that you can help your students to achieve their potential.
KTEA-3 is an individually administered measure of academic achievement, a comprehensive assessment that evaluates key reading, maths, written language, and oral language skills. It covers a wide range of achievement and language domains and includes two independent, concurrently normed parallel forms (A and B) to help you accurately measure academic progress and minimise practice effects.
