The Kaufman Survey of Early Academic and Language Skills (K-SEALS) is perfect for preschools, schools, speech and language clinics or any other setting in which young children are assessed.
K-SEALS is valuable in a variety of situations—testing school readiness, identifying gifted children and researching children’s early development.
K-SEALS features three separate subtests for a well-rounded profile:
Vocabulary Subtest—the child identifies, by gesture or name, pictures of objects or actions and points to or names objects based on verbal descriptions of their attributes
Numbers, Letters & Words—the child selects or names numbers, letters, or words; counts; indicates knowledge of number concepts (“smallest,” “half”); and solves number problems
Articulation Survey—the child pronounces the names of common objects or actions and is assessed for correctness of pronunciation
K-SEALS assures reliable, valid scores, including test-retest stability over long and short intervals. K-SEALS is standardised on a sample of 1,000 US children. The sample was controlled for age, gender, race, geographic region, and community size.
