Like its predecessor, KBIT-2 can be used in a variety of situations. With KBIT-2, you can:

  • Obtain a quick estimate of intelligence
  • Estimate an individual’s verbal versus nonverbal intelligence
  • Re-evaluate the intellectual status of a child or adult who previously received thorough cognitive assessment
  • Identify high-risk children through large-scale screening who require a more comprehensive evaluation
  • Obtain a quick estimate of the intellectual ability of adults in institutional settings, such as prisons, group homes, rehabilitation clinics or mental health centres

KBIT-2 measures two distinct cognitive abilities through two scales—Crystallised and Fluid.

  • Crystallised (Verbal) Scale contains two item types: Verbal Knowledge and Riddles
  • Fluid (Nonverbal) Scale is a Matrices subtest

Like the original, KBIT-2 continues to provide:  

  • High reliability and validity
  • Attractive, easy to use materials
  • Scores provided on a familiar scale where mean = 100 and standard deviation = 15
