Quick test. Powerful results.

Introducing the new KTEA-3 Brief, for ages 4:0 – 25:11. This easy-to-administer tool yields a truly valid and reliable assessment using six core subtests from the KTEA-3 Comprehensive Form B.

Also available in digital format via Q-global®


Customise the test battery to suit your needs

From ages 4 years to 25 years, the KTEA-3 Brief offers two overall estimates of academic skills: a 3-subtest Brief Achievement composite (BA-3) and an Academic Skills Battery (ASB) composite. The ASB battery also yields core composites in Reading, Maths, and Written Language for evaluating academic strengths and weaknesses.

For children aged 4 years to 6 years, the Brief offers a Reading composite and the ASB composite.

The KTEA-3 Brief is ideal as a stand-alone screener of basic academic skills. Correlations between the BA-3 and the more comprehensive ASB composite are high (.9+) at every grade and age level. In about 20 minutes, obtain a BA-3 composite by administering just three subtests: 

  • Letter and Word Recognition
  • Maths Computation
  • Spelling

If more information is needed for pre-referral, re-testing, or progress monitoring, composites for Reading, Maths, and Written Language are available by administering the three additional Brief subtests: 

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Maths Concepts and Applications
  • Written Expression

Apply the KTEA-3 Brief results to the Comprehensive Form 

When KTEA-3 Brief results indicate that further evaluation is needed, you can incorporate the Brief standard scores when reporting results with the KTEA-3 Comprehensive Form A or Form B. No need to re-administer those subtests. Standard scores from the Brief may be used interchangeably with the subtest and composite standard scores from the Comprehensive Form. 

Gain a deeper understanding of achievement gaps with the KTEA-3 Comprehensive Form 

Use this comprehensive assessment of academic skills to: 

  • Address additional areas of academic achievement, such as fluency in reading, writing, and math
  • Yield additional composite scores, such as in Oral Language
  • Identify specific skill strengths and weaknesses through error analysis
  • Conduct analyses for the identification of a specific learning disability
