Kaufman Brief Intelligence is Not Good for Our County

The K-BitII screening in the county my son goes to school for yrs now have not been by far accurate.


I have spoken with many parents of elementary, Middle and High School students. To whom have all recommended I take my son to be tested on my own, at all costs. These were parents of children who had them tested by K-BitII & failed by a couple of points. These kids were not allowed to proceed to the next test step in Gifted Screening. The parents then had them tested by a real psychologist with a true IQ testing; which by the way takes 6hrs broken up into 3- 2hr increments. The results were outstandingly contradictive to the K-BitII. The kids of these parents tested at a minimum of one to two grade levels higher than their current grade level. One of the parents kids are graduating at 16yrs old.

The gifted teacher who tested my son last year told me personally our county is very different than the other counties she tests. She also recommended to me that I have him tested on my own if I can. She told me she believes he needs to be in gifted. As a result of going around the county my incentive is if he passes it, those results overrule the county testing. My child must then be placed in the gifted program.
