Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test Second Edition (KBIT-2) is a brief measure of verbal and nonverbal intelligence used with individuals ages 4 through 90 years.

  • 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 students who may benefit from enrichment or gifted programs.

Like its predecessor, KBIT-2 continues to provide high reliability and validity.
