Description of SailAway Assessment Tests

The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fourth Edition  (WISC-IV)

The WISC-IV is an individually administered assessment designed to determine varying abilities related to the child’s intelligence, cognitive abilities, memory and processing speed.  The WISC reveals where problems are academically and behaviorally and documents those elements very clearly. Coupled with other diagnostic and academic achievement tests, the WISC is a key component in the creation of an educational and behavioral action plan for individual students.

The Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement – Second Edition (KTEA II)

KTEA-II is an individually administered assessment that provides academic information in Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Spelling and Oral Language. Comprehensive achievement scores are key in determining the current level of academic functioning a child possesses and provides a strategic role in finding gaps in current abilities.

Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test – 4 (PPVT-4)

The PPVT–4 measures understanding of spoken, standard American-English words and assesses vocabulary acquisition. This test covers a broad range of receptive vocabulary levels, from preschool through adult. As a non-verbal evaluation, the PPVT-4 is invaluable in assessing the cognitive potential of students with limited or no oral language.

Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA)

The T.O.V.A. is an objective, neuropsychological test that measures sustained and selective attention. The T.O.V.A. is the most widely used objective measure of attention in the world, and is considered the “Gold Standard” among measures of its type.

Test of Memory and Learning – 2 (TOMAL-2)

The TOMAL-2 is the most comprehensive memory assessment currently available in a standardized battery. Index scores allow the educator a predictive window into how memory affects the student’s overall ability to learn and to pay attention and concentrate. It also reveals valuable information about a student’s ability in delayed verbal recall, sequential memory, free recall, and associated recall, areas that impact the student’s ability to achieve academically.

Woodcock Reading Mastery Test – Revised – Normative Update (WRMT-R/NU)

WRMT-R/NU is an individually administered assessment that examines the reading skills of children and adults. Based on scientific research and tested with years of actual classroom use, the WRMT-R/NU identifies children’s specific strengths and weaknesses in reading skills.

KTEA-II Brief

The KTEA-II Brief Form is used as a quick measure of achievement and is recommended for yearly testing. The assessment features an expanded age range from 4 years, 6 months to 90 years and yields norm-referenced subtest scores and a battery composite.

Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test

The Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT) measures both verbal and nonverbal intellectual ability quickly. It can identify high-risk children who require a more comprehensive evaluation. It is also is a good screen to identify students who may benefit from enrichment or gifted programs.
