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.
Professionals depend on the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT) to measure both verbal and nonverbal ability. The Second edition, also developed by leading cognitive ability experts Alan and Nadeen Kaufman, provides the same practical and affordable test with enhanced benefits.
