Abstract

The Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) is a new test of intelligence and achievement for children ages 2½ through 12½ (Kaufman & Kaufman, 1983a,b). Released in the spring of 1983, the K-ABC has received a good deal of attention from professionals (Reynolds, 1984) and the public (Starr, 1983, West, 1982) alike.
