The Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, Third Edition (WIAT(r)-III) and the Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, Second Edition (KTEA-II) are two popular measures of individual achievement. Both tests assess an individual's level of performance on academic skills and problem solving abilities and may be administered to children and adults. Like all books in the popular Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, Essentials of WIAT(r)-III and KTEA-II Assessment provides students and professionals with detailed guidelines on administration, scoring, and interpretation, as well as clinical applications of these instruments, their strengths and weaknesses, and sample case reports.Author Biography
