The CogAT test pack provided my son with challenging questions, which prepared him to perform well on the test.
I used the GMAT prep. It's almost standing in one line with formal GMAT simulations.
We purchased the NYC G&T pack. We are extremely happy to have purchased the product. It was totally clear and simple and my son felt prepared because we used your pack to prepare. We are very, very happy!
I got the NNAT pack. I like the variety of questions offered in the test pack, as they provided us with an idea as to what will be on the test.
We got the OLSAT/NNAT Bundle. We really like that we can watch the video academy multiple times. The site is easy and comfortable to use and I would recommend it to other parents of gifted children.
I got the TEAS practice tests. Your practice test questions are actually very similar to those in the ‘real’ tests.
I got the TEAS tests. I found this website to be very helpful. The practice tests are almost identical to the real test; they have helped me a lot in studying.

How Are KBIT Test Scores Calculated?

Three scores are generated by the KBIT-2 Test:

  • Verbal (assesses crystallized ability)
  • Nonverbal (assesses fluid reasoning)
  • Overall IQ composite

Overall IQ: The Overall IQ (or Composite IQ) score is generally what people are referring to when discussing a person’s IQ. This score is based on the verbal and nonverbal subtests of the KBIT Test. The average IQ score ranges from 90-110. This is the score you will see in your child's test results.

The Overall IQ Score is found by converting the Raw Score (the total number of points earned on each subtest) into a standard score, with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15 (see bell curve below). The range of the Overall IQ Score is between 40 - 160.

Descriptive Categories

The table below provides a general description of what your child's KBIT scores mean:

Score Description
130 and above Upper extreme
120 -129 Well above average
110 - 119 Above average
109 - 90 Average
80 - 89 Below average
70 - 79 Well below average
69 and below Lower extreme

Eligibility for Gifted Programs
