- Three subtests offer a well-rounded profile
- High-quality norms and reliability coefficients offer greater confidence
Useful for a variety of applications
The Kaufman Survey of Early Academic and Language Skills (K-SEALS) is perfect for preschools, kindergartens, elementary schools, speech and language clinics, medical agencies, or any other setting in which young children are assessed.
K-SEALS is valuable in a variety of situations—testing school readiness, identifying gifted children, evaluating program effectiveness, and researching children’s early development.
K-SEALS features three separate subtests for a well-rounded profile:
- Vocabulary Subtest—the child identifies, by gesture or name, pictures of objects or actions and points to or names objects based on verbal descriptions of their attributes
- Numbers, Letters & Words—the child selects or names numbers, letters, or words; counts; indicates knowledge of number concepts (“smallest,” “half”); and solves number problems
- Articulation Survey—the child pronounces the names of common objects or actions and is assessed for correctness of pronunciation
Flexible test interpretation
K-SEALS is an expanded and enhanced version of the Cognitive/ Language Profile in the Early Screening Profiles. This means you receive a more reliable and balanced evaluation in the subtest, scale, and composite content areas. K-SEALS features three separate subtests for a well-rounded profile: Vocabulary Subtest; Numbers, Letters & Words; and Articulation Survey.
K-SEALS assures reliable, valid scores, including test-retest stability over long and short intervals. K-SEALS is standardized on a national sample of 1,000. The sample was controlled for age, gender, race, geographic region, and community size.
