Use of the Kaufman Adolescent and Adult Intelligence Test (KAIT) in the New Millennium.
Smith, Douglas K.
This article describes the Kaufman Adolescent and Adult Intelligence Test (KAIT), emphasizing its theoretical base and the distinction between crystallized and fluid intelligence. It presents a synopsis of standardization data as well as reliability and validity data. Several uses of the KAIT are described with two case studies presented to illustrate its usefulness. The KAIT has strong psychometric properties and is well suited for use in both school and clinical settings. It contains more subtests measuring fluid intelligence than any other cognitive battery. All subtests require the use of formal problem solving skills. The KAIT has a strong theoretical base and offers an additional option for the evaluation of individuals ages 12 to 85.
