October 20, 2015
We are pleased to announce the release of the
Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scales™, Second Edition (RIAS™-2)
by Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD, and Randy W. Kamphaus, PhD. The RIAS-2 retains all the features that made the original instrument so popular and gives practitioners even more reason to trust this instrument.
The revised assessment, which was developed by the original authors using feedback from clinicians around the country, remains true to the original test. It’s still fast, cost effective, and simple to administer and can be used across the developmental continuum to assess intelligence and its major components from ages 3 to 94 years.
Assesses both verbal and nonverbal intelligence.
Verbal intelligence is assessed by measuring verbal problem solving and verbal reasoning, which uses acquired knowledge and skills. Nonverbal intelligence is assessed by measuring reasoning and spatial ability using novel situations and stimuli.
Optional memory subtests available.
Verbal and nonverbal memory is assessed via the Composite Memory Index, useful when a broad estimate of memory is desired.
Yields a General Reasoning Index (GRI).
A highly reliable score, the GRI reflects overall measurement of the general factor of reasoning and problem-solving skill.
Informs decisions in classification, selection, and educational placement.
The RIAS-2 is ideal as a stand-alone intellectual assessment or as part of a clinical battery, when a standardized assessment of intellectual functioning is needed to diagnose specific disorders such as intellectual disabilities or learning disabilities, and for educational placement.
New in the RIAS-2
New speeded processing subtests and index.
Two supplemental subtests (one verbal, one nonverbal) combine to create the Speeded Processing Index (SPI). Both the Speeded Naming Task and Speeded Picture Search subtests require far less motor skill than competitive measures.
Greater data for interpretation.
Reliable change scores and ability–achievement discrepancies with the AAB are provided.
Revised basal/ceiling rules.
Now all basal and ceiling rules for the subtests are consistent with one another and allow for more accurate assessment at the lowest and highest ability level.
Revised/new item content.
Items throughout the test have been updated to eliminate confusing or outdated content. Guess What, Odd-Item Out, Verbal Reasoning, What’s Missing, Verbal Memory, and Nonverbal Memory subtests appear in this update, retaining the structure and familiarity of the original measure.
Wider range of
For most grade levels,
score ranges of at least 25 to 75 are available.

Now available! For value and simplicity, look to the AAB
Now available! We are thrilled to announce the release of the new Academic Achievement Battery™ (AAB™). Ideal for measuring basic reading, math, spelling, and reading comprehension skills quickly and reliably, the new AAB can be used in educational, research, or clinical settings to confidently evaluate achievement in just 15 to 30 minutes to get an accurate overview of an individual’s educational skills. The AAB is ideal for evaluating fundamental academic skills during an initial evaluation, during reevaluation, or when working with those referred for learning, behavior, or vocational concerns across the life span. All four subtests are included in one easy-to-use response booklet. Reading subtests combine to provide a Reading Composite, which provides detailed data to understand an individual's reading skills. Plus, an overall composite score provides the user with a snapshot of an individual's academic performance. Unlike other achievement tests on the market, the AAB requires very little training, and detailed or subjective scoring has been kept to a minimum. Recent normative data are provided for 32 different age groups, and norms for children and adolescents by grade from PreK ...

Now available! The BRIEF2 Interpretive Guide!
Since 2000, school psychologists have turned to the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF) to examine executive function in the everyday, real-world environments of children ages 5 to 18 years. A revision to that groundbreaking test, the BRIEF2, was published in 2015. Featuring more concise scales, increased sensitivity to executive function problems in key clinical groups like autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and new screening forms for parents, teachers, and students, the BRIEF2 is the gold-standard for executive function testing. A new companion piece, developed and written by the BRIEF2 authors, is now available. The BRIEF2 Interpretive Guide helps school psychologists and educators gain a deeper understanding of BRIEF2 scores, write reports, plan intervention strategies, and monitor progress of students with executive function concerns. Using case examples of students with ASD and ADHD and written in a straightforward, reader-friendly style, the authors weave a narrative that will be familiar to most education professionals. This helpful guide offers optional interpretive steps and demonstrates uses for screening, basic, and advanced interpretation. Included are step-by-step guides to interpreting BRIEF2 scores and parallel ...

Now available! Help college students succeed with the KLDA

The KLDA screens college students for learning difficulties and ADHD as well as other issues that affect learning, such as anxiety, memory, and functional problems like organization and procrastination. It identifies those who should seek further assessment, so they can get the help they need to succeed in college.
