The British Ability Scales-Third Edition (BAS-3) is a comprehensive and flexible battery for assessing children's current intellectual functioning, from the ages of 3-17.
Comprising of 20 shorts tests, each measuring particular types of knowledge, thinking and/or skills, the BAS-3 is unique in the range of measurement facilities it offers and the variety of scales it includes. It allows an efficient and reliable assessment in 30-45 minutes (depending on the child).
The BAS-3 Core Scales - School Age Record Booklet covers the Cognitive Scales for use with school age children, from 5 years to 17 years 11 months.
The scales assess reasoning, perception, processing speed and memory using verbal, numerical and figural materials.
Some of the School Age Scales are demanding for younger children-the Early Years Battery was co-normed with the School Age from 5-7 years 11 months, so administrators may use the batteries interchangeably with children in this age range.
The School Age Record Booklet includes Core and Achievement Scales, and are used with the School Age Stimulus Books.
The Record Booklet is used by the clinician to record the child's responses and raw scores.
