Features of the AAB
View the AAB Composite Scores and Subtests here
The AAB Screening Form measures basic academic skills including letter and word reading, spelling, and mathematical calculation. An optional written composition component requires an extra 15 minutes to administer.
A composite score provides the user with a snapshot of the individual’s performance in reading, spelling, writing, and math.
The Screening Form is appropriate for evaluating fundamental academic skills during an initial evaluation, during re-evaluation, or when working with those referred for learning, behaviour, or vocational concerns.
The AAB Comprehensive Form assesses performance in the seven areas of achievement: Basic Reading, Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension, Expressive Comprehension, Written Expression, Mathematical Calculation and Mathematical Reasoning.
The AAB Composite, a total score, provides an overview of the individual’s overall performance on the various aspects of achievement measured by the AAB.
A skills analysis enables you to investigate the individual’s strengths and weaknesses and offers a wealth of data with which to make interpretations and recommendations. It provides composite-to-composite and subtest-to-subtest discrepancy scores and reliable change scores.
The AAB may only be administered by hand, but scoring is also available online via PARiConnect.
