The Universal Nonverbal Intelligence Test–Second Edition (UNIT2) is designed to provide a fair assessment of intelligence for individuals who have speech, language, or hearing impairments; have different cultural or language backgrounds; or are verbally uncommunicative.
The UNIT2 consists of six subtests:
- Symbolic Memory
- Nonsymbolic Quantity
- Analogic Reasoning
- Spatial Memory
- Numerical Series
- Cube Design
In addition, the following seven composite scores are available: Memory, Reasoning, Quantitative, Abbreviated Battery, Standard Battery with Memory, Standard Battery without Memory, Full Scale Battery.
Criterion-prediction studies indicate large to very large correlations with CAS2, WISC-IV, SB-5, CTONI-2, WJ III Cognitive, and UMAS.
- All new normative sample.
- New Quantitative subtests replace Object Memory and Mazes.
- Offers Abbreviated Battery, Standard Battery With Memory, Standard Battery Without Memory, and Full Scale Battery.
- Provides an entirely nonverbal stimulus-and-response administration format.
- All new studies of reliability and validity, including studies of diagnostic accuracy, particularly rigorous techniques involving the computation of sensitivity, specificity, and receiver operating characteristics/area under the curve.
- New upward extension of normative tables through age 21 years 11months.
- Offers a wide breadth of use with exceptional students, including those with intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, and giftedness.
- Provides a fair assessment of culturally and linguistically different examinees, including deaf and hard of hearing individuals.
- Reduces situational sources of test bias.
- Incorporates full colour stimuli, manipulatives, and pointing response modes to engage examinees.
