Overview

Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to confidently conduct Cross-Battery Assessment

The Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) Cross-Battery assessment approach (also referred to as the XBA approach) is a time-efficient assessment method grounded solidly in contemporary psychometric theory and research. The XBA approach systematically integrates data across cognitive and achievement batteries, enabling mental health professionals to expand their traditional assessments to more comprehensively address referral concerns. This approach also includes guidelines for identification of specific learning disabilities and assessing cognitive capabilities of culturally and linguistically diverse individuals.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this volume is designed to help busy mental health professionals quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of psychological assessment instruments. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as "Test Yourself" questions that help you to gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

Essentials of Cross-Battery Assessment, Second Edition is updated to include the latest edition of cognitive ability tests, including KABC-II, SB5, WISC®-IV, WPPSI-III, DAS-II®, WAIS®-III, and WJ III COG as well as the most current comprehensive achievement tests, such as WJ III ACH, KTEA-II, and WIAT®-II. A new chapter demonstrates the use of the XBA approach in assessing learning disabilities in a manner consistent with the recent reauthorization of IDEA. This book now includes a CD-ROM that contains three programs that allow you to enter data and review results: the Cross-Battery Assessment Data Management and Interpretive Assistant (XBA DMIA) v1.0; the Specific Learning Disability (SLD) Assistant v1.0; and the Culture-Language Interpretive Matrix (C-LIM) v1.0.
