The Peabody Individual Achievement Test-Revised-Normative Update (PIAT-R/NU) is an assessment test designed for use by children with cognitive, learning, communication, or speech disabilities. This assessment measures individual academic achievement across six subtests. It can be used to identify specific learning disabilities, and its multiple-choice format allows a pointing response for most items. Only those items within the student’s range of difficulty are administered. The subtests include General Information (100 verbal items that assess general knowledge); Reading Recognition (100 items that measure recognition of printed letters and the ability to read words aloud); Reading Comprehension (82 items that measure reading comprehension by requiring the student to choose one of four pictures that best illustrate a sentence); Written Expression (Level 1 tests pre-writing skills and Level II requires the student to write a story about a picture); Mathematics (100 multiple choice items that test knowledge and application of math concepts and facts); and Spelling (100 multiple choice items that measure recognition of correct word spelling). The PIAT-R/NU Complete Kit includes four easels for use in test administration, 50 combined test record and written expression booklets, a manual, and a carrying bag.
