PEABODY INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT TEST
The Peabody is a standardized, nationally norm-referenced K-12 achievement test individually administered by a trained examiner with assessments completed in the following content areas: reading, math, spelling, science, social studies and humanities. The subtests and composite scores are calculated immediately. The test is oral in format and almost conversational in tone. The Peabody takes 60-90 minutes to administer, but the exam is not timed.
Each child is assessed using the material appropriate to their age and level of accomplishment, working toward higher material until they answer incorrectly a target number of consecutive items. This stopping point establishes their learning threshold, and errors in the critical range are subtracted from the peak score. This allows children to rise to their level of ability without restricting their test level to a grade-specific range.
Test administrators may vary in their fees, testing location, and availability. Please inquire specifically when setting your appointment. Testing can be done year round, although it is best to contact a tester in the summer or fall to ensure availability for the coming school year.
