College of Education and Human Development - George Mason University

We also offer individual achievement testing, typically using the Kaufman Test of Academic Achievement—Third Edition (KTEA-3) Achievement testing provides information on an individual’s levels of academic achievement in various aspects of reading, writing, mathematics, and/or oral language relative to same age peers.

We give these tests for various reasons when gathering more information on a child’s academic skills is of importance. These assessments are not diagnostic and cannot indicate the presence or absence of a learning disability by themselves. They are also not required for applications to Advanced Academics Programs. The fee is $400.

In some instances, families opt for a combination of Intelligence Testing + Achievement Testing for a fee of $750. These tests are taken over two days. Again, this is not considered a comprehensive evaluation, is not diagnostic, and recommendations are limited. However, at times they are helpful for requirements of some schools or to gain an update on cognitive and academic skills on standardized tests.
