Abstract

The Kaufman Adolescent and Adult Intelligence Test (KAIT) was developed by Alan S. Kaufman and Nadeen L. Kaufman in 1993 and is an individually administered intelligence test for individuals ranging from 11 to 85-plus years of age. It has a strong theoretical base integrating Horn and Cattell's concept of fluid and crystallized intelligence, Luria and Golden's notion of frontal lobe planning ability, and Piaget's construct of formal operational thought (Smith, 2001).
