The Stanford Binet (Early SB5) is individually administered and tailored to assess the general thinking and reasoning skills of children aged two years to seven years, three months. The complete scale, the Full-Scale IQ, consists of 10 subtests. There is one non-verbal subtest for each of the five factors and one verbal subtest for each of the five factors.
The Verbal IQ score provides a measure of the cognitive skills required to solve the items in the five verbal subtests. The Full Scale Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is derived from the sum of all the tasks in the Early SB5.
The Early SB5 Full Scale score is one way to view a child's overall thinking and reasoning skills. As a battery of cognitive tests, the SB5 advances the assessment of strengths and weaknesses in the cognitive processes of students who may be evaluated for learning disabilities. The SB5 supports the early prediction of emerging learning disabilities in children as young as four years old.
