The Kaufman Survey of Early Academic and Language Skills (K-SEALS) is a test designed for students in grades PreK-1. Through the vocabulary subtest, number, letter & words subtest, and articulation subtest, the assessment measures school readiness and can identify gifted students. Educators and trained professionals in schools, speech and language clinics, and medical agencies can administer the test.
