The RIAS-2 is an objective, reliable, and comprehensive test of intelligence and its major components. The new RIAS-2 Record Form with Spanish Responses is a culturally fair assessment that allows bilingual and English language learners the option of answering items in Spanish. 

Features and benefits

  • Offers correct Spanish-answer options for the RIAS-2 Guess What, Verbal Reasoning, and What’s Missing subtests.
  • Examinees can provide English or Spanish responses. Spanish dialects most commonly spoken in the U.S., including Mexican, Central American, Caribbean, Colonial Spanish, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Venezuelan, Columbian, and Argentinian, are included.  
  • Includes the new Language Acculturation Meter that provides a framework for interpreting test results by documenting years of education in Spanish and/or English, everyday language usage, and self-identified English comprehension. 
  • Aids in cognitive assessment of Spanish/English bilingual and English language learners. 
  • A new manual supplement describes the diligent translation process for the Spanish responses.

Test structure

  • Includes two supplemental speeded processing subtests (one verbal, one nonverbal).
  • All eight subtests can be completed in less than an hour.
  • Includes reliable change scores and ability-achievement discrepancies with the Academic Achievement Battery (AAB).

Technical information

  • Normative data (N = 2,154) represent 2012 U.S. Census statistics.
  • Data were gathered from 12 clinical groups: stroke, dementia, hearing impaired, intellectual disability disorder (child and adult), TBI (child and adult), learning disabilities (child and adult), ADHD (child and adult), and gifted.
