Features and benefits

  • Measures an individual's academic strengths and weaknesses in key areas, including reading, writing, math, listening, concentration, memory, organization, time management, oral presentation, self-control, and anxiety.
  • Provides users with a comparative sense of their academic skills in relation to their peers using means, standard deviations, and percentile scores.
  • Helps identify individuals at risk for learning difficulties who should seek further assessment.
  • Helps identify individuals with other issues that affect learning, such as anxiety, memory, or functional problems like organization and procrastination.
  • Can be used with students in vocational schools, technical colleges, community colleges, 4-year colleges and universities, and graduate schools.
  • Suggests recommendations for interventions and accommodations for each scale and subscale weakness

Test structure

  • Features one self-report form that contains 120 items contributing to nine scales and 14 subscales. The scales and subscales contribute to an Overall Academic Risk score. Items are rated on a 5-point Likert scale.
  • Administration can be completed with pencil and paper or online from any computer 24/7 via PARiConnect.
  • Scoring and reporting is completed exclusively through PARiConnect, with a Student Feedback Report generated for the student and a Score Report generated for the test administrator.
  • Testing takes just 15 minutes.
  • As an A-level product, no special training is required to administer or score.

Technical information

  • Based on the Learning Difficulties Assessment (LDA), an online platform active from June 2011 to June 2015.
  • Normative sample (N = 981) consisted of students enrolled in postsecondary education who had not been diagnosed with or suspected of having a learning disorder.
  • Reliable: Average alpha coefficient for scales and subscales is .86.
  • Valid: Studies have found that the KLDA Overall Academic Risk score can successfully predict learning disability (LD)/ADHD diagnosis, attitude toward being academically successful, and self-reported LD severity.
