    About This Product


    This popular achievement test is useful in identifying students for special education placement or remedial planning. It includes eight subtests, all relevant to the assessment of learning disabilities:

    • Listening Comprehension
    • Synonyms
    • Alphabet/Phonics/Word Identification
    • Reading Comprehension
    • Punctuation/Capitalization
    • Spelling
    • Mathematics Reasoning
    • Mathematics Calculation

    To reduce administration time, you can give the Punctuation/Capitalization, Spelling, and Mathematics Calculation subtests in small groups. In addition, any of the eight subtests can be administered independently and used diagnostically.

    The DAB-4 provides standard scores (M=10, SD=3 for the subtests and M=100, SD=15 for the composites), percentile ranks, and age and grade equivalents. Scores from the subtests can be combined to form five composites:

    • Spoken Language
    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Mathematics
    • Total Basic Academic Skills

    Normative data was collected from 2011 to 2013 and is based on a sample of 1,310 students. The sample is stratified by age relative to region, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic factors, and other critical variables.

    Easy to administer and score and free of gender, ethnic, and disability bias, the DAB-4 is an excellent resource for professionals concerned with the identification of learning problems, special education placement, and remedial planning.
