(DAB-3) Diagnostic Achievement Battery 3
BY PHYLLIS L. NEWCOMER
This popular achievement test is useful in identifying students for special education placement or remedial planning. It includes 14 subtests, all relevant to the assessment of learning disabilities:
- Story Comprehension
- Grammatic Completion
- Contextual Language
- Alphabet/Word Knowledge
- Math Reasoning
- Reading Comprehension
- Math Calculation
- Story Construction
- Phonemic Analysis
To reduce administration time, you can give the Spelling, Capitalization, Punctuation, and Math Calculation subtests in small groups. In addition, any of the 14 subtests can be administered independently and used diagnostically.
Easy to administer and score and free of gender, ethnic, and disability bias, the DAB-3 is an excellent resource for professionals concerned with the identification of learning problems, special education placement, and remedial planning.
