Helping you identify pupils with dyscalculic tendencies.
The Dyscalculia Screener is an assessment that identifies dyscalculic tendencies in pupils aged 5–16+ years and recommends intervention strategies to help them achieve their potential.
The 30 minute test is an ideal tool for screening an entire year group, or for screening those pupils showing some signs of difficulty. It can play an important part in helping both specialist and non-specialist teachers distinguish between those individuals who have poor maths attainment and those whose difficulties are associated with dyscalculia. The screener provides a true measure of a pupil’s facility with numbers through evaluating their ability to understand number size, simple addition and simple multiplication.
The assessment comprises six tests covering three areas, with two assessments for each: Ability, Attainment and Diagnostic.
