The FAM is a comprehensive assessment of mathematics designed to examine the underlying neurodevelopmental processes that support the acquisition of proficient math skills. It not only helps determine if an examinee has a math learning disability (MLD) but also identifies the specific subtype of dyscalculia, which better informs decisions about appropriate interventions.
Features and benefits include:
Offers grade-based normative data. Yields three index scores representing each discalculia subtype as well as a Total index score that represents total test performance. Offers age and grade equivalents and percentiles for subtest scores, and confidence intervals, percentile ranks, z scores, and normal curve equivalents (NCEs) for index scores. Subtest and index scores are scaled to the familiar IQ metric. Standardized on a sample of 1,061 examinees in prekindergarten to college drawn from more than 30 states and based on 2013 U.S. Census statistics.
