Diagnostic Achievement Battery-3 [DAB-3]

Phyllis L. Newcomer

The revision of the DAB uses fourteen short subtests to determine a child's strengths and weaknesses across several areas of achievement. Scores from these subtests can be combined to form eight composites: Total Achievement, Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Spoken Language, and Written Language. The DAB-3 generates standard scores (M=10, SD-3 for subtests, and M=100, SD=15 for the composites), percentile ranks, and age/grade equivalents. The test was standardized on 1,534 students in 13 states. The sample is representative of the national population with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, geographic region, and urban/rural residence.
Testing time is approximately 45 minutes on an individual basis for ages 6 years through 13 years.

School Motivation and Learning Strategies Inventory [SMALSI]

Kathy Stroud, Cecil Reynolds

Measure the skills related to academic success early in a student's school career with this new test! Designed for both special education and general education students, this self-report inventory assesses 10 primary constructs associated with academic motivation, learning strategies, and study habits - 7 focusing on student strengths:study strategies, note taking/listening skills. reading and comprehension strategies, writing/research skills, test-taking strategies, organizational techniques, time management- 3 focusing on student liabilities: low academic motivation, test anxiety, concentration/academic difficulties. Scores from these scales provide enough information to identify problems that interfere with academic development. An Inconsistent Responding Index is also included as a validity measure. The SMALSI is available in two forms. The Child Form (147 items) is for students 8 years through 12 years of age;the Teen Form (170 items) is for 13- to 18-year olds. Both forms are written at a third-grade reading level and can be completed in about 20 to 30 minutes.

Test of Academic Achievement Skills - Revised [TAAS-R]

Morrison F. Gardner

The revision of the Test of Academic Achievement Skills has strengthened all of the original subtests and includes a new subtest - Oral Reading Stories and Comprehension. In addition to the new subtest, the revision includes the following subtests: Spelling, Letter Reading and Word Reading, Listening Comprehension, Oral Reading Stories and Comprehension, and Arithmetic.
The revision combines the two age groups (4 years through 5 years 11 months and 6 years through 11 years 11 months to one age group - 5 years through 14 years 11 months), extends the upper age levels from 11 years 11 months through 14 years 11 months, has revised norms, provides standard scores and T-scores in addition to scaled scores, percentile ranks, and stanines, adds new items to and deleted some old items from some of the subtests, changes statistics, and compares normal academic achieving children with learning handicapped children.
The results obtained from the TAAS-R will provide users of the test with information about a child's academic progress in kindergarten and his or her readiness for first grade, will provide the users of the test with information about a child's academic progress in the eigth grade and his or her readiness for ninth grade, and will provide users of the test with information about other children ages six to fifteen years (grades one through eight) and their readiness for the next grade level or the need for possible remediation.
This test can be administered individually in 30 to 40 minutes. Scoring takes approximately 15 minutes.

Young Children's Achievement Test [YCAT]

Wayne P. Hresko, Pamela K. Peak, Shelley R. Herron, Deanna L. Bridges

The Young Children's Achievement Test (YCAT) represents a major improvement in the early identification of children ages 4-0 through 7-11 who are at risk for school failure. It yields an overall Early Achievement standard score, and individual subtest standard scores for General Information, Reading, Writing, Mathematics, and Spoken Language. The individual subtests for General Information, Reading, Writing, Mathematics, and Spoken Language can be given independent of each other, leading to flexible testing sessions. Standard scores (with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15), percentiles, and age equivalents are provided for both the subtests and the composite.

Testing time is approximately 25 to 45 minutes on an individual basis.
