Features and Benefits

  • Takes a neurodevelopmental approach to mathematics assessment.
  • The FAM helps determine if an examinee has a math learning disability and also identifies the specific subtype of dyscalculia, which better informs decisions about appropriate interventions.
  • Comprises 19 individual subtests measuring various aspects of:
    – math fact retrieval
    – numeric and spatial memory
    – perceptual estimation skills
    – linguistic math concepts
    – core number sense development.
  • A separate Screening Form, ideal for progress monitoring, screens for dyscalculia and math learning disability and identifies the needs of at-risk students. The Screening Form is comprised of three subtests, one from each index.
  • Standardized on a national U.S. sample of 1,061.
