Author: Phyllis L. Newcomer, PhD

  • Reading, Writing, Math
  • Individual or Group Administration
  • Ages 6 through 14
  • Norm-Referenced
  • Qualification Level B

Description
This new, streamlined version of this popular achievement test is useful for identifying students' strengths and weaknesses across areas of academic achievement. The DAB-4 can be used to identify students who are significantly below their peers in basic academic skills, determine the particular kinds of component strengths and weaknesses that individual students possess, document students progress in specific areas as a consequence of special intervention programs, and conduct research studies of academic achievement.

The DAB4 has now been pared to eight subtests instead of 14 to shorten administration time:

  • Listening Comprehension
  • Synonyms
  • Alphabet/Phonics/Word Identification
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Punctuation/Capitalization
  • Spelling
  • Mathematics Reasoning
  • Mathematics Calculation

    Composite Scores
  • Spoken Language
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Mathmatics
  • Total Basic Academic Skills

    Administration and Scoring
    Administration time is 6090 minutes. Scores from the subtests are used for five composite scores: Spoken Language; Reading; Writing; Mathematics; and Total Basic Academic Skills. Standard scores, percentile ranks, and age/grade equivalents are provided.
