To this end, the test provides a standardised, diagnostic assessment which will help teachers to:

  • pinpoint the bottom 20% before problems become severe;
  • diagnose and profile each child’s strengths and weaknesses in early numeracy;

Description

The Basic Number Diagnostic test by Bill Gillham, profiles key aspects of developing numeracy – from reciting and writing numbers to simple addition and subtraction. Its main purpose is to show what a child can and cannot do, to determine specific teaching objectives and to follow up those children identified as needing learning support. To this end, the test provides a standardised, diagnostic assessment which will help teachers to:

  • pinpoint the bottom 20% before problems become severe;
  • diagnose and profile each child’s strengths and weaknesses in early numeracy;
  • match teaching activities and strategies to each child’s needs.

It is designed for individual use with children in the age range 5-7 and with older children experiencing difficulties with number skills. It takes 15 -25 minutes to administer and score and makes no demands on reading ability.

The teacher’s manual explains how to interpret and use the results, with half of the book devoted to ‘targeted’ teaching strategies and classroom activities.
