DIAGNOSTIC ACHIEVEMENT BATTERY
by Phyllis Newcomer
The DAB-4 is a revision of one of the most popular individual achievement tests available. Its 8 subtests identify students’ strengths and weaknesses across important areas of school achievement. A supplemental manual shows how to probe student responses to obtain information about students’ thinking processes and problem- solving strategies.
The four primary uses of the DAB-4 are 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 result of special intervention programs, and conduct research studies of academic achievement.
