DIAGNOSTIC ACHIEVEMENT BATTERY
by Phyllis Newcomer
Copyright © 2001
The Diagnostic Achievement Battery-Third Edition (DAB3) uses 14 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 test was standardized on 1,534 students in 13 states. The DAB3 includes a supplemental manual enabling the examiner to probe student responses to identify the thinking processes and problem-solving strategies that result in both correct and incorrect responses.
