Screening for Mathematics Difficulties in K-3 Students - Second Edition

Developed By: Center on Instruction

This second edition of Screening for Mathematics Difficulties in K-3 Students which was originally published in 2007 updates the document with new research in the assessment field in developing valid and reliable screening measures for early mathematics difficulties. It focuses on valid and reliable screening measures for students in kindergarten and first grade but also examines data on screening tests for second and third graders, since the goal of screening is to identify students who might struggle to learn mathematics during their initial school years. This document supports using screening data to identify students struggling in mathematics for implementation of School Improvement Grants (SIG) requirements.
