Assessment and Remediation of Mathematics. Academic Assessment and Remediation of Adults with Learning Disabilities: A Resource Series for Adult Basic Education Teachers.
Hoy, Cheri A.; Gregg, K. Noel
This publication, the sixth of seven booklets intended for adult education teachers of students with learning disabilities, reviews assessment and remediation considerations in mathematics. Observation of math disabilities is discussed in terms of social and general academic environment, calculation activities, quantitative concepts, and applied problem solving. The remediation section lists instructional suggestions for specific difficulties in calculation (such as remembering math facts and correctly sequencing multidigit numbers), concept learning (including understanding mathematical symbols, remembering and reading mathematical abbreviations, and generalizing quantitative concepts), and applied problem solving (such as using correct operations, sequencing solution steps, organizing problem data, and determining whether the solution is correct). Following a brief discussion of the role of calculators a list of materials and references is provided. (CL)
