The KeyMath Diagnostic Arithmetic Test: Use with Learning Disabled Students.
Tinney, Franklin A.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the KeyMath Diagnostic Arithmetic Test and the California Arithmetic Test when used with children identified as having specific learning disabilities. The samples consisted of children in grades one through three enrolled in a diagnostic, prescriptive, remedial Resource Room program for children with specific learning disabilities. These children were from three of the eight schools housing the program. Both tests were administered in late September and early October and again in May. Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients were computed for each pair of variables, as were 95% confidence intervals. The validity coefficients and the lower limits of the 95% confidence intervals were significant at least at the 0.05 level. The results suggest that there is a significant positive relationship between the KeyMath and the California tests for the learning disabled population under study. (Author/SD)
