Screening for Mathematics Difficulties in K-3 Students. Second Edition
Gersten, Russell; Clarke, Benjamin S.; Haymond, Kelly; Jordan, Nancy C.
Center on Instruction
Since 2007, when this technical report was originally issued, the assessment field has made considerable progress in developing valid and reliable screening measures for early mathematics difficulties. This update includes new research published since 2007. It focuses on valid and reliable screening measures for students in kindergarten and first grade. However, the authors also examined data on screening tests for second and third grades because the goal of screening is to identify students who might struggle to learn mathematics during their initial school years. Appended are: (1) Summary of the Evidence Base on Early Screening Measures as of December 2010; and (2) Procedure for Reviewing the Literature on Early Screening in Mathematics. (Contains 5 tables, 1 figure and 5 footnotes.) [For the first edition, "Screening for Mathematics Difficulties in K-3 Students," see ED521575.]
