SY022: Assessment to Intervention for Math: Putting Theory into Practice

Tuesday, February 18, 2014 10:00 AM–11:20 AM

Description:

The symposium will include three papers that examine math assessments. The studies examined (a) the decision accuracy for math assessments in light of efficiency, (b) validity of using object arrays in counting-related assessment tasks, and (c) the instructional utility of a conceptual understanding assessment for students with math difficulties. Participants will be able to implement time efficient math screenings, understand the effect of number sense on early assessments, and assess conceptual understanding for intervention.
