How do you all diagnose your students' math needs? I was wondering if there isn't a nice, extensive battery out there that examines and highlights the lower level skills as well as higher level skills. I'm thinking about my colleague who is a literacy specialist and tests students in various ways, usually in a timed fashion, for different literacy skills.
Also, does everyone use the TABE? Our job is to raise our students 2 grade levels on the TABE, so I struggle with which skills to prioritize. This is especially difficult to answer because of the "Applied Mathematics" section.
Any ideas, advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.
