Abstract

This study assesses number-related measures in elementary school as diagnostic tools for the prediction of later middle school mathematics difficulties. Predictor measures of students’ fraction concepts, fraction procedures, and whole number multiplication fact fluency were administered to students (N = 342) in fourth and fifth grades. Using a framework adapted from Youngstrom (2014), we identify a reliable fraction screener as a strong diagnostic tool for the prediction of students at-risk for later mathematics difficulties. All items on the fraction screener are available to the public and accessible for use in the classroom. Practitioners can use the screener to identify students who are in need of supplemental support to attain desired mathematics benchmarks.
