## Find the true statements.

 Many mathematics tests assess both computation and problem-solving skills. Mathematics measures may evaluate application skills such as time, money, and measurement. The difference between informal mathematics inventories and criterion-referenced tests is that inventories tend to measure skill domains thoroughly, rather than assessing only a few representative skills. The four most common types of computation errors are incorrect operations, incorrect number facts, incorrect algorithms, and random errors. Clinical math interviews are used to determine how well students perform when they are provided with computational aids such as calculators.

## When assessing mathematics performance within the context of the classroom, you should determine whether the curriculum stresses _____________ or _____________ skills.

## If Julia shows average intellectual performance, in what standard score range would you expect her mathematics scores to fall?

 Less than standard score 70 Standard score 70 to 84 Standard score 85 to 115 Standard score 116 to 130 Greater than standard score 130

## If the special education team finds that a student shows poor performance in mathematics computation, what conclusion can be drawn?

 His special education program should focus on improving problem-solving skills. His special education program should emphasize the use of computational skills in problems concerning time, money, and measurement. A possible educational goal would be to increase accuracy in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The student should be taught in the general classroom and be provided with a calculator.
