- Classworks Mathematics Universal Screeners do not diagnose dyscalculia. We identify whether additional testing for dyscalculia is recommended based on the student's performance on early indicators.

- The Classworks Universal Screener is specifically designed to determine a studentâ€™s risk for mathematical difficulty and the need for intervention. Once the Universal Screener has been administered to students in grades K - 2 teachers review overall and domain-specific scores.

- The table below shows specific indicators correlated to the specific skill domains from the Classworks Universal Screener.

- When formatting the Universal Screener Student Summary report, educators have the option to include a statement about the possible need for evaluation of a mathematics learning disability.

- Students scoring below the 25th percentile on the skills that may be early indicators of dyscalculia are recommended for additional testing

- Dyscalculia is a learning challenge that causes students to have trouble with math. People with this math learning challenge may have difficulty understanding arithmetic concepts and doing addition, multiplication, and measuring. Dyscalculia can make it hard for a person to understand math concepts or do tasks that involve math.
- Often, individuals with dyscalculia struggle with tasks that require them to determine patterns, compare quantities or measurements, and use numbers for counting.
- Individual students who struggle with number sense, mathematical processing, and computational operation test items are identified and teachers work with school teams to develop support plans.
