Our Competition: Other Diagnostic Math Tests

Each of these tests measure mathematical abilities of middle-school children. However, each provides fewer diagnostic scores than the DT-PAM, and some provide only one overall score. The DT-PAM was developed to provide more detailed information, with 21 diagnostic areas in comparable testing time. The cost for these alternative tests are at least double the cost of the DT-PAM.
