The Feifer Assessment of Mathematics (FAM™) is a comprehensive assessment of mathematics designed to examine the underlying neurodevelopmental processes that support the acquisition of proficient math skills. It is unique in that it helps you identify specific subtypes of dyscalculia to help inform intervention decision making.
You can choose to administer the full battery, only the subtests associated with an individual index, or only individual subtests.Examinees in prekindergarten take nine subtests, examinees in kindergarten to Grade 2 take 14 subtests, and examinees in Grade 3 to college take 18 subtests.
The FAM tells you why a student struggles in math so you can determine how to intervene.
The FAM™ yields three index scores representing each dyscalculia subtype (Verbal Index, Procedural Index, and Semantic Index) as well as a Total Index score that represents total test performance.
Reliable change and discrepancy scores can also be calculated.
The FAM and FAM-SF can both be scored online via PARiConnect, with both score and interpretive reports available.
FAM Interpretive Report
The online PARiConnect report provides scores for all 19 subtests and includes detailed interpretations of index, index discrepancy, and subtest scores along with targeted math interventions based on current research tailored to the student's age and FAM scores.
