The DAB-3 is a revision of one of the most popular and useful individual tests of school achievement ever made. The DAB-3 uses 14 short subtests to identify a child's strengths and weaknesses across several areas of achievement. The DAB-3 includes a supplemental manual enabling the examiner to probe student responses on the standardized test. The purpose of probing is to identify the thinking processes and problem-solving strategies that result in both correct and incorrect responses.
