Dyscalculia Online Test

Recommended Posts

RiRi

Does anyone know of a good online dyscalculia test? I want to take one to see if I might have that.

Here's one. http://app.educational-psychologist.co.uk/screening/dyscalculic/

All of my answers were correct, but I took more time than average, because of concentration issues and because I need time to understand and think about the question. Also, I always need to double-check. I had this problem at school, too, I was always slow to finish any task, and it was a problem for timed exams.

Edit: I passed (I don't have dyscalculia).

I took less than 11 minutes to complete it, but I put I would be guessing for a lot of them. :/ I got risk of dyscalculia.

I took it a second time with 2 minutes to complete it, but I still got risk of dyscalculia.

I took it a third time and still got risk of dyscalculia.

I think I actually may have dyscalculia...... :wacko:

@Catman2018 That's interesting. Truthfully, I don't know what dyscalculia entails. I've researched it before and what the person said resonated with me. Like having difficulty reading analog clocks. I do struggle with it, but I am able to read them. Also mental math, I suck at that. I couldn't do a problem in my head. If having dyscalculia basically means that a person isn't good at math, then I definitely have dyscalculia.

I think I read somewhere that you're good with computer stuff/computer programming. Are you good at math?

Yes, I am good at computer and IT stuff/and SQL, and HTML with PHP programming. I am okay in math. Some of the questions I took random shots in the dark I got some of the right.

@RiRi Why? Just curious, RiRi?

Yes, just curious if being good at math is related to being good at programming or if it helps. And if being good at math is related to not having dyscalculia. I probably need to research more.

You know what I didn't even think about with the math and computer connection. For example, in Access you can have a calculated field in database tables and queries.  I am also a Microsoft Office Specialist in Access 2016. I got certified in Access about a month ago.

I don't know what access is, is it a program? Sorry, I'm clueless with programming/computer stuff of that sort. I wonder if @Miss Chief is good at math. I read that she's also good with computer stuff (don't know what to call it).

Access is a database program from Microsoft in the Microsoft Office suite.

I don't know what that even looks like. :lol: I know databases have a lot of numbers though.

For the dyscalculia test did you know any of the conversions? I failed all of those, but truthfully, if I were to take a math test and I had time to study for it, I don't think I'd do too bad in it. I don't know why that test based themselves on whether people know what unit is equal to another.

I am good at math, I know I don't have dyscalculia which I have always understood to be a numerical form of dyslexia, so instead of struggling with letters, words and language you struggle with numbers and math.

I did the test to give you a point of comparison, my results are below:

Pass - 4 minutes - You scored well and the time taken suggests that your skills are fluent. Unless you have serious concerns that your mathematical skills are significantly lower than other skills, you have no need for a diagnostic assessment of your number skills. 

I will admit I was also watching something while I did the test so I probably could have done it faster, I got one answer 'incorrect' although that isn't really right since the question was 'Do you have difficulty managing money?' and that issue is as a result of ADHD ;)

I got 17/20 but its when doing Accountancy tasks it goes pear-shaped for me, so more likely a sequencing issue as I'm actually good at the actual arithmetic.

I'm looking for work at present, and would happily apply for an Accountancy support role if not for the issue just highlighted. So frustrating!

Mine gave me a 'pass' and I had 20/20, but it told me that I must be out of practice because I took a lot of time to finish. I guess I have two choices - either I do it fast and get some wrong, or I take as long as I need and have all correct. I always prefer the latter. I hate making mistakes.
