Validation d'une batterie d'évaluation écologique du nombre chez les collégiens de 3ème

Abstract : The transfer of number-processing abilities into daily life represents a major challenge for adolescents suffering from math learning disorder. To alleviate the lack of an ecological assessment tool for these skills among French-speaking adolescents, a new Ecological Assessment Battery for Numbers for Adolescents (EABNado) has recently been standardized and normalized with junior high school students. This study aims to demonstrate the first elements of validity. 9 dyscalculic adolescents enrolled in 9th grade were thus assessed with the EABNado and 6 with the Examath 8-15 as well. Their complaint about number-processing, their academic results, their appreciation of the test as well as their level of anxiety were collected. The results obtained at the EABNado were compared to the standard and correlated with the complaint to study the construct validity of the test. The concurrent validity was studied by looking for a correlation between the EABNado results and other standards (the Examath 8-15 results and academic results). Finally, the appreciation of the tool and of the anxiety aroused by this test made it possible to study its face validity. If the latter could be demonstrated, the construct validity could not be fully confirmed, only proof of a significant difference with the control population having been provided. The concurrent validity has not been established, the link with a reference test having not been verified in particular. Future studies should therefore allow certain psychometric qualities to be deepened and continue the process of accumulating evidence aimed at validating the tool.
