Abstract: The aim of the present study was to assess the predictive capacity of several of the most relevant cognitive skills in the academic field that were evaluated using Differential and General Skills Battery(BADyG-E2r). Particular attention was focused on the variables that need to be overcome regarding the curricular objectives related to pass/fail grading as evaluated by the teachers in the instrumental disciplines of Mathematics and Language. The psychometric battery was applied to the 3rd year students in prim… Show more

“…Second, since only one gold standard or criterion measure was used in this study, the results presented should be interpreted as “predicting a predictor”. The Sn‐BADyG measure is widely used for the Spanish population (e.g., Fernández et al, 2017; Lechuga et al, 2016; Navarro Soria et al, 2020); however, it is focused on students' ability to solve arithmetic problems and manage quantitative concepts with speed and accuracy (i.e., fluency). Hence, as gold standards might modify the technical adequacy of screening measures, future research should include other criterion measures that involve a more extensive array of math skills.…”

“…Students' final score is the sum of correct answers minus errors. The Sn‐BADyG measure has been widely used with the Spanish population (e.g., Fernández et al, 2017; Lechuga et al, 2016; Navarro Soria et al, 2020). Navarro Soria et al (2020) reported that the Sn‐BADyG measure was a significant predictor ( p < 0.001) for no repeating third grade.…”

“…Similarly, when the area to be predicted is closely related to language management, Numerical Aptitude may be displaced to third position, with Logical Reasoning Aptitude taking second place. The conclusions reached by these previous investigations and other more current investigations, is that an important part of the learning difficulties in the academic context find their etiology in the cognitive aptitudes that are required for the development of traditional school activities (Bennett et al, 2000;Pérez et al, 2005;Miñano and Castejón, 2008;Robles and Vázquez, 2014;Navarro-Soria, 2016;Navarro-Soria et al, 2020).…”

“…In this way, a teaching team would be able to detect the problem and intervene before it fully presents itself, by applying measures that eliminate possible deficiencies in student adaptation to the academic context (Grañeras et al, 2011;Prior et al, 2011;Geary and VanMarie, 2016). For this purpose, these objective indicators of learning difficulties should be detected during the first years of schooling (Alloway and Alloway, 2010;Navarro-Soria and González-Gómez, 2010;Murray and Harrison, 2011;Schmitt et al, 2012;Peng and Fuchs, 2016), since it would facilitate an individualized intervention and the initiation of those psycho-pedagogical resources, which currently act on the problem from a welfare perspective (Rogowsky et al, 2013), rather than from a preventive perspective (Bergman et al, 2011;Raver et al, 2011;Blair and Raver, 2014;Blair et al, 2016;Di Lieto et al, 2017).…”
