Abstract
Learnimation proposes the research and development of a reliable and valid Universal Design Model of a web-based multimedia diagnostic tool to be utilized in the assessment of specific cognitive deficits in elementary school students with math disabilities. This diagnostic instrument is to be based on validated education research and cognitive frameworks in the emerging fields of cognitive science and math disabilities. It will be an animated on line assessment environment designed to tease out a handful of the sub-skill deficiencies in students with math disabilities. It will suppor several disability extensions including vision and hearing impairments. This diagnostic tool will genereate actionable information to assist educators in developing academic intervention strategies and in targeting skill-specific cognitive development remediation for students struggling with learning mathmatics.
