This study was aimed to validate a digital tool for diagnosing mathematical proficiency in the Number and Algebra strand of 1,504 Thai seventh-grade students. Researchers employed a multidimensional approach, an extension of the Rasch model to measure its quality. A design-based research method was adopted to create the diagnostic tool which consists of four components, namely register system, input data, process system, and diagnostic feedback report. The diagnostic framework consists of 18 tasks encompassing 11 and 7 tasks in the Mathematical Procedures Dimension and Structure of the Observed Learning Outcome dimension, respectively. The results revealed that there is internal structure ev..
