What Makes an Assessment Diagnostic?

These are deep assessments that ask additional questions to find out how the teacher should improve instruction for a student or students. Diagnostic assessments look beyond student achievement, to examine patterns of strengths and weaknesses and diagnose the WHY of student achievement and not just the WHAT.  Generally speaking short assessments are rarely very diagnostic.
