Abstract: 
Accuracy is essential in the diagnosis of mathematical difficulties faced by students if we are to intervene and provide appropriate remediation. Yet often times, diagnosis of students' mathematical difficulties are assessed merely through
their written work or monthly assessments only. This article discusses the
inadequacies of merely assessing students' written exercises and highlights the
necessity to include a personal interview on the mathematical concept with the student concerned. Some essential interview strategies such as illustrations,
redirection, generalization and questions are included to assist teachers gain
insights into their students' mathematical understanding. Suggestions in administering an interview for various mathematical concepts are also included.
