Assessments

It is essential that students practice and retain number sense and computation skills as they move through the secondary mathematics curriculum. One way to accomplish this is through the use of assessments where students track their own progress on the assessed skills. The resources below include computation assessments tied to the core curriculum and the skills assessed by the AccuPlacer assessment that is used by many colleges and universities for math course placement. Click here for a description of the topic of each assessment item.
The most powerful part of these assessments is to have students track their own progress and try to improve on the last score. Students can set individual goals and work toward mastery. These assessments are an adaptation of student progress monitoring. For more information about student progress monitoring, click here.

Suggested way to use these assessments:

  • Decide how frequently you want to assess your students. The recommended schedule is either every week or every two weeks.
  • Alternate between computation assessments and application assessments. 
  • No calculators
  • Time students for 5 minutes then have them switch writing utensils and continue. You can give them time to complete the assessment or just give them 5 more minutes. Once you decide how you will do it, do it the same way each time. 
  • Have the students correct their own assessment and graph the results – both the timed number correct and the total correct.
  • Assessments are in MS Word format (DOCX) and may be edited as needed by the teacher.
