Why use this resource?
This is one of a series of FIVE resources written utilising the Achievement Objectives as stated in Mathematics in the New Zealand Curriculum.
- MS1: Curriculum Level 1
- MS2: Curriculum Level 2
- MS3: Curriculum Level 3
- MS4: Curriculum Level 4
- MS5: Curriculum Level 5
These resources have been designed to assist you to determine the mathematical ability of a pupil at the beginning of a year and then reassess later in the year to measure the ‘value added’.
There are TWO types of assessments offered. One covers the four basic Numeracy Facts appropriate for each level. The second assessment covers ALL five strands from within ONE level of the curriculum. There are 2 parallel assessments prepared for each type of assessment. This gives the opportunity to pre-test and post-test pupils.
The data you collect about each pupil or the class can be used in several ways, such as deciding on grouping arrangements within the class, highlighting areas of concern or strength for each pupil and helping you to decide on the teaching programme for a term or part of the year.
Pupil Record Sheets are included which can be used to record results and note the ‘value added’ for each pupil.
This series of resources has been written with you in mind. I am sure you will find this resource easy to use and of benefit to you and your classes.
A series of THREE complementary resources are also available, entitled Mathematics Multi-Level Assessment Series.
