This resource is one of a series of three resources written utilising the achievement objectives as stated in Mathematics in the New Zealand Curriculum. These resources have been designed to assist you to determine the curriculum level a pupil is working at, through a series of graduated questions covering 3 consecutive levels on the Mathematics in the New Zealand curriculum.
There are 3 parallel assessments prepared for each strand of the curriculum, giving you a total of 15 assessments. 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.
