The Primary Maths Assessment Tool is for teachers of Levels 1 to 4 Mathematics in the New Zealand Curriculum. It is designed to assess the intent of the mathematics curriculum by assessing students’ ability to use mathematics to solve problems. It uses carefully designed and sequenced questions to tease out and record each student’s level of understanding in maths against the Mathematics Learning Progressions and curriculum levels.
The data gathered will assist teachers to group students according to their learning needs and can be used for planning and developing appropriate maths programmes with ‘where next’ statements and links to learning opportunities in Pearson Mathematics.
Complementary to this assessment tool are Level 2, 3 and 4 Wilkie Way Assessment Screens for Mathematical Knowledge and Skills, also with ‘where next’ information and resource links to Pearson Mathematics and Wilkie Way. Both of these assessment tools are included in beagle, a cloud-based, New Zealand app that transforms your data into powerful insights - driving smarter instruction to raise student achievement.
The online resources contain printable full-colour versions of the appendices in the book, including a version of the questions laid out for printing and binding as an A5 booklet, along with tables showing how each of the Pearson Mathematics books align with the Figure it Out resources.
