      Hi Gina.

      I guess it all depends on what type of assessment you are looking for. Is it fluency that you are testing? If so, you might try some of the Rocket math materials or something as simple as that. Are you looking for major diagnostic testing? In my district we use NWEA's MAP testing. Could you clarify what type of assessment you are looking for specifically? That might help me find a better answer for you.

      Thanks,
      Michelle

        I agree that it depends on what type of assessment you need. I will answer for diagnostic instruments used to determine student strengths, weaknesses and next steps.

        We have used the Early Numeracy Interview or Mathematics Online Interview from Australia/Math Recovery. I like Section A Counting, Section B Place Value and Section C Strategies for Addition and Subtraction.

        We also use Keymath 3- Diagnostic Assessment. For puzzling students with inconsistent results, we've also used PAL-M Math Process Assessment of the Learner.

          Most of the math adoptions will have a diagnostic piece to it, you may want to look into that. Our school uses the Math recovery test but you have to be trained in that and they are copyrighted. They are amazing though.
