Not only is this a fantastic way to quickly assess math facts, it also saves a lot of paper. I'm going to use this right away in my 4th grade classroom. I'll bet there are other curriculum areas where this can be used.

I really like this idea. It keeps the levels private so the children aren't aware of who is behind and who is ahead. It is also efficient. I do many timed tests but never thought of using it this way. Thanks for sharing!

Also a great idea for any skill-based content area, such as World Languages. Although the goal is to have students all be on the same page, a few invariably begin to struggle with certain concepts. This is a great way to differentiate instruction and provide practice/remediation. Now the trick is to develop organized levels of language complexity just like the multiplication tables! Would work well within a standards-based grading (SBG) framework.
