New Assessments

 

We have added 57 new assessments to Mathletics – created by Canadian Teachers!  You can quickly and easily access a bank of standardized assessments that will be relevant to your students.  As the assessments are completed online, each teacher can assign an appropriate assessment to each student.  Once the assessment is completed, it will be automatically marked for real-time feedback between student and teacher.  Additionally,  reports are available for your review.  These assessments, marks and reporting will help you to determine the ability levels for each of your students.  Once determined, you can place your students into appropriate ability groups within Mathletics. We’ve been working hard to ensure that Mathletics continues to be a valuable and relevant resource for teachers and students. New assessments include the Canadian Math Assessments and the LCSD Assessments.

The Canadian Math Assessments (CMA) are currently available for grades 3 – 9 and grade 2 will be uploaded soon. The CMAs are summative assessments and are ideal for all math strands.

The LCSD Assessments are available in both English and French for many grades, and are intended to be used as a diagnostic tool. Currently we have multiple versions of the English assessments available from K – 9 and multiple versions of the French assessments available for grades 2 – 9.

See below instructions on how to access these assessments.
