This product is a 60 question beginning of the year assessment aligned to the 4th grade Common Core math standards. Most of the questions require students to show initial understanding of mathematical concepts. The standards for each question are written underneath the answer line for each question. The questions are fill-in-the blank rather than multiple choice. I have found that students are more likely to attempt problems if they have to write their own answer. I have used this assessment as a beginning, midpoint, and end of the year assessment to show student growth.
