•There are a variety of ways to assess students’ mastery of addition and subtraction facts. Timed tests are not only anxiety inducing, but do not accurately portray all students’ abilities with their facts do to a variety of factors including: processing speed, fine motor control, blocked working memory due to time constraints, etc.
Therefore, this resource is to provide alternative ways to see what facts your students can recall automatically vs. have to figure out.
The assessments are separated into concept & strategy categories.
• Letter to parents about how to practice the addition and subtraction facts at home. Also includes recommended websites and apps for parents to use at home.
• Paper and pencil assessments that can be given individually, in small groups or whole class. I prefer small groups so I can see what the students are doing during the assessment and how accurately they are noting whether they are fluent or not.
• Interview assessment records: While this takes a lot of time to individually assess, it provides excellent information about how the students answer.
• “Flash Cards” by concept/strategy to print
• Record keeping sheets
• Parent Communication Goal Sheets
I've also made practice sheets by strategy & number for all single digit addition and subtraction facts: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Addition-Subtraction-Fact-Practice-Supplement-2738053
