This is an initial pre-assessment for 1st grade. It is based on the new Common Core Math Standards. Parts two and three are performance-based assessments and do not necessarily have to be administered. They have been included as part of the test due to the fact that the Common Core standards put a great deal of emphasis on performance-based tasks and level of rigor.
An end-of-year post-assessment is also available for use during the last month or two of school.
