This is a series of multiplication and division basic facts quizzes. I call them Level A. This is how I use them in my math class:
1. All students receive the first quiz and are given 2 minutes to complete all 20 questions. Since this is a test of math fluency, the time constraint is key here. The students either know their facts, or they don't (Analyzing their work can be very informative for the teacher -- seeing who is fluent, who is accurate but not yet fluent, and what strategies they are using, etc.).
2. At the end of 2 minutes, tests are collected. Students are allowed to get 1 wrong in order to still be considered proficient (95% or higher is proficient).
3. One week later, give the second test in the batch and follow the same protocol. Students who scored proficient on the first test AND this test, have passed Level A and are considered proficient in multiplication and division fact fluency. Students who did not score proficient on any, or only 1 test so far, must move onto the third test in the batch, fourth, and so on and so forth.
*Students must pass TWO tests IN A ROW to be considered proficient on Level A.
The students love when it is time to take another one of these tests. They enjoy the timed aspect of it, and feel motivated to learn their facts. I have created a football themed data wall in my room, where students get to move their footballs closer to the end zone when they become proficient on this test.
