Suggestions for administering: In a special education /intervention setting, it may be helpful to read each question in the math assessment and allow students time to answer each question. In a small group/ one to one situation, you may conclude that students reading level/math ability warrant that students work at their own pace within an allotted time. This test can be given at the beginning of the year, the percentage of correct answers tabulated and given at the end of the year to determine growth.
