The Powerful Formative Assessments for Grades K-2

Assessing Math Concepts is the only formative math assessments for grades K-2 that truly uncovers students’ knowledge of key math concepts.

This series of assessments goes beyond “getting right answers” to reveal students’ true understanding and gives teachers the information they need to plan for instruction for each student in their classrooms. Acclaimed author Kathy Richardson identified the “Critical Learning Phases” that young learners move through as they develop an understanding of the foundational mathematical ideas they need to know.

The assessments follow the stages of students’ growth through these phases and determine the level of thinking each student has reached to help teachers ensure each student is working at the most appropriate level for maximum growth and understanding.
