ONLINE PLACEMENT TESTS

Take these online placement tests to understand your student's current level of maths mastery and help determine
which level of Math-U-See will be appropriate for your student.

The placement tests are a diagnostic tool and
will help you to:

  • Identify your students current level of maths mastery
  • Discover any gaps in their understanding to help plan additional support as they progress
  • Select the right level to begin the Math-U-See program for the most benefit

Every student is unique in their sequential understanding of maths.

Therefore, the placement tests are designed to determine current level of maths mastery, irrespective of your student’s age, or grade level.

PRE-QUALIFYING QUESTIONS

If the following questions apply to you, skip the placement test and proceed to the recommended levels below:

Pre-Qualifier 1

  • Are you looking for a pre-school maths program that will give your child a fun introduction to maths?
  • Is your pre-schooler starting to show an interest in numbers & counting?
  • Can your pre-schooler focus for 5-10 minutes at a time?

IF YES TO THESE QUESTIONS - START AT PRIMER

Pre-Qualifier 2

  • Is your student using their fingers to count?

  • Is your student yet to understand place value?

  • Can your student read, write and count numerals 0-9?

IF YES TO THESE QUESTIONS - START AT ALPHA

FOR MOST ACCURATE TEST RESULTS

Sit together

This allows you to support and encourage your student throughout the test, to give their honest answers. You can observe their progress, and will know what steps to take at the end.

Encourage but don't help

The idea of the placement test is to get the most accurate result possible, so if they get stuck, don't save them. Encourage your student to just choose "I don't know". 

Observe the tricky topics

Identifying where each student begins to struggle will help you teach them those concepts so they can progress confidently. You'll be able to fill in any gaps and spend more time in the areas they find particularly difficult.

HOW THE TEST SEQUENCE WORKS

Here's what will happen after choosing a pre-test below:

1. CHOOSE A PRE-TEST

Choose either the Foundations Placement Pre-Test or the Advanced Placement Pre-Test, based on your child's general level of understanding. The pre-test is designed to quickly establish your child's foundational understanding of maths. If you're unsure where to start, start on the foundations pre-test.

You can read more about why the placement pre-test matters here. 

NOTE: Your student can do their working on for each equation on a seperate page. Your student should not use a calculator.


2. PROGRESS THROUGH THE PRE-TEST LEVELS

Click "Start" and then let your student follow the prompts. If your student gets all of the pre-test answers correct, they will move through each level sequentially.

If the student gets a few answers incorrect on a pre-test level, they will be automatically directed to the full placement test for that level to determine if that's the appropriate place to start with Math-U-See.


3. COMPLETE THE FULL PLACEMENT TEST

The full placement test will then determine if that level is the appropriate level to start with Math-U-See

Note: Because sometimes students can make a mistake or two on the pre-test, if they subsequently get 80%+ on the full placement test for that level, you'll be automatically directed to the next level.

Choose a pre-test to learn which Math-U-See level is most appropriate for your student:

THE FOUNDATIONAL LEVELS

This is generally suited for students Grade 1 - Grade 8 and Intervention.

THE ADVANCED LEVELS

This is generally suited for students Grade 8 - University Levels.

HOW THE PLACEMENT TEST RESULTS WORK

At the completion of any placement test, you'll be directed to one of the following results:

Below 80%

This indicates that the current level is where to start. Your student needs to master the material presented in this level to be able to progress confidently.

More than 80%

This level is easy for your student and they've mastered the concepts! You'll be directed through to continue the next level test. Keep going until they start to struggle with answering the questions.
