The Math Inventory is a research-based, adaptive math assessment that measures math abilities and longitudinal progress from Kindergarten through Algebra II. It can be administered in a group setting in around 40 minutes 3–5 times per year. Plus, The Math Inventory is now available for Apple iOS and Google Play!
With more rigor and an updated item bank that is aligned to current math expectations The Math Inventory ensures that students are ready to perform math tasks at college levels. It provides exponentially more information at the very high and low end of the achievement spectrum in less time. That’s more than a fixed form math assessment could ever offer and it’s all right here, in one, fast, accurate solution:
The Math Inventory shifts the paradigm from focusing on the skills students do not know to identifying what they already possess and are now ready to learn. This key shift makes all the difference in accelerating growth toward algebra.
Mathematics growth is measured on the Quantile Framework for Mathematics—a scientific taxonomy of over 500 math concepts and skills—placing student readiness and difficulty of math tasks on the same scale.
With The Math Inventory's Quantile measures, educators are able to:
Algebra is the gateway to college! The Math Inventory provides an accurate forecast of the trajectory to algebra with progression of the most critical concepts and skills students must master at each grade level. Universal screening and growth monitoring can be administered independently up to three times per year.
By mapping progress along the Quantile Framework, educators are able to forecast each student’s individual growth and address his or her needs accordingly.
Students' readiness for Algebra starts at 1030Q.
The Early Numeracy screener is designed to quickly determine basic mathematics skills in an environment that is developmentally appropriate for young students, prior to administering the full adaptive ability test.
The Early Numeracy screener assesses basic number skills of young math students including counting, quantity comparison, and number recognition.
Educators learn which students are struggling with these basic concepts and may need additional support before taking the full adaptive assessment.
Target the critical fluencies essential to success by administering screeners to assess addition and multiplication facts as well as understanding of equivalence and number properties, depending upon grade level.
The Math Inventory provides read alouds for all text-based items and responses to ensure the test is measuring students’ math—not reading—proficiency, to provide a more accurate measure of their ability.
In partnership with Dr. Carol Dweck’s Mindset Works, The Math Inventory includes growth mindset feedback to motivate students to persevere, promoting effort and focus.
