What our beginning-of-year evaluations include
Overview: The BOY Math Assessment – Grade 5 evaluation tests students in several grade-level math areas to determine their baseline knowledge. Students will first take a pre-test to see where they are at with certain math basics. After an informative activity, they will take a post-test and compare their comprehension levels against the pre-test answers.
The goal of our beginning-of-year assessments is to provide a way for you to plan lessons according to the needs of your students. As an educator, you know it is wise to gauge where your students are at and teach them at their level. You can use these tests at the beginning of each school year to determine students’ baseline grasp of grade-level concepts in each subject.
Each assessment involves a quick pre-test, an activity, and a post-test. The pre-test analyzes students’ knowledge in some (but not all) of the skills that they should learn during this year. The activity will provide some instruction on the areas they explored during the pre-test. The post-test provides another score to compare to that of the pre-test so you can determine students’ grasp of the concepts.
BOY Math Assessment – Grade 5
Our fifth-grade math assessment covers multiple skills. It does not include all the concepts students will learn in fifth grade. However, it will provide an overall idea of students’ math knowledge. Overall, it should allow you to more effectively measure your students’ grasp on certain subject areas. This will give you a good picture of where to focus your efforts as you teach the curriculum within the roadmaps.
The skills this evaluation explores include the following areas:
Students will multiply decimals by 10 and find a decimal using a shaded grid.
Graphs and Data Points
Students will plot points on a graph using a coordinate plane.
Fraction Subtraction with Unlike Denominators
Students will rename a fraction with a common denominator by finding the least common multiple.
