# End of Year Math Assessment – Grade 4

\$1.95

The end-of-year assessments are an optional tool parents and educators can use to determine students’ grasp of concepts they learned throughout the year. Hopefully, students will have gained the skills necessary to pass the assessment easily. Deliver the test near the end of the school year to check whether or not students understand the grade-level standards. This assessment is designed for fourth-grade math students.

Similar to the BOYs, each assessment involves a pre-test, an activity, and a post-test. You will first distribute the pre-test, which assesses many of the skills students learned that year. After the pre-test, do the activity, which educates students on those same concepts and helps them remember things they may not have fully understood during the pre-test. Finally, distribute the post-test and compare students answers to those of the pre-test to determine whether they have improved.

## What our End of Year Math Assessment – Grade 4 includes

Objective and Overview: The End of Year Math Assessment – Grade 4 evaluation tests students in grade-level math areas to determine their baseline knowledge. 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. At the end of the assessment, students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the basic mathematic calculations for children leaving fourth grade.

### Teacher Notes

The teacher notes page includes lines that you can use to add your own notes as you’re preparing for this assessment. This page also lists information in the blue box that you might find useful. You will find the objectives, state standards, and number of class sessions the assessment should take to complete in this area. In addition, it describes the supplies you will need as well as what and how you need to prepare beforehand.

### PRE-ASSESSMENT

For the pre-assessment, students will solve ten problems to test their understanding of the basic mathematical skills for children leaving fourth grade. You can use this as a benchmark to understand which skills students have and which they struggle with.

### PARACHUTE ACTIVITY

The activity asks students to construct a parachute that will stay in the air the longest using materials like tissue paper, plastic bags, string, glue, and tape. They will answer questions about their parachute, like which materials worked well and which didn’t. They will also record how long their parachute stayed in the air and write it in expanded notation, among other questions. Finally, they will draw a picture of their parachute.

### POST-ASSESSMENT

For the post-assessment, students will solve ten problems to test their understanding of the basic mathematical skills for children leaving fourth grade. This assessment tests the same skills as the pre-assessment.
