The Math Fluency tests are one minute paper-pencil tests that contain a random sample of grade level appropriate basic math facts. It measures overall mathematical competence through accuracy and fluency. Performance on the math fluency screeners correlates with higher performance on summative assessments of the academic content.
Grade Standards Measured 1st Grade
Fluently adds sums to 10Fluently subtracts differences from 10
Fluently adds sums to 20Fluently subtracts differences from 20
Mixed Problems: Fluently adds sums to 20 and subtracts related differencesFluently applies multiplication of 0-5, 9 and10
Fluently multipliesFluently divides
All mixed problems:

Percentiles and Benchmarks
During the 2011-12 school year, Math Fluency tests were administered to all elementary students five times during the year. Three of the administrations align with the EBIS screening assessment windows for Reading. The two additional administrations align with grade reporting and could be used to inform the fluency grade on students' report cards.
Student performance on these fluency screeners was also correlated with OAKS performance and a set of district benchmarks predictive of success on OAKS were created.
The document below details the percentiles and benchmarks from the 2011-12 study.
