• Math Fluency

     

    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 10

    Fluently subtracts differences from 10

    2nd Grade

    Fluently adds sums to 20

    Fluently subtracts differences from 20
    3rd Grade

    Mixed Problems: Fluently adds sums to 20 and subtracts related differences

    Fluently applies multiplication of 0-5, 9 and10
    4th Grade

    Fluently multiplies

    Fluently divides
    5th Grade

    All mixed problems:

    Fluently adds sums to 20 and subtracts related

    Multiplies facts to 10x10 and Divides related

    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.
