When is it best to assess Topics?

iMaths 1/5/19


Note: iMaths is in its final year and will be discontinued at the end of 2024. If you’re looking for a primary maths resource written for the Australian Curriculum Version 9.0, explore Maths Trek.

You can assess the Topics at any time. However, you will get a more valid assessment of students’ knowledge and understanding if you assess Topics at the conclusion of an associated Investigation.

Students will develop a deeper understanding and improve their knowledge of Topics while doing the Investigation.

Any remediation required can also occur during the Investigation using resources such as the Support Differentiation Tasks from iMaths Online, or stepping in and reteaching the Topic if the whole class is struggling with a concept.

Then, at the conclusion of the Investigation, use the Tracker Book to review students’ basic understanding of the concept with the Know questions, and assess higher-order thinking skills with the Apply questions.
