Grades
TEAMS provides
testing materials for every mathematics module. At the

It is important that students have the necessary materials
to complete assessments successfully. First grade students
may need two sessions to complete the test.

Materials: 
Manipulatives are not required,
but make sure students have manipulatives available to help
them solve the problems. Color tiles, disks, or cubes can
help stuents visualize concepts.
For this test, you will read the directions to the students.
Be sure to prepare students for taking pretests. Encourage
them to do their best, but let them know the test is
to let you know what to teach.

same format. Students are asked to complete a pattern, build
a pattern, write about a problem or fill in what's missing. 
Examples:

your finger on number 1. Look at the equation.
What number goes in the box? Fill in the bubble
next to your answer. 
For
Problem #2 Teacher reads:

You will be asked to write an equation to solve
the problem. There are 9 kittens playing. Some
of the kittens climb into a box to take a nap.
There are 5 kittens left playing. How many kittens
are in the box? Write an equation to show how
to solve it.
