Grades
12, Number Concepts for Primary Grades
TEAMS provides testing materials for every mathematics
module. At the 12 level the teacher reads the test item
to students. It is important that students have the necessary
materials to complete assessments successfully. First grade
students may need two sessions to complete the test.

Administering
Tests: 
For this level, teachers need
to read the problem to students, allow students an adequate
amount of time to record their solutions, and make sure that
students are clearly understanding directions.

Manipulatives are not required, but
make sure students have manipulatives available to
help them solve the problems. Color tiles, disks,
or cubes can help students visualize concepts.


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.

Test
Format & Scoring: 
Not all test items follow the
same format. 
Example:
Teacher reads:
Put your finger on number 1.
Look at the numbers in the boxes.
There are two numbers missing. What numbers go in the empty boxes?
Put a number in each box..



Teacher reads:
Move down to problem 2.
Look at the number 22.
How many different ways can you show 22 using numbers?
On the lines under the 22, write two different expressions that show
22.
You can use the manipulatives to help you decide on your answer.



Teacher reads:
Find the number 12.
Here are pictures of some things to buy.
You have 50¢ to spend.
Circle three things to buy that costs 50¢ or less.
On the line under the picture, write an equation to show how much it costs
to buy the three things you circled.
