TEAMS Mathematics Pre- and Post-Tests

Grades 1-2, Number Concepts for Primary Grades

TEAMS provides testing materials for every mathematics module. At the 1-2 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 pre-tests. 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..

Problem #1

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.
