Oxford Maths Assess:

  • is easy for teacher, students and parents to follow
  • provides teachers with assessment content that shows basic understanding and fluency of a topic, and also provides students with content that enables them to:
    • think about their understanding of a topic
    • extend themselves by applying concepts further or by comparing different ways of working
    • show and explain the way they have solved a problem or why a method does or doesn't work
  • provides evidence of a student's level of achievement in every content strand of mathematics (assessment of learning), but also provides teachers with verification of a student's proficiency level in the key areas of understanding, fluency, problem solving and reasoning (assessment for learning)
  • includes a grading guide and suggestions for students who are achieving beyond or below the expected level of achievement 

Part 1: Assessment of Learning

The assessment of learning is designed to help the teach er(and the student) measure progress towards achievement standards. The aim of this assessment is to find out what a student has learned and to help answer questions such as 

  • Where was the student?
  • Where is the student now?
  • Where does the student need to go next?

Part 2: Assessment for Learning

Assessment for learning differs from assessment of learning because its main focus is inquiry into the learning process. Teachers are able to look at the way students learn, rather than at their level of achievement. This analysis can then inform future teaching and learning requirements.

This assessment focuses on students'level of development in the proficiency strands of the mathematics curriculum (understanding, fluency, problem and reasoning) and their ability to reflect on, reason, explain, explore and adapt key mathematical concepts.
