Basic Arithmetic Assessment Here is a one page arithmetic assessment. Give your Learner the page and scrap paper to use. No calculators. Allow them 5 minutes, exactly! Observe how they work. How confident they work? Note the correct answers completed in the 5 minutes. Look for evidence of transposing or reversing numbers. Check how they do the work. Observe how confident the student approached the assessment. Where was there hesitation? What areas did they skip? How proficient are they in Math? How much math do they use in their lives? This may be areas that you can incorporate basic calculations into their reading assignment.
