Grade 3 Assessment Resources
APEC Human Resources Development Working Group on Mathematics Education
International comparison studies have found significantly different levels of achievement and practice in mathematics education in the East and West.
Asian educational systems generally produce students with a strong grasp of the content knowledge, with higher scores on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
Western systems have strengths in applying knowledge to real life situations. Many Western economies are among the most scientifically innovative in terms of such indicators as new scientific patents.
The pressing issue is how to combine the best of both systems.

Math Assessment: An Achievement Diagnostic Profile by Tanya Braybrook
Many of you went to the YTAs Conference in September 2008 and saw Tanya Braybrook speak about the Math Profile Assessment Tool that she developed. If you were not at her conference talk, it is a student, teacher and parent friendly resource that can be used as part of an assessment for learning strategy in the classroom and at parent-student-teacher interviews. It assesses the curricular objectives on a regular basis, providing achievement information and clearly pinpoints areas of strength and weakness specific to each student. At the YTA conference, Tanya showed how to actively involve students in their own assessment as they routinely graph their assessment results.
Note: I would only recommend the grades 1-6 materials at this time. The French materials have not be updated for any of the grades. As a result, they are not in line with the current curriculum.
Her materials can be ordered directly from Tanya at her website.
Additional information can also be found on this site.
