A successful mathematics curriculum is delivered using diagnostic assessments to help define a student’s zone of proximal development, so that personalized, adaptive instruction can help the student become a successful learner. Effective math assessment solutions and reform efforts begin with a plan centered around the student. Before students begin grade-level instruction, assessments should diagnose learning gaps. As math instruction progresses, formative assessments help educators refine instruction to give students the best chance at being successful. Using education technology, or edtech, students can utilize personalized learning, automatic scaffolding of core lessons, growth measurement, and accountability whether they are in a classroom or at home with virtual learning.

On this page, Let’s Go Learn and its partners provide a library of blog articles to offer mathematics assessment and instruction strategies and best practices for everyone from professional educators and teachers, to tutors and homeschool parents. We welcome your comments.
