Age Range: K-12, Adult

Administration: Full Battery, Paper/Pencil

Completion Time: 50-90 minutes

Forms: 10 Levels with two parallel forms for each level

Norms: Norm-Referenced Fall and Spring, Age-based and grade-based

Scores/Interpretation: Stanines, Percentiles, Grade Equivalents, Age Equivalents, Standard Scores, Norm Curve Equivalents, and Growth Scale Values

 
 

Product Details

Guide Instruction Using Focused Testing

GMADE™ provides the information you need to pinpoint areas where students require additional help in mathematics.

GMADE measures individual student skills in the core areas of math as identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Use GMADE to determine what students have mastered and where they need instruction, intervention, or enrichment.

Features & Benefits

GMADE’s accurate, in-depth, and easy-to-use evaluation will:

  • Save time through whole group administration
  • Lead directly to instruction and intervention with on-site scoring that provides assessment results immediately
  • Track student growth from Kindergarten to grade 12 with two parallel forms and Growth Scale Values (GSVs)
  • Communicate assessment data in a variety of meaningful ways with four group reports and four individual student reports
  • Move through the assessment cycle easily and quickly to show progress using related products that provide focused instruction
  • Aid in guiding instruction to ensure student success while helping deliver Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) gains
  • Use GRADE as part of an RTI program to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses for struggling students so that appropriate targeted instructional interventions can be created. GRADE and
  • GMADE have been reviewed by the National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI). The results of the evaluation can be found at http://www.RTI4Success.org/ScreeningTools

Content Area

GMADE is based on highly reliable scientific research, providing all of the elements you need to correctly and proficiently assess all mathematical competencies. With GMADE’s rich assessment data, you can determine placement of students, analyze strengths and weaknesses, plan instruction, monitor growth from grade to grade, help with post-secondary educational planning, and more.

GMADE uses the standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and is correlated to the NCTM Focal Points, diagnostically assessing core skills in the following three areas: Concepts & Communication, Operations & Computation, Process & Application. 

Each subtest contains questions or items designed to measure specific skills that are developmentally appropriate for that level. As GMADE tests progress, each measures sequentially more challenging skills appropriate to the specific levels.

The GMADE assessment was carefully developed to provide a broad sampling of appropriate mathematical tasks, based on a yearlong internal research study of:

  • state standards
  • curriculum benchmarks
  • scope and sequence plans of common math textbook series
  • review of research on best-practice for teaching and learning math concepts and skills

Available on CD-ROM, the GMADE Math Resource Library provides numerous reproducible activities and worksheets to reinforce critical math skills and help establish a direct link from test results to intervention. The nine CDs, one for each GMADE level, offer remediation, on-level practice, and enrichment exercises. Each level offers sample worksheets that provide students, small groups, or an entire class opportunities to practice and strengthen their skills.

In addition, professional development courses are available to help make the GMADE assessment more meaningful to every teacher, improving the quality of your instruction

  • Utilizing GRADE/GMADE Data to Drive Instruction

    Presenter: Misty Sprague

    During this session the presenter will demonstrate how the Group Reading and Diagnostic Evaluation(GRADE) and Group Math and diagnostic evaluation (GMADE) help to make reading and math more meaningful to each and every student, which will improve the overall quality of instruction. We will also look at understanding how to align the GRADE/GMADE assessment results with correlated interventions to help students improve weaknesses or challenge strengths. This session serves as a good introduction to school personnel who would like to learn more about GRADE/GMADE and how it can be used in their schools.

Operating System

ProcessorRAMAvailable Hard-Drive SpaceMonitor Settings
Windows XP, Vista, or later Pentium II, 300 MHz or Higher 128 MB available without scannning; 512 MB available with scanning* 100 MB with Java virual machine; 60 MB without virtual machine 24-bit
Macintosh OS v10.3x (Panther) or later PowerMac G3

*Scanning software compatible with PC only.
Note: Faster configurations provide faster installation and enhance software performance.

Server Compatibility

The Client/Server version of the Scoring and Reporting Software uses Microsoft SQL Server 2000 as its backend database. Your organization must have a registered copy of SQL Server 2000 or 2005 in order for the software to function across a network. Although other database options are listed during database selection, only SQL Server 2000 and 2005 have been tested and approved for use with the GRADE and G-MADE Client/Server Scoring and Reporting software.

Data Compatibility

A numeric ID system for students, teachers, classes, and schools must be in place to use the software.

Compatible Scanners

A number of Optical Mark Read (OMR) scanners are compatible with the GRADE/GMADE Scoring and Reporting Software.

Current Scanner Models (available for sale as of May, 2008)

  • iNSIGHT TM 2 - Dual-side read OMR or Image models (manual feed)
  • iNSIGHT TM 4 - Dual-side read OMR or Image models
    (100-sheet automatic feed, scans 2,200 sheets per hour)
  • OpScan® 6 - Dual-side pencil-read models
    (300 sheet automatic feed — two models: 3,600 and 5,000 sheets per hour)
  • OpScan® 8 - Dual-side pencil-read models
    (300 sheet automatic feed — two models: 3,600 and 5,000 sheets per hour)
  • OpScan® 10 - Pencil-read models
    (500 sheet automatic feed — two models: 4,000 and 6,000 sheets per hour)
  • ScanMark ES2260TM - Pencil-read models
    (150-sheet automatic feed, scans 2,200 sheets per hour)
  • ScanMark ES2800TM - Dual-side pencil-read models
    (150-sheet automatic feed, scans 2,800 sheets per hour)

Please note that these scanning speeds do not take into account time to load and unload the scanner, clearing of misfeeds, or operator interruptions. A faster scanner with a larger capacity automatic feed may be a better fit if a large number of tests or if a number of multiple-page test booklets for the early primary grades will be scanned.

Older Scanner Models (compatible, but no longer sold)

  • OpScan 2 dual-side pencil-read models
  • OpScan 3 dual-side pencil-read models
  • OpScan 4 and OpScan 4U dual-side pencil-read models
  • OpScan 5 dual-side pencil-read models
  • OpScan 7 dual-side pencil-read models
  • OpScan 21 pencil-read models
  • ScanMark 2250 dual-side pencil-read models
  • ScanMark 2500 dual-side pencil-read models
  • Scantron 8200, 8400 and 8600 dual-side pencil-read models

Note that the iNSIGHT and OpScan models have been sold under the NCS, Pearson, and Scantron brand names.
