Overview: GMADE™ (Group Mathematics Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation) Online is a diagnostic mathematics test that measures individual student skills in the main areas of math, and helps educators in grades 2-12 pinpoint areas where students need instruction.
Accreditation: Sold only to accredited/approved schools & school districts
Age Range: Grades 2-12
Completion Time: 50-90 minutes
Forms: 7 Levels with two parallel forms for each level
Scores/Interpretation: Online Scoring and Reporting
GMADE™ Online offers paperless administration, automated scoring, and reports within minutes. For grades 2-12, it includes the following three subtests:
GMADE Online measures individual student skills in the core areas of math as identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Use GMADE Online to determine what students have mastered and where they need instruction, intervention, or enrichment.
GMADE Online provides all of the elements you need to correctly and proficiently assess all mathematical competencies. With GMADE Online 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 Online 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 Online tests progress, each measures sequentially more challenging skills appropriate to the specific levels.
The GMADE Online assessment was carefully developed to provide a broad sampling of appropriate mathematical tasks, based on a yearlong internal research study of:
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.
Individual Score Summary & Analysis
This report provides a detailed analysis of a student's individual performance by level/form. It includes a breakdown of their responses by composite and subtest, as well as a detailed diagnostic analysis of a student's mastery of specific reading- or math-related skills, including number correct, number possible, number attempted, and percent correct. Included on all reports is a quick descriptor of student performance (strength, average, weakness) based on stanines for the level administered.
Group Diagnostic Analysis by Type
This report gives teachers a quick glimpse into their student's strengths and weaknesses by subtest and item type. For example, within Concepts and Communications, item types include geometry, measurement, numeration, quantity, statistics, and time.
Group Score Summary
This group report is intended to give the classroom teacher an overall picture of how the group performed on each subtest. Each student's subtest and total scores are included along with each student's Growth Scale Value (GSV) and an average GSV for the class. The Growth Scale Values (GSVs) for the total reading and math composites can be used by schools to measure a student's growth across grades.
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.
