Mathematics diagnostic assessment.
Our Mathematics Assessments identify mastery of and gaps in blocks of knowledge and skills.

By identifying exact gaps, appropriate remedial work can be done to eradicate these gaps; which leads to improved marks and eliminates frustration and loss of academic confidence in the learner.

What to expect
during each assessment

Each assessment has 3 or more sub-sections to allow learners to take a break between sections if required. The assessments mostly have free-fill answers. Each question has been carefully selected to test a specific CAPS outcome.

Grade 3 to 6 Assessments only assesses the CAPS content of the year prior to and the year indicated on the assessment, E.g. The Grade 5 assessment covers the CAPS content of grades 4 and 5. The keeps the assessment within the concentration span of the younger learners. From Grade 7 onwards, the assessment covers the CAPS content of the year indicated on the assessment plus the three years prior to it. E.g. the Grade 9 assessment covers the CAPS content from grade 6 to grade 9 all inclusive. This makes it long and the learner should be allowed to take breaks between sub-sections.

Most tests and examinations measure the performance of each learner with respect to work done at their current Grade. With our diagnostic assessments, we measure the learners’ comprehension of every topic from the initial introduction of every Mathematical concept, up to and including the level of the learner at the time of the assessment. This is what makes our assessment different from other tests.


Written assessment

When we receive notification of payment, you receive a link to a printable assessment. The learner can then complete a written assessment and send us pictures or scans of the completed assessment. We mark the assessments by hand and let you have a detailed report about the skills mastered and not mastered in each of prescribed CAPS topics for the applicable grades.


Online assessment

Our online assessments are hosted on an external, secure, educational platform. To access our online assessments, click on this button below. You will be re-directed to the MobieG platform, where an online assessment can be done.

What do the assessments
include?

The assessments are based on the CAPS curriculum from Grade 1 to Grade 9 (our Gr 10, 11 & 12 assessments will soon be online) and stand on the following pillars:

NUMBERS

FRACTIONS – including Rates, Ratios, Percentages & Financial Calculations

ALGEBRA – including Patterns, Functions, Graphs & Differential Calculus

GEOMETRY – including Space, Shape & Trigonometry

EUCLIDIAN GEOMETRY – including Measurement & Pythagoras

STATISTICS – including Data Handling, Analytical Skills & Probability

Select the correct Grade
for the assessment

If a learner does an assessment at the beginning of an academic year, we recommend that the learner does the assessment for the previous year, i.e.at the beginning of grade 8 it makes sense to do the Grade 7 Assessment. If the learner does an assessment that includes topics not yet covered at school and the learner either leaves the topic out or answers it incorrectly, it will also show on the report as “Skills not yet mastered”.

What to do it the learner has “not yet mastered” most topics in an assessment?

To determine exactly how far back the “gaps in the Mathematics wall” are, we suggest that the learner do the assessment that covers the content of the previous year. This can be done at a 50% discount of the normal assessment price.

Benefits
for the learner

Learners will find out exactly which key concepts of each topic are missing.

Learners realise that it is not their lack of ability, but their lack of skills that influences their performance in Mathematics and that skills can be acquired through our support programmes.

The systematic approach of our support programmes makes it less intimidating for the learner to acquire the necessary Mathematical knowledge and skills.

The supplemental programme will show results. It tracks a learner’s own progress through the grades and builds confidence through success.

Learners will be able to reach their full potential in Mathematics and it will open opportunities to the ever-increasing number of careers requiring Mathematics.

Benefits
for a tutor centre or a school

It provides the centre or school with a powerful edge in sourcing learners.

The assessment identifies the specific gaps in the learners’ skillsets linked to the level/grade where it occurred. One of the primary challenges for Mathematics teachers is knowing at what point of the content the learner lost comprehension of the topic. This is crucial to assist the teacher to address the problem.

By combining the Diagnostic Assessment with a remedial programme and doing a re-test to assess the ability of the learner to benefit from targeted remedial work, the school is able to identify and substantiate whether learners have the potential to be successful in Mathematics; and whether the learner should choose Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy as a subject in Grade 10.
