Numeracy Goal
Use of the SNAP Math tool (attached below) as both a formative and summative assessment tool for grades 13.
Assessment of grade 3 students will include data from the District Numeracy Assessment performed in Fall and Spring which focuses specifically on number sense and problemsolving.
This year, the district is using two new assessments to focus on number sense and problem solving for grade three students.
The SNAP Numeracy assessment is a tool to measure number sense. ‘Number sense’ refers to the ability to understand the value of a number and represent the number in different ways (using reallife examples, representing using math tiles, on a number line, etc). We know that strong number sense supports students’ achievement in all areas of math. In addition to other strategies to support numeracy, we continue to use SNAP Math tool as both a practice tool and an assessment tool.
The problem solving assessment gives students a choice of two problems; students choose one problem to analyze, solve and explain their reasoning. Problem Solving assessment data was collected once this year in January 2022.
The 202122 data for grade three shows that most students were either developing or showing proficiency in number sense and problemsolving skills. A focus area for instruction moving forwards is to support students to reflect on their own mathematical thinking and connecting concepts to reallife (connecting and reflecting). The June number sense (SNAP) data showed growth in connecting and reflecting.
