Individual Student Response
- Students should be given the time they need to finish the assessment
- Students may use a variety of appropriate mathematical materials and resources to support their ability to demonstrate and communicate the level of their thinking and understanding around the concepts and competencies of questions and tasks.
- Students should have choices about how they represent and solve mathematics questions and tasks.
Select Response Questions
Each Numeracy Strand has a section of questions that allows the learner to determine the one correct answer. This type of question may include multiple choice, visual representation, number lines and written numerical responses.
Constructed Response Questions
Each Numeracy Strand has a section of questions that allows the learner to construct their own answer to the questions. These are often multi-step questions that may ask the student to elaborate or explain their reasoning. Constructed response questions allow for multiple correct answers and/or varying methods of arriving at the correct answer.
Each Numeracy Strand contains a performance task that allows the learner to …
- apply a wide range of problem-solving strategies,
- demonstrate deeper mathematical content knowledge, and
- communicate their thinking.
These tasks are designed to be interesting and engaging – requiring learners to think deeply, be creative, explore multiple ways to represent their thoughts, and to expand on how they completed or solved the task.
