New to Math Shelf Assessments? 

Math Shelf Assessment is a standards-based test for Kindergarten and preschool students.  It’s administered within the Math Shelf App 3 times a year (Fall, Winter & Spring).

The purpose of Math Shelf Assessment is to inform teachers and school leaders if each student is on track to meet math standards in the Fall, Winter & Spring.  More importantly, teachers and leaders should use assessment data to inform teaching and learning.

How the assessment works:

  • Math Shelf Assessment is embedded in the app and requires no teacher planning, prep, or proctoring.
  • Each day the student takes a different part of the assessment.
  • Each part takes only 2 minutes.
  • When the student completes all 5 assessment parts (Classification & Patterns, Number Sense, Geometry, Measurement, and Place Value), the teacher can see her class results on her Dashboard.
