DMA

Direct Mathematics Assessment

DMA testing will be held this year on Wednesday, December 2, 2009

The Direct Mathematics Assessment (DMA) is formally given in grades 4, 6, and 8. However, the DMA Toolkit includes general resources for teachers and students in all grades K-12. These resources include such items as suggested problem solving strategies and recently identified Power Standards. In addition, specific DMA-related resources are available for grades 4, 6, 8, and 10, which may be adapted for other grade levels as necessary and as they reflect our Achievement Standards.Through adjustment of the particular concepts found with the 4th, 6th, 8th and 10th grade level resources, it is hoped that students at any and all grade levels will be able to benefit. This DMA Toolkit offers many focused and helpful aids in preparing students for the Direct Mathematics Assessments including: the new 4-point Scoring Standard, practice prompts, advice for students and teachers, and Main Rangefinders. Rangefinders are example student assessments used to show a mid-range sample (not high or low) of each level of performance on the scoring scale (1-4). If you have decided to download a copy of a Toolkit, please note that we have separated the Toolkit by the sections of its Table of Contents. This is to assist you with the large size of the files.
