Scores are only part of the equation. Combine universal screening and progress monitoring with guided diagnostic interviews to get a richer view of at-risk students, and to gauge the effectiveness of math instruction and intervention.

How it works

Ask questions to uncover students’ mathematical reasoning, and measure fundamental skills required by the Common Core State Standards in mathematics for grades K–3.

  • Conduct one-to-one or written benchmark assessments.
  • Interview students and record answers and problem-solving strategies.
  • Receive instant diagnostic profiles and suggested instructional activities.
  • Identify at-risk students, and diagnose where they are struggling.
  • Track progress and compare student performance with research-based benchmark goals.
  • See mCLASS:Math in action.

    Follow a first-grade teacher using mCLASS:Math assessment to determine next steps of instruction for a specific student.

  • Assess skills.

    The teacher is using the mCLASS application for a timed assessment of early numeracy and number sense skills.

  • View scores.

    Instant assessment results for the student, David, allow the teacher to view his performance against research-based benchmarks.

  • Record observations.

    The teacher also conducts an observational assessment with David using intuitive icons to record observations of the student’s problem-solving methods.

  • Understand reasoning.

    A guided diagnostic interview helps the teacher learn more about David’s approach, including questions that ask him to think about alternate strategies.

  • Review results.

    The results reveal David’s understanding of mathematical concepts based on his problem-solving methods.

  • Target activities.

    With the performance analysis the teacher receives recommended activities targeted to David’s need.

  • Use reports.

    Class reports summarize overall performance and help the teacher track assessment and monitor intervention progress.

Support Services

We’ve partnered with the best in the field.

mCLASS:Math was developed in collaboration with our partner Herbert Ginsburg, Ph.D., a professor at Columbia University’s Teachers College and a pioneer in the use of diagnostic interviews.

The diagnostic interview portion of mCLASS:Math is the only assessment tool I have seen that dares to sketch a picture of a child’s ability to think mathematically.
