These tests were created to determine what level of mathematics a student has mastered, and in which Math-U-See level to begin.
As the student does a test, watch to observe how confident the student is about his math knowledge. For example, if a student gets the correct answer to an addition problem, but counts on her fingers to find the answer, then the student needs to cover this material again.
If they aren’t functioning at an acceptable level, then place them in the respective book where they are struggling. For example, if they are having difficulty with the division problems in the Delta competency test, they should begin in the Delta level, since this is where that concept is presented. However, if they pass the Delta exam, move on to the next test which would be Epsilon.
The competency exams are made up of two parts. The first part tests computation skills, while the second part (word problems) focuses on thinking skills, and tests the student’s understanding of the concepts.
