How to view maths diagnostic results

These instructions explain how to view the maths diagnostic results for individual pupils within a class. From the individual pupil’s diagnostic result page you will be able to view their score and how they performed in the maths diagnostic.

Click ‘Reports’ at the top of the teacher dashboard.

Ensure you have selected your desired class and subject. You can change these using the drop down menus at the top left

How to interpret the maths diagnostic results

The maths diagnostic result will give you a snapshot of your pupils’ progress through the curriculum. For example, a result of Mid Year 4 means that your pupil has understood some of the skills in the Year 4 curriculum but is still working on others.

For schools in using the Scottish curriculum, the maths diagnostic will appear for example as Mid First level. This means that the pupil has an understanding of the skills until mid first level.

You will also be able to see a stranded report which highlights areas of strength and weakness within the curriculum for each pupil.

How the maths diagnostic results are used in Sumdog

The purpose of Sumdog’s maths diagnostic tool is to place pupils at the right level based on their ability meaning we can personalise questions for each pupil. Once pupils have completed the diagnostic, they will be given a corresponding ability level and focus skill.

When they start playing the games the questions asked will be according to their focus skill. Each pupil will be able to progress through the skill plan according to their level.

What to do if you think the diagnostic test result is wrong for a pupil

If your pupil had rushed through questions or had help in the maths diagnostic they might be placed in an incorrect level.

If you find that they were placed in either a too low and too high level you can reset the diagnostic test for them, here is how.
