How to use Maths assessments

Assessments are similar to a test or quiz. They can be used to test your pupils’ understanding of a topic or to identify any gaps in their learning.

When a pupil takes an assessment, they’ll be answering outside of Sumdog’s games, much like a paper test. The results are sent to you in real time and you can share or print these if you wish.

Assessments can be repeated for a class or pupil to see if they have shown an improvement. You can also create an assessment for your current class and repeat it for your class next year. With the assessment, you will be able to choose the questions and set a time limit for pupils to complete the assessment.

Pupils are able to start the assessment and then stop and come back to it (as long as it’s within the time limit you have set).
