How to use Math assessments

Assessments are similar to a test or quiz. They can be used to test your childrens’ understanding of a topic or to identify any gaps in their learning. When a child 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 child or family to see if they have shown an improvement.
With the assessment, you will be able to choose the questions and set a time limit for children to complete the assessment.

Children 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).
