Essary, Catherine; Kari, Amy; Rummelsburg, Judy; Gillan, Connie; Kysh, Judy
This research attempts to look for ways to assess elementary school students in mathematics, to discover what they can do, and what they understand. It aims to establish benchmarks for student progress in grades 1 through 5 and to begin a process for identifying students who are at risk for failure in mathematics. This paper presents each teachers' reports explaining their experiences and findings. Results indicate the importance of both efficiency with skills and good use of problem solving strategies in developing good elementary mathematicians. (ASK)
