What is Acadience Math?

Acadience Math is comprised of measures of early numeracy, computation, and problem solving that function as indicators of the essential skills that every child must master in order to become proficient in mathematics. The measures can be used to quickly and efficiently monitor the development of mathematics skills. Acadience Math is designed for use in identifying children experiencing difficulty in the acquisition of basic mathematics skills, in order to provide support early and prevent the occurrence of later mathematics difficulties.

Why Use Acadience Math?

Acadience Math provides reliable and valid universal screening to identify students who may be at risk for mathematics difficulties. These measures also help identify the skills to target for instructional support. Acadience Math also provides progress monitoring measures for at-risk students while they receive additional, targeted instruction to close achievement gaps. Finally, these measures assist educators in examining the effectiveness of school-wide mathematics supports.

The purposes of Acadience Math are:

  • to identify students who may be at risk for mathematics difficulties (universal screening);
  • to help teachers identify areas to target instructional support;
  • to monitor at-risk students while they receive additional, targeted instruction; and
  • to examine the effectiveness of your school’s system of instructional supports.

The advantages of Acadience Math are that it:

  • is cost effective;
  • is standardized;
  • is quick and efficient to administer and score;
  • is thoroughly researched, reliable, and valid, with problem types carefully constrained within and across probes;
  • provides research-based benchmark goals for interpreting results;
  • is specifically designed to be used in a problem-solving, outcomes-driven model of decision making and response to intervention; and
  • is aligned to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics.

Key Features of Acadience Math include:

  • a user-friendly format with clear, concise directions and scoring rules;
  • carefully developed and empirically refined measures that were field-tested with students in school settings;
  • a composite score for each grade and time of year;
  • arrangement of items to increase reliability of scores; and
  • response pattern analysis tools for the measures of Computation and Concepts and Applications to facilitate targeted instruction.

Data Management and Reporting

Data management and reporting for Acadience Math is available from Acadience Data Management at the low cost of $1 per student, per school year. And if you already use Acadience Data Management for your Acadience Reading K-6 data, the cost of Acadience Math is included, so you will only pay $1 per student.
