Let's learn a bit more about what a Comprehensive Assessment at Mathnasium of Gainesville looks like.

Q: What is a comprehensive assessment?

A: To meet a new student at their level, we utilize Mathnasium's comprehensive assessment to make the plan forward.

Q: What things do you learn about a student when they take a comprehensive assessment?

A: We first identify the earliest gaps the student has and what we can do to help achieve the parent's goal. This test helps us see what skills the student has down pat and what we can help them master.

Q: What is a customized learning plan?

A: With the information from the initial assessment, we can tailor the skills we will cover to fit the individual student. No need to work on fluency if a student has their multiplication facts down pat, instead, we'll explain fractions in a way that makes sense for them.

Q: How do you gauge progress?

A: For each skill, a student goes through the learning process. We start off explaining the concept and helping them through the material. As they grow and learn, we guide them to improve their understanding and build their confidence with the skills. Once they get to a special page called a Mastery Check, a student gets to show they fully understand the material by working through it independently and explaining their thought process.
