'Build-a-Mathematician' (BAM) Progress Tracker Sheets

Part of our new 'Assessing without (NC) levels' suite of assessment resources based on the Kangaroo Maths Mastery Indicators, BAM Progress Tracker Sheets are intended to be used alongside our schemes of work addressing the aims and content of the 2014 curriculum. They enable pupils to be part of the effective tracking of key conceptual indicators that underpin progression in mathematics and support the building a picture of a mathematician.

'Build-a-Mathematician' (BAM) Tasks

Brand new assessment tasks to support the process of building a picture of a mathematician. The tasks are ideal to consolidate intended learning, support deliberate practice sessions and/or use as homework tasks. The carefully crafted questions have been designed to assess fluency, reasoning, problem solving and a student's ability to apply their understanding. One question will always focus on a misconception. The first few examples are from Stages 7 and 8, and the full suite of tasks will be built over time.

A resource package based on the assessment criteria from Levels 3 to 8, as coded and paraphrased below. Self-assessment opportunities are included, and they also form part of the (old)interactive schemes of work. Take a look at these user notes for detailed information about their design. Thanks to the Gloucestershire Maths Advisory Team and the Herefordshire School Improvement Service for their contributions.

Single Level Tests

A resource package providing sets of assessments based on National Curriculum levels to help produce a mathematical profile for students. Ideal support for identifying strengths and areas for development in order to close gaps in achievement, and also for ensuring that tracking data is robust and accurate. Thanks to the AET Mathematics Team for developing and contributing all of these resources.

Level Ladders

Written from a teacher's perspective to give a sense of progression through each of the topic areas below.


Okay, so it's a silly made up word, but we hope that these might prove useful. The Levelopaedia provides exemplifications and probing questions for each of the 'assessment criteria' for every National Curriculum level. This resource has been produced by the Gloucestershire Maths Advisory Team, and there is also an e-profile to help in the process of building a picture of what pupils can do in mathematics.
