    There seems to be a page missing from the answer sheets – could this please be added? I like to upload students assessments on our class app for parents to see, and it’s always good to include the answers for them.

    Thanks, Erin, for letting us know. I’ll pass this on to our resource creation team. Have a great week!

    Hi Belinda,
    Not specifically for all of numeracy, however, we have many mathematics based pre and post-tests available here:
    Just filter by year 2 in the drop-down menu.
    If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Hi, this is a great assessment – however it doesn’t line up with NSW curriculum. In NSW, they do halves, quarters and eighths by the end of Year 2 and then learn about thirds and fifths in Year Three. I understand that you are matching resources to the Australia curriculum, but is it possible to get a fractions resource that is on 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s only?

    Hi Netta, thanks for your comment. Yes, all of our resources are linked to the Australian Curriculum. Please feel free to make a change request in the options at the bottom of this page and our team can look into this further for you.

    I agree, this is a great assessment, but doesn’t align with Australian Curriculum either. Australian Curriculum for Year 1 is halves, and Year 2 is as below.

    Fractions and decimals
    Recognise and interpret common uses of halves, quarters and eighths of shapes and collections

    This would be a great assessment for Year 3 though! Thanks TeachStarter for making our jobs easier!

    Resource Updates

    • Added the missing answer sheet. Re-ordered the questions to focus on the Year 2 content on pages 1 and 2. Page 3 now can be used as an extension page as it uses thirds and fifths, which are worked on in Year 3. The Year 1 content has been split into a stand-alone resource available here: https://www.teachstarter.com/au/teaching-resource/fractions-assessment-year-1/
