    Great resource – please correct Question 1 in Chance & Data Grade 5 as it has two answers of: 2/12. This resource was great for finding strengths and weaknesses across the strands!

      Thanks for noticing this, James. I have changed one of the responses to make it clearer.
      If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

      Hi Betsy,
      We have something similar for year 3 here:


      Alongside this, we have many assessment tools for different areas within numeracy for all year levels. I suggest going into the Learning Areas tab, selecting numeracy, and then searching for assessment and selecting the year level you are after. This will present the entire range of numeracy assessments we have available for that year.
