Second Grade Math Tests
The second-grade math curriculum begins by spiraling the previous grade level. We start by just building up from the skills we already have. We extend our ability to count up to one thousand. Students also start learning about how to define and categorize values by comparing larger and smaller values. They also learn to classify even and odd numbers. Up until this point every operation or problem that students have seen are single step problems. This level introduces two-step problems and how to organize your thought process for them. Students also begin to look at the more concrete sides of math by learning how to read analog and digital clocks, estimate lengths, and solve problems involving money. The concept of picture graphs as make their way in to us at the end of the school year. It seems that grade 2 is the most neglected grade in terms of quality math test samples. I searched all over the place to get some examples to work off of for ideas. There was zilch available! I think I put together some quality work here for teachers and students, not to pat myself on the back or anything.
- Grade 2 Math Common Core Sampler Test - A full sample of the common questions that you will see for students at this level.
Choice Questions Test Form A - The content for this level lends
itself to this format best.
Choice Questions Test Form A Version 2 - We add a whole bunch
of new problems for you.
Choice Questions Test Form A Version 3 - Ditto here, but it
is a bit challenging in the middle of the test.
Response Questions Test Form B - The calculations are mostly
short. I have some teachers writing in and asking me if students
should use calculators; I shy away from that.
Response Questions Test Form C - It was a stretch to put together
this section. The word problems, graphs, and line plots fit nicely
and Algebraic Thinking Quiz - This is the first level that you
will see mental math at.
- Number & Operations
in Base Quiz - This section of the curriculum is the largest
selection of content.
and Data Quiz - Curriculum writers were obsessed with length
as a measurement. Makes sense, because kids can touch and feel it.
- Geometry Quiz
- Geometry is first introduced here and is very light in material,
as per the Core.
