Junior Assessment of Mathematics
JAM (Pilot Draft)
The JAM assesses the achievement of a student in relation to levels one and two of The New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) and the mathematics standards for years 1–3. The assessment consists of 9 modules. Each module can be used as a separate assessment, or the modules can be combined to provide a broader assessment. Teachers will need to select the modules that are relevant to the needs of their students. The number modules of JAM replace the diagnostic interview (NumPA). The Algebra, Geometry and Measurement modules do not assess all concepts in these strands.
