This elementary school diagnostic math assessment for back to school is designed to help you benchmark your students' subtraction skills at the beginning of the year and plan for intervention and remediation of learning gaps resulting from remote, hybrid, and quarantine instruction, or summer learning loss.

This assessment for elementary grades (1-4) includes:

  • 4 levels of different types of subtraction problem sets, including word problems, "show your work" open response, and diagnosis of common subtraction mistakes
  • An answer key and detailed recommendation rubric
  • A leveled scoring guide, along with suggestions for skills to focus on and hands-on differentiation activities and extensions to help with intervention and remediation planning.

This resource can also be used throughout the school year to check students' progress with subtraction fluency. Pair this resource with math flashcards from Fact Monster to help students build or level up their skills.
