The GMADE™ (Group Mathematics Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation) is a diagnostic mathematics test that measures individual student skills in the main areas of math, and helps K-12 educators pinpoint areas where students need instruction. The assesmsent aligns with standards by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and can be used for growth monitoring, strengths and areas for improvement identification, and student placement.
