### ASSESSING 4TH GRADE MATH SKILLS

Hello Teachers,

School has started, and we are getting to know our students. Are you wondering about the skills your 4th-grade students have? Here’s a rubric with 10 areas that teachers can use to quickly assess 4th Grade Math Skills Assessment.

Note: For each area, you can use a simple scale (e.g., 1-5) to rate students’ proficiency, with 1 indicating a significant deficit, and 5 indicating mastery.

## Number Sense:

• Recognizes and writes numbers up to 1,000.
• Demonstrates an understanding of place value (ones, tens, hundreds).
• Can identify odd and even numbers.

• Performs mental addition and subtraction within 100 accurately.
• Applies various strategies (e.g., regrouping) for multi-digit addition and subtraction.

## Fractions:

• Identifies and compares fractions with common denominators.
• Adds and subtracts fractions with like denominators.

## Geometry:

• Identifies and names different types of angles (e.g., right, acute, obtuse).
• Understands basic geometric shapes (e.g., triangles, rectangles, circles).

## Measurement

• Measures length, weight, and volume using appropriate units (e.g., inches, pounds, liters).
• Converts between different units of measurement (e.g., inches to feet).

## Data and Graphs:

• Reads and interprets bar graphs, line plots, and pictographs.
• Can create simple graphs to represent data.

## Time and Money:

• Tells time accurately on analog and digital clocks.
• Counts and calculates money, including making change.

## Word Problems:

• Solves multi-step word problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
• Uses appropriate strategies to approach problem-solving.

## Patterns and Algebra:

• Recognizes and extends patterns and sequences.
• Solves basic algebraic equations (e.g., 2x + 3 = 11).

There you go teachers, this rubric can serve as a quick reference guide to help you assess 4th-grade students’ math skills across a range of essential topics. It can be adapted and customized to suit specific curriculum standards and classroom needs.
