Number Knowledge Test

What is the Number Knowledge Test (NKT)?

The NKT is a free, individually administered number sense screener.  It takes approximately 10 minutes per student to administer.  This test can be used to identify if a student is on par with their same age peers in number sense. For more on the NKT, click here:  https://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED521575.pdf

 

Goals of the Number Knowledge Test

1. To determine if a student is functioning at, above, or below age/grade level in number knowledge

2. To determine which number concepts the student has mastered, which she is struggling with, and which she still needs to learn

3. To assess a student’s progress over the instructional period or academic year
