The chart below explains what this test assesses at various development levels.
Test Description

Level 5/6

Consists of questions about beginning Mathematics concepts, problem solving, and
mathematics operations
The content standards involve numeration, geometry, measurement, and applications
of addition and subtraction in word problems. Items are read aloud, and responses
are pictures and numbers

Level 7

Administered in two separate sessions
All questions are read aloud.
In Part 1, the response options for each question are either pictorial or numerical.
Students are required to demonstrate their understanding of, and ability to apply,
a variety of concepts in the areas of number sense and operations, geometry, measurement,
and number sentences.
In Part 2, some questions involve the interpretation of data presented in graphs
or tables: students locate data, compare amounts, or develop generalizations.
For some other questions, brief word problems are presented, students solve the
problems, and then they record their answers according to the choices provided.
One choice in each set is N, meaning that the problem's solution is not given among
the choices presented.

Level 8

The same description as Level 7 with this addition to Part 2:
For some other questions, students select a number sentence that could be used to
solve the problem.

Levels 914

Administered in two parts
Students must demonstrate an understanding of Mathematics concepts, relationships,
visual representations, and problem solving. The questions deal with number sense
and operations, algebraic patterns and connections, data analysis, probability,
statistics, geometry, and measurement.

Levels 1517/18

Measures students' ability to solve quantitative problems
The questions present problems that require basic arithmetic and measurement, estimation,
data interpretation, and logical thinking. The questions are drawn from the areas
of number sense and operations, algebraic patterns and connections, data analysis,
probability, statistics, geometry, and measurement
