Comprehensive Assessment of Mathematics Strategies is designed specifically to provide data for targeted instruction with the STAMS® Plus Series, and can be used to measure your students’ progress in and mastery of 16 fundamental maths strategies.

Each CAMS® Plus student book is comprised of 16 pretests, 4 benchmark tests, 16 post tests and self-assessment forms for students to monitor their own progress. The pretest diagnoses each student’s strengths and weaknesses, and guides their placement in the STAMS® Plus Series. The benchmarks and post tests are tools for the teacher to assess student mastery of the strategies throughout the instruction, and at the end of the year. The self-assessment forms encourage students to reflect on their learning, as well as to set goals for themselves.
