Topical Diagnostic Mathematics is a series of six books specially written for primary pupils based on the Ministry of Education’s New Mathematics Syllabus. Each book contains graded PRE-TESTS, STEP-BY-STEP LEARNING EXERCISES and POST-TESTS designed to help pupils acquire the necessary mathematical concepts and skills.
Tow achieve the above objective, this series highlights a diagnostic approach to systematic monitoring of pupils’ progress. The PRE-TESTS and POST-TESTS, which are diagnostic in nature, measure the extent of the curriculum on every mathematical concept or skill that a pupil needs to master. Teachers and parents may use these tests to pinpoint pupil’s areas of difficulty. PRE-TESTS and POST-TESTS are parallel tests. Each item in a PRE-TEST corresponds to a similar item in the POST-TEST, both of which assess the same instructional objective.
