Instructions for Singapore Placement Tests
First, have your child take the placement test that matches what you think your child's grade level is for Singapore Math. If your child scores 80% or more, that indicates he knows the material well and is ready to go on to the next level. But a score of less than 80% indicates that you may want to begin at that level.
Scenario A: Your child takes the placement test for Singapore Math® 4A and scores an 85%. Because of his solid score, you move him up a level and have him take the 4B test. He then scores a 70%. This score indicates he doesn't fully understand the 4B material so you decide to start your child at the 4B level.
Scenario B: Your child takes the placement test for Singapore Math® 4A and scores an 30%. Because of his low score, you move him down a level and have him take the 3B test. This time he scores a 50%. His score is still relatively low, so you have him take the 3A test. He scores a 90%. Based on his low proficiency in 4A and his high proficiency in 3A, you decide to begin at the 3B level.
