Conceptual Place Value (CPV)The CPV is administered in grades 1 through 3 to determine students’ mathematical number sense and math readiness based on required knowledge and skills, interests and learning profiles. The focus of the CPV is on reasoning, problem solving, number sense and thinking algebraically. Strategies used with the CPV include addition and subtraction with multi-digit numbers and understanding the base 10 number system. The CPV links to the academic standards for math.
The CPV is a district developed assessment and is used by teachers to determine a student’s math acquisition. Teachers are able to identify areas of strength and areas of need. Using data, teachers are able to identify who needs extra support, along with who may face additional challenges.
The time students take to complete the CPV varies from 5 to 10 minutes. When students answer a task in error, the teacher stops the test.
The CPV is administered at the end of each trimester.
Results are immediately available for teachers following the elementary data collection calendar, and results are shared with parents/guardians in the A-H parent portal.
