Mathematics is a core subject in almost every school curriculum. There are numerous topics and prerequisite skills which students are expected to learn to hold them in good stead for life and further learning. In higher years of schooling students might also be expected to master skills within more complex mathematical topics such as calculus to be able to progress towards more challenging applications of mathematical knowledge. There are perhaps three different families of mathematics assessment as described in the following paragraphs.

The majority of mathematics assessments are dedicated to measuring the extent to which students have grasped the skills embedded across grade-specific learning areas such as arithmetic operations or the application of geometric rules. Many traditional multiple-choice maths tests used in state-wide assessment programs are typical examples.

Another approach to mathematics assessment involves diagnosing misconceptions. These assessments attempt to provide skill-specific feedback which educators can use to help students overcome conceptual or procedural misunderstandings.

A number of mathematics assessments focus on more general and transferable abilities such as problem-solving processes, logical reasoning and what is sometimes termed mathematical thinking. These assessments are often motivated by the idea that these skills will lead to successful participation in a 21st century information society and economy. A range of individual and collaborative problem-solving assessments can be viewed under K12 problem solving and K12 collaborative problem solving respectively.
