Quickly and easily determine which CAMS Plus & STAMS Plus level your students are on with the free CAMS Plus & STAMS Plus Placement Book!
The CAMS & STAMS Plus program is based on yours student's maths ability, not year level. The purpose of the placement book evaluation is to test each individual student's maths ability and place them on the correct CAMS & STAMS level for this ability.
This will mean that a class may consist of three different CAMS & STAMS levels; however the program was developed for this and makes it easy to teach multiple levels in one class.
How to use the Placement Book:
1. Choose a test with content appropriate to the year level of your student.
2. Test. Depending on how much time you have, either start from the first test or from about three levels below your student's year level and have them take that test.
3. Placement. If the student gets less than 8 correct, have them move down a level and try that test. If they get between 8-13 correct they are on the correct level. If they get 14 or more correct, they can go up a level and try the next test. Once you are satisfied they are on the correct level for their ability, students then stay on that level for the entire CAMS & STAMS program (normally the entire year). If they are excelling or need extra practice, give them Solve exercises. The next step after the Placement Book is the CAMS Plus Pre-tests.
