The Basic Numbers and Operations skills are mathematics building blocks every student should master at Junior levels of schools, before going to secondary schools. In the NUMERACY PRIMARY SKILL ASSESSMENT, there are four (4) tests addressing the Core Mathematics Content areas of the lower primary and lower secondary school syllabus.


The NUMERACY PRIMARY SKILL ASSESSMENT aims to help students to, firstly, practice their skills online and, secondly, identify the skills that they (the students) may not have mastered at this stage. The assessment is a self-paced (online) learning aid for students at primary schools, Grades 5 – 8. In hindsight, by Grade 8, the students are expected to complete the questions with over 90% accuracy.


In this test, we compile 50 multiple choice (MCQ) questions, each addressing skills that we feel are important. 


The questions in this assessment are listed according to the PNG Primary (Grades 5 and 6) and Lower Secondary (Grade 7 and 8) school syllabus. The difficulty of the mathematics skill questions range from EASY to HARD and are arranged in a cluster of units within each Core Mathematics Content (see below).

The Basic Numbers and Operations Skill test has 25 questions. This test is part of the 50 Multiple Choice Questions that make up the Numeracy Skill Assessment. As the creator of this assessment, I encourage students to take this assessment in full to know your full potential. 

Students can attempt the 50 questions in four sessions, according to the Core Mathematics Content. Or complete the assessment in one go. Check out the list below for the complete ONLINE SKILL TEST for Primary and Lower Secondary School Students.
