Number sense is a key indicator of future math success. Now there's a quick, reliable, and affordable way to screen early numerical competencies in Grades K-1 and identify students at risk for later math struggles.
Developed by Nancy Jordan-a leading expert on children's math difficulties-and quantitative psychologist Joseph Glutting, the research-based NSS (TM) screens children on six key competencies related to number sense. Easy to complete in just 15 to 20 minutes per child with no training required, NSS gives educators and school psychologists the information they need to
Catch at-risk students early. NSS pinpoints young children who may be at risk for learning difficulties in math, before their struggles with math intensify.
Predict later achievement. NSS predicts mathematic achievement through at least third grade, so it's easy to see where young learners need additional support to avoid falling behind.
Start planning effective interventions. Results of NSS give educators clear information they can use to target their math interventions and meet each student's learning needs.
Monitor progress. NSS can be conducted several times in kindergarten and in the beginning of first grade, so educators can track students' progress and identify areas in which students need more support.
Meet national and state standards. The areas assessed on the NSS are aligned with the Common Core State Standards in Kindergarten and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards and Focal Points.
The complete NSS includes a User's Guide with clear and specific instructions, a Stimulus Book with all the visual stimuli needed to administer the items, an explicit Quick Script users can follow for accurate administration, and a pack of 25 Record Sheets to record student responses.
