Mathematics knowledge

 

The tests of every second grades consist of items similar to the subject-matter, whereas every first grades are assessed with items suitable for exploring the effect of mathematics on thinking development. One of the focal points of the tests in grade 3 and 5 is the concept of proportion together with the understanding of linear relationships. 
The test of basic calculations in grades 1 and 2 were constructed by Krisztián Józsa with the contribution of Zsuzsanna Szántó (teacher, Ottó Általános Iskola, Budapest). The test of subject matter knowledge and basic skills for grade 6 was developed by Csaba Csíkos and the test of mathematical thinking was developed by Benő Csapó.
