Using an Early Numeracy Screener to Predict Future Math Achievement

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1,5
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 4: Assessment and Intervention in an RTI Framework

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. examine how to better utilize curriculum-based measurements to aid professionals in identifying students with math difficulties in prekindergarten.
  2. learn more about the CIRCLE-PM measure and examine its ability to predict students' future mathematics performance.
  3. explore prekindergarten early numeracy screening measures available and how early numeracy skills impacts students' performance in subsequent grades as well as their career choices.


Do early numeracy skills predict future mathematic performance? This poster will provide practitioners an overview of the results from a study examining the predictive utility of the CIRCLE-PM Pre-Kindergarten mathematic measure to determine if it is able to predict student’s performance on the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test in kindergarten. Practitioners will also learn how to better utilize curriculum-based measurements in the identification of students with early mathematics difficulties.
