Middle School A+ / TMSCA Number Sense Auto-Generated Practice Tests

I’ve been very surprised (and pleased!) by the response of my Auto-Generated High School Number Sense practice exams — we’ve reached upwards of 3,000 total downloads since I began posting about them earlier this year!

As a result of their popularity, several individuals have asked me to produce something similar for the Middle School version of the exam. Since I recently reached my goal of 10,000 questions for my high school competition database, I decided to switch gears and focus on starting up a similar Middle School database. Over the past two weeks, I was able to generate 2,000 questions (sorted in the same way as the high school exam) and I’ve produced my first Auto-generated Exam and Answer Key (which you can download via the links).

I also created a Middle School repository where students can access all the number sense practice exams I generate for free. For the time being, I still intend to publish them on a weekly basis but will ultimately create a button where students can generate a practice test anytime they want a new one. I hope to have this implemented by the end of June — so stay tuned!

  1. I appreciate your time to sort sample Number Sense for my kids practicing during this summer where I find your website. Nice to know that you are expert to auto-generate sample with answer keys. Is there any Calculator Application sample to look for?

    1. Currently I do not have an Calculator Applications sample tests — mostly because the word/geometry problems are difficult for me to code in LaTeX. I could produce practice material for the “punch problems” (e.g., the strictly numerical problems), but I’m afraid that it might be difficult to format them the same as the actual test.

      What makes Number Sense exams unique and easier to automate is that the questions are relatively simple and are easy to type of in LaTeX // with Calculator (and Math, as well), it requires a lot more work that I don’t particularly have the time to invest in. Sorry that this isn’t the response you are probably looking for…
