Comprehensive Assessment of Mathematics Strategies (CAMS) is designed specifically to provide data for targeted instruction with the STAMS Plus Series, and can be used to measure your students' progress in and mastery of 16 fundamental maths strategies.

Each CAMS Plus student book is comprised of 16 pretests, 4 benchmark tests, 16 post tests and self-assessment forms for students to monitor their own progress. The pretest diagnoses each student's strengths and weaknesses, and guides their placement in the STAMS Plus Series. The benchmarks and post tests are tools for the teacher to assess student mastery of the strategies throughout the instruction, and at the end of the year. The self-assessment forms encourage students to reflect on their learning, as well as to set goals for themselves.

Each CAMS Plus teacher guide includes everything a teacher will require to facilitate, administer and grade the assessments presented in the CAMS Plus student book. The teacher guide features information on how and when to use the pretests, benchmarks and post tests, as well as how to record the appropriate data so it can be used to guide instruction with the STAMS Plus Series. Reproducible resources include:

  • Individual record sheet - track individual student progress in all 16 strategies introduced in the CAMS Plus student book to determine areas requiring instruction with STAMS Plus
  • Individual performance graph - construct a column graph to easily illustrate the student's strengths and weaknesses for parents or administrators
  • Class record sheet - available for the pretests, benchmarks and post tests, these record sheets are the perfect resource to assess the class as a whole

Most importantly, the CAMS Plus teacher guide also includes the answer keys for each test in the student book, making assessment even easier.

Strategies to Achieve Mathematics Success provides students with explicit instruction of 16 maths topics, which cover both concepts and skills, that have been identified as the most important instructional goals for each year level.

Each STAMS Plus student book contains 16 highly scaffolded, five-part lessons. Each of these lessons helps students to become independent learners as they are moved through each of the five parts: modelled instruction, guided instruction, modelled practice, guided practice and independent practice. In this way, students are required to use increasing degrees of higher-level thinking to analyse and explain their answers as they move through practice problems that increase in difficulty, ultimately building student proficiency and confidence.

While the lessons introduced in the STAMS Plus student book do not require teacher instruction, students learn best when guided by a knowledgeable, supportive teacher. The STAMS Plus teacher guide provides teachers with a solid framework to promote understanding in their students, with step-by-step instructions on how to best teach the strategy. The beginning of each lesson also includes in-depth information on the mathematical background of the concept or skill being addressed, as well as definitions of any new terms used. Teacher supports that are featured in each lesson of the STAMS Plus teacher guide include:

  • Tip - provides on-the-spot information the teacher can use to build students' understanding of the concept or skill
  • EAL/D Support - targets at point-of-use a language issue that may be affecting English as an
  • Additional Language or Dialect students' ability to understand the maths
  • Error Alert - Addresses common errors or misconceptions that lead students to an incorrect answer
  • Answer Analysis - explains why the answer is correct and identifies the types of errors students commonly make in choosing incorrect answer choices
