  • Catalog: Yearly from 2014 to 2014
  • Localized to: English
  • Description:

    Share of 6th grade students scoring higher than 521.5 but below 609.6 on the PASEC mathematics scale. Students at Level 2 have reached the Sufficient Competency Threshold, and are able to answer brief arithmetic, measurement and geometry questions by resorting to the three assessed processes: knowing, applying and reasoning. Some questions call on factual knowledge or a scientific approach; others require analysis of a situation prior to determining the appropriate approach. In arithmetic, students can perform operations with decimal numbers and can also solve familiar problems by analyzing the wording of the question or extracting data from a double-entry table. They know how to complete logical series with decimal numbers or fractions. In measurement, pupils can tell the time and convert units of measurement with or without a conversion table. They are also able to solve arithmetic problems involving operations with units of length or days, hours and minutes. In geometry, pupils know the names of certain solids, basic geometric shapes and some characteristic lines (diagonal, median). Data were published for this indicator beginning with PASEC 2014.
