Where can I find the test results?

To access the results, go to your account, select the Report Page, and then the Yearly Dashboard. In the "Benchmark Assessments" section, you will find three circles and three numbers corresponding to:

  • the BOY score (Beginning-of-Year test score),

  • the MY score (Mid-Year test score, if taken), and

  • the EOY score (End-of-Year test score).

To learn more about how to read the scores, please follow this link.

The number in the Growth column represents the difference between the EOY and BOY scores, indicating the Math Growth.

In addition to the specific scores, you will see colored dots indicating how a student’s assessment performance compares with their grade level.

There are four possible categories that students may fall into based on their scores:

  • Students who are far below grade level (pink dot)

  • Students who are below grade level (yellow dot)

  • Students who are on grade level (light green dot)

  • Students who exceed grade level readiness (dark green dot)

Can I see student responses on the test?

As Happy Numbers assessments are powered by The Quantile® Framework for Mathematics, the assessment items must remain confidential. This is to comply with the MetaMetrics privacy policy and maintain the validity of the test.

How to evaluate the EOY scores?

The End-of-Year Test shows your students' next grade readiness. For each grade level, we have separated out groups of students based on their scores. You can see their levels here. For a quick check, look at the circle near the score.

  • A dark green circle indicates that the student is ready for the next grade.

  • A light green circle indicates that the student’s result aligns with the current grade level.

  • A yellow circle indicates that the student's result is one grade below their current grade level.

  • A pink circle indicates that the student's result is two or more grades below their current grade level.

How can I evaluate math growth?

Having analyzed the data from previous school years, we have developed growth expectations based on the category the student falls into according to their Placement Test result. The table below shows the expected growth from BOY to EOY for students who completed at least 132 tasks on Happy Numbers during the school year and started using Happy Numbers no later than September 30th.

As a reference, please note that in the Happy Numbers scoring system, a growth of 100 points is approximately equivalent to one year of curriculum growth.

Why might a student have a lower score on the End-of-Year Test than on the Placement Test?

Sometimes you see negative growth. This could have happened for various reasons. Here are the most common ones:

  1. A student received assistance from parents or older siblings during the Placement Test. In this case, the Placement Test results can be extremely high, but the EOY Test shows the real level.

  2. Students didn’t do their best during the EOY Test. We try to make our content as friendly as possible, but for a variety of reasons, students can get overwhelmed, bored, or tired when taking the test and just click on any answer. In this case, it is best to reset the test. Learn how to do so below.

How can I reset the test?

In case you are not satisfied with the test results for a good reason, there is always the option to reset it within 14 days after the test is taken. To do so, choose the Assessment tab in your account and click the Reset button opposite the name of the student who needs to take the test again.
