The Pattern and Structure Assessment (PASA) is a one-on-one assessment used to provide teachers with diagnostic information about how children think about mathematical ideas to inform teaching, not just on what mathematics children can and cannot do.

By knowing how children approach tasks, teachers can plan and scaffold individual learning experiences.

Using PASA with PAT Maths (PDF document) is a short guide and provides information for teachers wishing to use the PASA with PAT Maths, including:

  • The differences between the two instruments
  • Suggested best practice for assessing with PASA and PAT Maths
  • Revised descriptions of the lower PAT Maths achievement levels
  • Details of the equating study
