The Party Assessment Demonstration

The Early Mathematics Assessment System (EMAS), also referred to as The Party, is a research-based assessment of early mathematical thinking that draws on both modern cognitive science and developmental and educational research. The Party, developed by Dr. Herbert Ginsburg and colleagues at Teachers College, Columbia University, was designed to measure a broad range of mathematical content (numeracy, computation, patterning, geometry and spatial sense). The domains assessed by The Party are aligned with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2000). Teachers use a flipbook and manipulatives to administer the assessment and enter data directly on-line (typical administration lasts roughly 20 minutes).
