Early Mathematics Assessment System - Kindergarten Fall
The Early Mathematics Assessment System (EMAS) is a reliable and valid research-based assessment of early mathematical thinking that draws on both modern cognitive science and developmental and educational research. The EMAS was created by Dr. Herb Ginsburg and colleagues at Teachers College, Columbia University. Expanded and adapted by researchers at the University of Virginia's Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL), the EMAS is designed to measure a broad range of mathematical content.
The videos below provide a demonstration of the Kindergarten Fall EMAS. You can watch the "full video" demonstration, which includes all four modules that make up the EMAS: Geometry, Patterning, Numeracy, and Computation.
Or, you can also review the assessment module-by-module.
Please note: If you have a slow internet connection speed or experience buffering while watching the full assessment video (video stops, skips, or pauses), we recommend you use the module-by-module approach.
