An English translation of the Japanese National Assessment test items
is now available at the Project IMPULS web page at

The assessment tests have been conducted annually for assessing the
student achievements in grade 6 and grade 9. The test consist of two
parts, A problems and B problems. A problems are designed to assess
students basic understanding, knowledge, and procedures. B problems
are designed to assess the students ability to apply mathematics.

Currently only the test items from 2012 and 2013 are available in
English. The Project IMPULS plans to translate more items from the
National Assessment in near future.

Project IMPLUS is a project funded by the Ministry of Education,
Culture, Sports, Science & Technology of Japan. (The Project is
housed in the Mathematics Education Department of Tokyo Gakugei
University, Tokyo, Japan. ) For information regarding the members of
