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 the Project IMPULS, see
