SMAD - the Secondary Mathematics Asssessment Database - is now on the Web, containing a small number of assessment items.
It needs to be tested thoroughly before the number of items is significantly expanded, and before I announce generally that it is open for business. If you have a web browser, I would appreciate it if you could visit the site, download some assessment documents, and let me know how it worked for you.
The database consists of a series of web pages organised hierarchically by level (Junior, Senior), then by topic (eg Space) and finally by subtopic (eg 3-D Shapes). It also contains a page for Maths Competition questions, and a page for issues relating to alternative assessment in secondary mathematics.
To use SMAD, follow links until you find some assessment that you wish to download, then click on the title. Depending on how your web browser is configured, the document will be either saved to a file, or your browswer will open your word processor and load the document directly into it.
Don't forget to sign the visitor's book before you leave!
BTW, the search facility wasn't working when I tested it this evening. I've notified the programmer that maintains this site. So don't get too concerned if you try it and get an error message.
