 The SD 73 Numeracy Assessment (DNA) was designed by teachers for teachers. The DNA is intended for students in grades 3-9. The assessment was created in levels, so teachers with combined classes can administer one assessment to the whole class. If you have a combined class between two levels, please select the level that makes the best sense for your students.  Each problem was written and edited by our teachers and piloted in our classrooms.
