The CWRA+ is sold by Council for Aid to Education, Inc. It uses Performance Tasks to assess critical-thinking skills. These tasks deliver problem-based assessment by challenging students to address real-life issues. Performance-based assessments, such as CWRA+, challenge students to demonstrate skills, rather than to simply recall information. Students need to be able to analyze and evaluate information, solve problems, and communicate effectively. Students must be able to access, structure, and use information rather than just accumulating facts. This instrument has no published psychometrics and is not widely used.

The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010-11 (ECLS-K:11) includes a set of cognitive assessments designed to measure conceptual knowledge, procedural knowledge, and problem solving within specific content strands across a full set of grade-level assessments. Made to focus on children's early school experiences by following children from grades K-5, the assessment data and longitudinal nature of the test enabled researchers to study how a wide range of factors are associated with school performance and progression. Content covered in third, fourth, and fifth grades was determined by comparing the state or national standards from Texas, Virginia, NAEP, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The target content percentages for third, fourth, and fifth grades are based on the fourth-grade recommendations in the 2011 NAEP frameworks.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) mathematics assessment is given every two years to students at grades 4 and 8, and approximately every four years at grade 12. The assessment measures both mathematics knowledge and the students’ ability to apply their knowledge in problem-solving situations. The results present a broad view of students’ mathematics knowledge, skills, and performance over time. The most recent mathematics assessment was given in 2019 to approximately 149,500 students in grade 4 and 147,400 students in grade 8. The instruments used in the NAEP mathematics assessment are composed of blocks of cognitive items from the previous NAEP assessments, as well as blocks that are newly developed for the current assessment.

The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) assessment for grade 8 is an international standardized test that measures math reasoning and problem solving in algebra, geometry, data analysis, and probability. The assessment is then analyzed to provide data on the mathematics achievement of U.S. students compared to that of students in other countries. TIMSS is in the process of transitioning to a digitally-based assessment called eTIMSS. The test provides reliable and timely data on the mathematics and science achievement of U.S. students compared to that of students in other countries. TIMSS data have been collected from students at grades 4 and 8 since 1995 every 4 years, generally. In addition, TIMSS Advanced measures advanced mathematics and physics achievement in the final year of secondary school across countries. TIMSS Advanced data have been collected internationally three times, in 1995, 2008 and 2015. The United States participated in TIMSS Advanced in 1995 and 2015. TIMSS is sponsored by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) and conducted in the United States by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The most recent TIMSS data collection was in 2015 and included students in grades 4, 8 and 12.
