Add+Vantage Math Recovery (AVMR)

The Add+VantageMR® program provides teachers with efficient and effective assessment tools to recognize their students’ current understandings of number concepts, and to support data‐driven instruction. Forming collegial teams is encouraged during the course to provide for ongoing study. Add+VantageMR® assessment and analysis is particularly useful in forming small group instruction within a math classroom.
