Ace it! small group Math programs use evidence-based small-group strategies to address the diverse needs of students within each group. Once a student completes the Group Mathematics Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation (GMADE) for the math program, the student is placed in a group with students who have similar academic needs.

The GMADE is from Pearson and designed to be administered easily in a small group setting. The results are used to place students in instructional groups and to measure the progress of each student at appropriate points in the program.
