Organizing Timed Tests

Hi friends! This is going to be a quick one today. I am linking up with Kristen and Elizabeth (two of my favorite bloggers) to share my timed test organization!

Have you seen these pretty accordion style check file things at Target's Dollar Spot?timed test, file, picture

I used one to organize my multiplication timed tests. I cut the tests into strips {freebie linked below}
and filed accordingly. In my classroom, I differentiate fact mastery by allowing all students to take a fact test at their own pace. This system of having them precut and filed saved me so much time when passing out the different tests.

Here are my students taking their tests! I will come back and write another post about my Out of This World Multiplication Mastery wall....

If you give timed tests, feel free to grab the freebie below. My team and I have used these for the past 2 years. The kids love them because the assessment is super quick and not overwhelming. I love that I can grade/score a whole class set in no time at all. If you grab it, I would love to hear from you!

Head back over to Fun in Room 4B to see her awesome tip for organizing all your digital papers and clipart... pure genius! 


  1. What a great tip! I do give timed tests and differentiate as well...so this is perfect! Thank you for linking up with us!

  2. I wanted to organize my timed test like this last year, but my test were too big! They were two to a sheet. I grabbed your freebie! I love that they'll fit into the Target folders and that they are 3 to a page...saves paper!! Thanks so much!

  3. I LOVE this idea...I am going to use the these for word study tests too! Thanks for sharing!
