3. Download Assignment 2 proforma from FLO This is the only submission format that will be accepted for marking. ? Based on your review of the data select two students (one from each spreadsheet) who you identified as having math difficulties. ? Do not select complex students as this is your first time practising the process. ? Record the question responses of your two selected students on the appropriate table. Example of how to complete the tables Numeration: Questions answered correctly Question number What question tested What student knew 1 Material to symbol 2 digit numbers 3 Sequencing 2 digit numbers
