Arithmetika - mathematics assessment and diagnostics

Diagnostic testing goes adaptive in 2021

Arithmetika introduces HowImDoing, the way for students and their teachers, parents and tutors to pinpont with ease exactly how they are progressing through the curriculum - and to identify topics they need to focus on.

HowImDoing replaces both of Arithmetika's previous adaptive and diagnostic tools, combining the best features of each, and is free for all students to use! Just hit the 'Student join up' link above.

The Sticky Star Programme is bigger than ever!

A carefully graduated sequence of exercises takes students from basic number skills through to the end of the high-school curriculum. The Sticky Star Programme challenges you to aim for mastery.

There are hundreds of sticky stars to be won as you progress through the Australian Mathematics Curriculum. Each time you complete five tasks to 100% you earn another valued sticky star.

You need to be in an Arithmetika class (organised by a parent, teacher or tutor) to join the Sticky Star Programme.



Arithmetika is mathematics assessment as you'll see nowhere else

Arithmetika assessment is a serious business. It is not 'cool', It is not 'fun'. It is not a game.

Nor is it a teaching resource. We leave that to others. This is a mid-teaching (formative) and post-teaching (summative) assessment resource. All Arithmetika tasks can be used both as summative and formative assessment tools.

Just scroll further down this page to click on one of the sample task links to see for yourself the student assessment environment in Arithmetika. This is as about as much 'fun' as it gets! Assessment aims to be as close as possible to the paper test experience.

  • Proper answers required, not multiple choice
  • Automatic marking including algebra
  • Never the same question twice
  • Every student answer to every question retained for analysis
  • Totally integrated package. You retain ownership and full management of all your data
  • Complete security of data to industry standards


Arithmetika is celebrating its twenty-first birthday!

Since 2000 Arithmetika has been providing a variety of assessment tools. Arithmetika was designed in Australia and is still owned and managed in Australia.

  • HowImDoing
  • The sticky star program
  • Assignments
  • Traditional tasks
  • Timed tasks to demonstrate 'mastery'
  • Untimed tasks to allow for 'practice making perfect'

The unique Arithmetika assessment experience.

Imagine a maths quiz, exercise or test that is different every time you look at it! Imagine a quiz where the computer knows the answers to real questions, not just multiple choice and number only questions, and does all the marking whatever the question.

Education as it used to be:


For Teachers (schools)

Arithmetika prides itself on providing the means to enhance all three corners of the classroom experience - teaching, learning and assessment. You teach, assisted by the materials in Arithmetika; your students practise what you have taught using the Adaptive (formative) learning exercises; and you set tasks to measure and monitor student progress (summative assessment).

For Tutors

Assign tasks to your students and monitor their progress between visits! Link up with parents and teachers.

For Parents (families)

In Arithmetika you will find a very novel and profitable way to help your child with the important but difficult subject of mathematics. If your child is at an Arithmetika school you can ask to have your own secure access to the maths work your child is doing. If you start a Family account you can directly manage all your child's mathematical activity!
