Summary This paper comments on and adapts the screening profile developed from 'ACER Mathematics Profile Series (MAPS): Operations' (1977). A sample screening profile worksheet for 'Operations' is provided. This adaptation of the ACER MAPS Operations test may help teachers identify students who are able to use more advanced levels of mathematical thinking. Survey results may help form ability groups, deliver special needs curriculum materials, and guide students tackling the algebra curriculum.
