Low achievement in numeracy by primary school students is one of the biggest concerns of Zambia. Since it aims at developing the nation, development of the human resources is an inevitable issue to tackle. This research is to develop an assessment instrument to identify the students‟ level of numeracy competence. It pays attention to structure through the relevant previous researches such as Mulligan & Mitchelmore (2014) and Roberts (2015). As a result of the survey, the developed instrument identified distribution of different levels of competence, prevalence of counting-all strategy, and possible solutions to facilitate students‟ level of competence.
