For data collection, this study applies qualitative design using interview methods. The result indicated that only four respondents were able to solve all the learning activities at the application level that involved concepts and facts of mathematics, procedures for selection and definition and giving reasons. Two respondents were at the level of knowledge acquisition. This level involved elaborating basic facts, defining and formulating operations that were used in the learning activities. In conclusion, through the e-Numeracy application, student is able to recognize his numeracy level of comprehension and the student can identify their error directly as well as the students enjoyed using this application.
