Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Improve Title I Student Performance

Differentiated Performance Tasks

Exemplars authentic, problem-solving tasks are effective supplements for use in Title I programs and the traditional classroom as well as for intervention and after school tutoring. Our differentiated material may be used for the purpose of assessment, instruction, portfolio pieces and/or professional development.

Exemplars standards-based tasks offer Title I programs:

  • Differentiated tasks for use with varying developmental levels. Each Exemplars task is differentiated at three performance levels. Teachers are able to incorporate different variations of a problem in the classroom as needed.
  • Real-world tasks that engage Title I students. With traditional assessments students may not be engaged, making it difficult to judge if student effort stands in the way of performance. Exemplars real-world tasks are designed to captivate students' interests, by creating problems that are relevant to them.
  • Tasks that emphasize NCTM problem-solving standards. Exemplars material places great emphasis on process standards. By focusing on mathematical problem solving and communication, teachers are able to look more closely at what Title I students' work demonstrates about their mathematical understanding.
  • Anchor papers and student rubrics for peer- and self-assessment.Exemplars annotated anchor papers and student rubrics provide Title I students with a concrete understanding of what work meets the standard and why, facilitating peer- and self-assessment. These tools also assist Title I teachers in identifying student's specific strengths and weaknesses in problems solving. Exemplars enables teachers to help students reach higher levels of thinking and gain greater understanding.
  • Comprehensive feedback for Title I teachers. Exemplars rubric criteria for assessing students' performance parallel the NCTM process standards. Our math tasks offer valuable formative information about student's mathematical understanding and reasoning along with important summative data.

Our teacher-friendly tasks are designed to support both the Common Core and Citywide instructional expectations. GO Math! alignments are also available.

Here's What People Are Saying

During one session in late August and another in mid-September, the team introduced Exemplars to the 46 New York City math teachers. The responses were overwhelmingly positive; teachers liked 'Tina's Quilt Squares,' the resource CD and the focus on problem solving...
