Standards-based assessment and Instruction

# Rubric Support for CCSS

## Exemplars performance material supports the Common Core State Standards.

Our differentiated tasks engage students and promote conceptual understanding, problem solving and higher-order thinking skills. Rubrics and anchor papers provide educators with effective tools to identify what a student's work demonstrates about his/her mathematical understanding and problem-solving strengths and weaknesses

#### Below is an example of how our assessment rubric supports the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice.

The ccss for mathematical practice are comprised of the following Exemplars rubric criteria from the "Practitioner Level" supports ccss by requiring students to do the following in order to meet the standard:
MAKE SENSE OF PROBLEMS AND PERSEVERE IN SOLVING THEM.

## Problem Solving

• A correct strategy is chosen based on mathematical situation in the task.
• Evidence of solidifying prior knowledge and applying it to the problem- solving situation is present.
• Planning or monitoring of a strategy is evident

## Reasoning and Proof

• A systematic approach and/or justification of correct reasoning is present. This may lead to:
• exploration of mathematical phenomenon.

## Representations

• Appropriate and accurate mathematical representations are constructed and refined to solve problems or portray solutions.
REASON ABSRACTLY AND QUANTITATIVELY.

## Reasoning and Proof

• Arguments are constructed with adequate mathematical basis.
• A systematic approach and/or justification of correct reasoning is present. This may lead to:
• exploration of mathematical phenomenon.

## Representations

• Appropriate and accurate mathematical representations are constructed and refined to solve problems or portray solutions.

## Communication

• Formal math language is used throughout the solution to share and clarify ideas.
CONSTRUCT VIABLE ARGUMENTS AND CRITIQUE THE REASONING OF OTHERS.

## Problem Solving

• Evidence of solidifying prior knowledge and applying it to the problem-solving situation is present.

## Reasoning and Proof

• Arguments are constructed with adequate mathematical basis.
• A systematic approach and/or justification of correct reasoning are/is present.
• Exploration of mathematical phenomenon.

## Communications

• A sense of audience or purpose is communicated.
• Communication of an approach is evident through a methodical, organized, coherent sequenced and labeled response.

## Representations

• Appropriate and accurate mathematical representations are constructed and refined to solve problems or portray solutions.
