Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Math Anchor Papers

In addition to rubrics, Exemplars performance material also includes annotated anchor papers for each assessment.

Samples of student work are provided at each of the four levels of the Exemplars rubric: Novice, Apprentice, Practitioner and Expert. The marked annotations identify important distinctions for teachers to look for when assessing students.

These visual examples can be useful in providing students with a concrete understanding of what works meets the standard (and why). Anchor papers can also be used as a basis for student peer- and self-assessment and in staff development.

Here's What People Are Saying

"I love Exemplars. In fact, it is all I want to do with the kids. I am amazed at the thought processes it evokes from the children. Exemplars gives a perfect view into the child's thinking and their minds. Exemplars tasks also give the child who has difficulty grasping math concepts the opportunity to explore, and apply techniques and thoughts to the mathematical process."
