Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Support For Title I Math

Exemplars differentiated 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.

Specific accounts of how our material is used in Title I programs can be viewed here.

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 problem-solving process 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 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.

Here's What People Are Saying

I have been in education for over 18 years and have seen programs come and go. Exemplars is one of the few initiatives that has proved effective time and time again!
