High-Quality Assessment and Instruction
Exemplars publishes real-world performance tasks for assessment and instruction in math, science and writing. Our material can also be used in student portfolios, to enrich staff development or as a pre- and post-test to track student progress.
Our engaging standards-based performance tasks are:
- Effective supplements for use in Title I programs and the traditional classroom
- Engaging for students and promote reasoning and communication
- Differentiated at 3 levels of performance in math to meet individual learning needs
- Aligned to state, national and Common Core standards
Rubrics and annotated anchor papers (hallmarks of Exemplars) 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 students' specific strengths and weaknesses in problem-solving, science-process and communication skills.
Our goal is to provide Title I teachers with the fundamental tools to integrate successful performance-based assessment and instruction in a user-friendly way. Doing so enables teachers to help students reach higher levels of achievement and gain greater understanding, meeting state, national and Common Core standards.
