Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Broad Agenda

Problem Solving for the Georgia Standards of Excellence, K–5: Performance Tasks, Rubrics and Anchor Papers

At this workshop, individuals will learn how to integrate Exemplars performance tasks and the criteria from our assessment rubric – Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Communication, Connections and Representation – into instruction to support the  Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) and the CCSS for Mathematical Content and Practice.

Participants will learn how to: create a supportive environment for math inquiry; identify what constitutes a good problem and problem solver; assess student work with proficiency; use assessment results to guide instruction and improve academic performance.

The Broad Agenda

  • Use Exemplars performance tasks that connect the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content and Practice as well as the GSE
  • Learn instructional techniques that promote the Mathematical Practices, students' higher-order thinking skills and mathematical communication
  • Use Exemplars rubrics and anchor papers to assess students' work and provide meaningful feedback
  • Make the link from assessment to instruction to improve teaching and learning
  • Define the language of assessment, mathematics, problem solving, Depth of Knowledge, Universal Design as well as types of portfolios
  • Differentiate problems to address individual students' needs
  • Help students become proficient in self-assessment

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

One additional benefit of using the modeling format has been that teachers not only saw an Exemplars mathematics lesson modeled as intended, but they have also had the opportunity to see numerous quality strategies for communicating with students. They have seen students enticed to communicate their thoughts to peers as well as communicating their explanations on paper. Teachers have seen best practices for establishing a working community in the classroom...
