Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Broad Agenda

Problem Solving for Instruction & Assessment: 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 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
  • 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

If I think about all the strategies teachers have used to try to improve student achievement in math, the Exemplars program was the most powerful.
