This workshop is designed to give math teams, coaches and mentors the tools they need to support their colleagues in implementing standards-based assessment and instruction to support the the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practice effectively in their schools.

In this session, participants will:

  • Learn what to look for in a standards-based mathematics classroom
  • Review Exemplars assessment rubric
  • Assess student work to build reliability and validity with Exemplars assessment rubric
  • Assess student work at the individual/class/grade/school/district level to determine:
    • What do we know our students know?
    • How well are our students performing?
    • Why are our students performing this way?
    • What do our students need to relearn, practice?
    • What do we learn about our teaching?
    • What are our next steps for these students?
  • Discuss possible actions for supporting peers
  • Use samples of student work to share strategies (questioning, connections, representation, mathematical language, etc.) necessary to raise students to the Practitioner level (meeting the standard) and beyond:
  • Begin/Develop an assessment system that supports CCSSM
  • Select performance tasks for working portfolios
  • Select performance tasks for assessment portfolios
  • Select grade-level/school/district anchor papers
  • Discuss calibration/scoring sessions

Our teacher-friendly tasks are designed to support both the Common Core and Citywide instructional expectations. GO Math! alignments are also available.
