Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Student Communication

Communication is fundamental. It is not only the vehicle by which we convey our thinking to others, but it is the way in which we process information. As we organize our thoughts to communicate, we learn content - understanding how to communicate that content must be considered a basic skill in our schools today.

Communicating in math and science is not only critical, but it also gives students the opportunities to apply their communication skills in diverse content areas.

In this section of our website, we have collected material that will help teachers enhance their students' communication skills. It includes examples of rubrics, Exemplars math and science tasks used as writing and reading assessments. It also includes an example of a student reflecting on her math task in a digital portfolio.

Here's What People Are Saying

Our school subscribes to the Exemplars Library. I find the formative tasks aligned to the Common Core are strong and can be easily embedded in any curriculum. Having a more accessible and more challenging version of each task provides teachers' support as they have the resources to problem solve across different levels of understanding in their classrooms … Students are enjoying the tasks and are demonstrating a deeper understanding of the underlying concepts of the standards as they apply formal math language, accurate representations and connections.
