Standards-based assessment and Instruction

A Formative Assessment Tool

Exemplars performance tasks were developed to help teachers successfully integrate formative assessment into their classrooms.

Our differentiated math tasks and rubrics can be easily incorporated into your curriculum to enrich instruction and/or assessment.

Annotated anchor papers provide teachers with examples of student work at the 4 levels of Exemplars rubric. These also provide students with a concrete understanding of what work meets the standard (and why) as well as an effective professional development resources.

Student rubrics and annotated anchor papers can be used by students to compare their work to during peer- and self-appraisals. This process demonstrates success as well as offers opportunities for refinement. Based on student performance, teaching and learning strategies can be adjusted.

Here's What People Are Saying

In a number of recent studies comparing approaches to teaching mathematics in countries around the world, a list of 'best practices principles' have been identified. The Exemplars math program reflects the most important of these 'best practices principles,' and offers teachers a curriculum for teaching mathematics and assessing mathematical expertise from a contextual, problem focused point of view. The program is terrific.
