Standards-based assessment and Instruction

High-Quality Assessment and Instruction

Exemplars publishes real-world performance tasks for assessment and instruction in math, science and writing. Our material can also be used in student portfolios, to enrich staff development or as a pre- and post-test to track student progress.

Our engaging standards-based performance tasks are:

  • Effective supplements for use in Title I programs and the traditional classroom
  • Engaging for students and promote reasoning and communication
  • Differentiated at 3 levels of performance in math to meet individual learning needs
  • Aligned to state, national and Common Core standards

Rubrics and annotated anchor papers (hallmarks of Exemplars) provide Title I students with a concrete understanding of what work meets the standard and why, facilitating peer- and self-assessment. These tools also assist Title I teachers in identifying students' specific strengths and weaknesses in problem-solving, science-process and communication skills.

Our goal is to provide Title I teachers with the fundamental tools to integrate successful performance-based assessment and instruction in a user-friendly way. Doing so enables teachers to help students reach higher levels of achievement and gain greater understanding, meeting state, national and Common Core standards.

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