Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Intervention and Extended Learning

Exemplars authentic, problem-solving tasks are rich supplements for use in Title I programs and in the traditional classroom. Material can also be used for intervention and with after school tutoring programs and summer school sessions.

Exemplars

Our engaging and authentic, problem-solving math tasks are differentiated at three levels and designed to capture students' interests.

Rubrics and anchor papers (hallmarks of Exemplars) assist teachers in identifying students' specific strengths and areas to be improved in the problem-solving process. Doing so, enables teachers to help students reach higher levels of thinking and gain greater mathematical understanding.

Tasks emphasize NCTM process standards and may be used to assess student performance, to enhance instruction or as portfolio pieces. In addition, teachers may use Exemplars standards-based tasks:

  • To engage Title I students and closely evaluate mathematical understanding
  • As a tool for intervention
  • To extend learning opportunities for students as part of school tutoring sessions, after school programs or as part of summer school
  • To enhance other disciplinary areas
  • As a pre- and post-test to track student progress
  • To help students become strong self- and peer-assessors
  • As a problem of the week or for homework
  • To share with parents at conferences

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

Embedding Common Core aligned Exemplars tasks into our units of study has strengthened teachers understanding of the Common Core Learning Standards while improving student performance. Significant growth in student achievement has taken place across the grades in the Mathematical Practices ... even our youngest students do the work of real mathematicians to represent and solve authentic real-world problems.
