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.

They have seen students enticed to communicate their thoughts to peers as well as communicating their explanations on paper. Teachers have seen best practices for establishing a working community in the classroom...
