Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Teacher Sessions

Integrating Content, Problem Solving and Assessment in the Classroom to Support the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practice

This mathematics workshop is designed for participants who have a stronger understanding of performance-based assessment and instruction and the Exemplars assessment rubric. Typically, participants will have completed training sessions for Levels 1–3. The focus shifts from the classroom level to the school/district level to assure success.

In this session, participants will:

  • Assess students' work to identify school/district benchmarks
  • Create and modify existing problem-solving tasks, including Preliminary Planning Sheets, for working/assessment portfolios
  • Analyze, interpret and use assessment data to improve teaching and learning
  • Discuss meaningful feedback for students aimed at improving mathematical performance
  • Develop assessment resources at the grade, school and/or district level
  • Use results from multiple performance assessments to improve performance at the school/district level
  • Address individual/classroom/grade-level/school/district assessment needs
  • Develop/Select formative and summative assessments at the school/district level
  • Embed problem solving into core curriculum to support CCSSM

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

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.
