This resource contains an 8 page benchmark assessment with 50 questions covering ALL of the 5th Grade Common Core Math Standards and the Sub-standards.This could even be used a the beginning of 6th grade to assess where your students are with the previous year's standards.
This can be used at the beginning of the year, middle of the year (after winter break), before and after units, or end of the year (prior or after state testing).
This assessment is not multiple choice so that I could get a clear picture of my students knowledge without them guessing and getting lucky. Also, when I give the assessment before state testing, I can see partial understandings and teach based on those. Multiple choice tests do not show partial understandings.
I know that 8 pages is a lot of paper for one test so I have listed a few options for use in the Notes to Teacher section.
I have also included several data analysis sheets to keep track of student data and growth.
