The Scaled Assessments for Math are designed with the idea that students learn skills and understand concepts in a progressive way. Instead of presenting students with an assessment that is pass or fail, right or wrong, this assessment recognizes what a child already knows (usually scales 1-2), and creates a clear model of what the child is expected to understand by the end of the year (scales 3-4). Inspired by Marzano's research in “The Art and Science of Teaching” this assessment breaks down every math standard into four scales from 1-4 (levels of difficulty), with a learning goal statement accompanying each one.
Proficiency in each math standard is represented by a score of 3. A score of 4 indicates an advanced knowledge of the skill, usually above grade level. The tasks assigned to scores of 2 and 1, are either derived from sub-skills of the standard, or from the background knowledge of earlier grade levels. Often the content from earlier grade levels will be labeled with the corresponding standard for reference purposes.
This format is designed to scaffold skill mastery, so it can be used as a pre-assessment and a post-assessment. The pre-assessment will let you know what skills your students have to begin instruction and differentiation. Allowing students to continue where they left off as a post-assessment will help them feel rewarded for what they already know and see their progress in a concrete way!
