These pages present Learning Goals and Scales with concrete problems to prove mastery at every level. These Leveled Assessments create a clear goal for you and your students. They perfectly support a growth mindset model, and make differentiation planning easy! These posters are fully aligned to Common Core and most states' standards. Download the FREE PREVIEW to try for yourself!

This particular assessment was designed in cooperation with a teacher from Florida.

The Leveled 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.

The following learning goals and scales are designed with the idea that students learn skills and understand concepts in a progressive way. The scale is broken down into four categories, 1-4, for each common core standard. Each category has its own learning goal. These levels can also be aligned to Bloom’s or Marzano’s Taxonomy of easiest – hardest cognitive skills (Recall/Retrieval, Comprehension, Analysis, and Knowledge Utilization).

4. Level 4 indicates an advanced knowledge of the skill.

3. Level 3 represents proficiency in each math standard. see the stars*

2. Level 2 will include content from the previous grade level and new vocabulary that must be applied correctly for mastery of level 3.

1. Level 1 will either be derived from sub-skills of the standard, or from the background knowledge of earlier grade levels.

Help your students, families, and administrators SEE what they already know, and where the standard is leading them!

This format is designed to scaffold skill mastery, so the same pages can be used as a pre-assessment and a post-assessment. This is recommended! 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!

Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths 𝘢 and 𝘣 + 𝘤 is the sum of 𝘢 × 𝘣 and 𝘢 × 𝘤. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
