### Description

If your school requires Proficiency Scales, Standards Based Grading, or evaluates based on Marzano Framework, this product will save you weeks of work! 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!

Take the guess-work out of Learning Goals & Scales! Every standard from "Geometry" (4G.1-3) have been done for you in a concrete assessment that creates a clear goal for you and your students. Download this FREE RESOURCE complete with explanations, assessment pages, and an answer key.

**UPDATED Feature: FULLY EDITABLE Learning Goal statements on every Assessment page so that you can revise them to match the EDITABLE Posters with Marzano Learning Goals and Scales. (See link to grade-level Posters below.) Whether your district requires specific phrasing for each scale, or your State standards are slightly modified from the original Common Core language, you will be able to adjust the goal statements for each level of the Assessment. The leveled content will remain the same to ensure an accurate progression of skills and copyright. Visit this blog post for examples and directions. EDITABLE MATH ASSESSMENTS

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 five scales from 0-4 (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. A score of 0 on the learning scale is useful to record for students who have been given an opportunity to work on the assessment, but did not or could not perform for some reason.

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!

The left column (5th-8th) provides space for students to record numerical answers to questions. It is organized this way so that teachers can quickly review students’ answers for accuracy. This document includes a detailed ANSWER KEY with numerical solutions, as well as sample answers for written explanations.
