This product includes Common Core Math Proficiency Scales for 4th Grade Operations & Algebraic Thinking Standards. They are based upon Marzano's proficiency scales, but deliver a kid-friendly and parent-friendly version. They display a 1-4 scale for each Operations & Algebraic Thinking standard and a description of the skills necessary for each level. These scale descriptions could be used to set goals with students and provide communication to parents of the skills necessary for proficiency and success on state summative tests. As many schools adopt proficiency-based grading systems, these scales could be extremely useful in grading student proficiency.
