If your school uses the Marzano Framework or iObservations for Teacher Evaluations, this product will save you weeks of work! These pages present Learning Goals and Scales, also called Proficiency Scales, with concrete exercises to prove mastery at every level. These Leveled Assessments create a clear goal for you and your students to identify areas of need, target instruction, and follow up with post-testing. Inspired by Marzano's research in “The NEW Art and Science of Teaching: A Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction,” they perfectly align to a growth mindset, standards-based grading, and make differentiation planning easy! These assessment rubrics are fully aligned to Common Core and most states' standards.

These assessment guides and rubrics can be used in any classroom. The simplified student-friendly language of the scales can be assessed in more specific terms with the rubrics. In Writing Standard 1, “Write arguments to support claims…”, the rubric will highlight each subskill of the standard and give a description to identify the proficiency level. It’s up to the teacher’s judgement to determine the level.
