Description

Proficiency Scales are the ultimate Standards Based Grading tool! They don't just motivate a Growth Mindset, they define how students can demonstrate mastery. Every learning standard is broken down into 4 levels of Differentiation. Also known as a scaffold for learning. These Assessments lead students up a progressive learning path that mirrors the way they develop concepts. Aligned to Bloom’s or Marzano’s Taxonomy of cognitive skills. From easiest-hardest: (Recall/Retrieval, Comprehension, Analysis/Application, and Knowledge Utilization/Synthesis).

4 Learning Goal “I Can” Statements for each standard:

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.

Students review EASY learning goals from previous grade levels in sections, “Levels” 1 and 2. These first two levels set them up to see simple examples of the connections between what they know, and what they must do this year. “Level” 3, or section 3, includes questions they should master this year. “Level” 4 includes optional enrichment tasks for your gifted and talented thinkers.

How to Use these Assessments:

1. Print the standards you are currently planning to teach.

(Tasks for Levels 1 -4 fit on a single sheet of paper, two-sided.)

2. You may briefly review the standard and levels 1, 2, and 3 (in that order) so your students can access prior knowledge and pre-assess themselves. OR give it cold and see how they do as a pre-assessment.

3. Correct the pre-assessment, and share students’ results with them. Emphasize that this is NOT for a grade, but just to identify a starting place.

4. Use their scores to plan instruction, practice, review, small groups, or homework for your levels. (Sometimes I combine 3-4 and 1-2, so there are only two groups to differentiate for.)

5. Use the SAME Assessment sheet as a post-test!

Students will see their progress concretely! They should be allowed to correct old mistakes, and complete as many levels as possible to show mastery.

6. Record their final level in your gradebook.

7. Save the assessment in a portfolio folder to document student progress.

These are handy for parent conferences and teacher evaluations.

*Option: Use the leveled reading passages given, or assign the “ANY TEXT” worksheets as independent reading response forms! Great for homework or differentiated classroom practice.

The document includes...

* PDF version for printing, or assigned through Google Classroom with TPTs DIGITAL ACTIVITY feature.

BONUS* - Vocabulary Quizzes for each passage have been added to the end of this document!

1. Reading passages appropriate for this grade level.

2. Four leveled assessment pages for EACH COMMON CORE LEARNING STANDARD RL 1-10 that align to the four levels of the learning scale (1-4). These are based on the specific reading passages given.

3. A second set of four leveled assessment pages for EACH COMMON CORE LEARNING STANDARD RL 1-10 that align to the four levels of the learning scale (1-4). This second set can be used with “ANY TEXT” and includes general questions relating to each Learning Objective.

4. A detailed ANSWER KEY with sample answers for written explanations.
