Would you like to make sure that your Distance Learning assignments are a success? Help students by allowing them to REVIEW concepts during their independent work! These Assessment work sheets walk students through 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 problems they should master this year. “Level” 4 includes optional enrichment tasks for your advanced thinkers. Make Math easier for students and parents with Leveled Assessment practice tasks!

*This product can now be assigned online with TpT's DIGITAL OVERLAY. See Preview Video.

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 with concrete problems to prove mastery at every level. These Leveled Assessments create a clear goal for you and your students. They perfectly align to a growth mindset, standards based grading, and make differentiation planning easy! These assessments are fully aligned to Common Core and most states' standards. 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 NEW 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.

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.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., 𝘹-axis and 𝘹-coordinate, 𝘺-axis and 𝘺-coordinate).
Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?
