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.
* This document is flexibly aligned to the original Common Core standards because it is 50% EDITABLE.

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 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.
