These fifth grade math assessments are great pre- and post-assessments to truly assess your students on the rigor of the Common Core Math Standards. They are organized, easy to implement, and have teaching notes that break the standards down into easy-to-understand language.


**A digital version is also included for use with Google Classroom.**

With the digital version, you have the option to go 100% paperless.


The Teaching Notes:

·Every individual standard comes with teaching notes that break the standard down into three levels of learning/understanding.

·The three levels of learning/understanding include: what students should know/be able to do at the conceptual level, procedural level, and representational level.

These teaching notes not only make teaching the standards much easier, but they also help teachers understand where their students need to be in order to show mastery of the standard by test time.

The Assessments:

·There are 10 higher level assessment questions for EVERY SINGLE standard under Number & Operations in Base Ten, Number & Operation- Fractions, Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Measurement and Data, and Geometry.

·Most assessment questions are written response and higher-order thinking questions that require students to justify their answers and write to explain their thinking.

·Answer keys come with student example responses to help teachers check students’ work.

The Assessment Cover Pages:

·Included are pages of blank "I can" statements for student documentation (to be used with my Student Data Tracking Binder).

·The cover pages also include a table to document assessment dates and scores.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
