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 scaffolding 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. 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.

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.This particular assessment was designed in cooperation with a teacher from Florida. (as of 2017).

*The EDITABLE pdf is still accessible when you download it. Any pages you revise will need to be saved and uploaded into your digital classroom. Just take a screen shot and upload as in image into your digital classroom.

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

**UPDATED Feature: What does EDITABLE mean? This newest version (2017) offers COMPLETELY EDITABLE TEXT for levels 3 and 4. This includes the Learning Goal statements AND the test problems on every Assessment page for levels 3 and 4. You can revise them to match the EDITABLE Posters with Marzano Learning Goals and Scales. (See link to grade-level Posters below.) Whether your district requires specific phrasing for each scale, or your State standards are slightly modified from the original Common Core language, you will be able to adjust the goal statements and test questions for levels 3 and 4 of the Assessment. The content for Levels 1 and 2 will remain the same to ensure an accurate progression of skills and copyright. Visit this blog post for examples and directions. EDITABLE MATH ASSESSMENTS

Standards

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.
