This pack contains 7 standards based math assessments as well as "I Can..." statements to use during the first semester of the school year.
A short cycle assessment is an assessment given prior to (pre-test) and after (post-test) teaching a unit of lessons in a specific subject area. I have designed these assessments to go with the Common Core standards as well as our math program (My Math), but you can make them work with any standards-based math program.
The seven units (8 total assessments) are:
1. Place Value
2. Multiply Whole Numbers
3. Divide by a One-Digit Divisor
4. Divide by a Two-Digit Divisor
5. Add and Subtract Decimals
6. Multiply and Divide Decimals (2 parts)
7. Expressions and Patterns
There are a variety of questions on each assessment as well as an answer key. I post the “I can…” statements in the classroom while we are working through the unit. Each unit ranges from 2-4 weeks in length. We track our data in individual data notebooks (find the data pack for FREE in my TpT store).
I organize these sheets in a 3 inch three-ring binder with each page in a clear sheet protector so they are easy to access and display.
I will be creating a set of these 5th grade math assessments for Second Semester, too! Stay tuned!
