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!

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.
Help your students, families, and administrators SEE what they already know, and where the standard is leading them!
This format is designed to scaffold skill mastery, so the same pages can be used as a pre-assessment and a post-assessment. This is recommended! The pre-assessment will let you know what skills your students have to begin instruction and differentiation. Allowing students to continue where they left off as a post-assessment will help them feel rewarded for what they already know and see their progress in a concrete way!
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.
