If your school uses the Marzano Framework or iObservations for Teacher Evaluations, this BUNDLE will save you weeks of work! The resources are perfectly align to a growth mindset, standards-based grading, and make differentiation planning easy! Inspired by Marzano's research in “The Art and Science of Teaching” these resources format every standard into four proficiency scales from 1-4 (levels of difficulty), with a learning goal statement accompanying each one. The Posters will help you to present and post the scales for students, the Assessments and quizzes will help you to objectively differentiate student groups, and the Portfolio pages will provide a quick and easy way to track student pre- and post-unit progress.
Save up to 35% by purchasing all of these Math resources at one time!

**UPDATED Feature: What does EDITABLE mean? This newest version (2107) 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.
Please re-download from your "My Purchases" page if you already own this license.
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
Editable Posters with Learning Goals and Scales
The Scaled 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 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.
Proficiency in each math standard is represented by a score of 3. A score of 4 indicates an advanced knowledge of the skill, usually above grade level. The tasks assigned to scores of 2 and 1, are either derived from sub-skills of the standard, or from the background knowledge of earlier grade levels. Often the content from earlier grade levels will be labeled with the corresponding standard for reference purposes.
Visit my blog for examples of student work, explanations, and tips on grading the assessment using the 4-point scale.
