I use this test as a pre and post test. I give it to the students before I start the unit, to help me with my small groups and direct instruction. I use the recording sheet to record my pre and post test scores for each student. If a student does not understand the questions, I put a circle in the recording box. If they do understand, I put a check mark in the box. Those students who have not mastered a common core benchmark, I will reteach again at a later time.
The Trimester Test involves both addition and subtraction. The first Trimester Test has addition and subtraction within 100 with some simple regrouping that can be solved using a 100’s chart or counting up/down. The second Trimester test had addition and subtraction within 1,000 without regrouping. The third Trimester Test has addition and subtraction within 1,000 with regrouping.
I teach my students multiple ways to solve addition and subtraction with regrouping. I teach the standard vertical regrouping method as a strategy, not the only way to solve a regrouping problem.
I always place the Common Core standards at the top of each of my assessments. I grade each standard separately and place the score on the line next to the standard.
My students track their progress in their Leadership Data Notebooks. They set goals periodically throughout the school year in each academic subject. Once they have mastered their goal, they write a new goal.
Tests And Other Documents
Some resources are found as either Microsoft Word Documents and/or PDF’s. Due to the complexity of the assessment, not everything can be created on Power Point. Please download all resources to see which documents you would like to use.
