Common Core Aligned Assessments Bank Mathematics Grade 1
This Assessment Bank was designed to save teachers time in developing assessments to use in assessing student performance in and learning of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
The Assessment Bank contains at least two assessment aligned to each of the Mathematics CCSS (most standards have several more aligned assessments). The standards in the Assessment Banks are deconstructed into two or more objectives for teaching and learning. The assessments are authentic and curriculum-based and were designed to provide you with relevant student performance data. These assessments were originally designed to be used in conjunction with my Common Core Standards Aligned IEP Goal and Objective Bank, but can be used by any teacher responsible for teaching and assessing the Common Core State Standards.
This particular assessment bank covers the CCSS in the area of Mathematics at the First Grade level and contains well over 100 assessments directly aligned to the mathematics standards for Grade 1. The Assessment Bank is organized into four sections: Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Numbers and Operations in Base Ten, Measurement and Data, and Geometry, which correspond to the four subdomains of the Common Core Mathematics Content Standards for Grade 1. Most assessments administered at the first grade level are conducted in one-on-one assessment situations with the teacher or other adult providing oral directions as well as reading most all print material orally to the student. These practices are reflected in the Grade 1 level of the Mathematics Assessment Bank.
Teacher directions are provided for each assessment in the Assessment Bank. What the teacher says to the student is written in bold, italics: I want you to count for me. Start at 1 and count to 20. What the teacher does is written in regular type font. Any directions of particular note are given in parenthesis and italics:
Give the student the following direction:
I want you to count for me. Start at 1 and count to 20. Underline the numbers in column 3 the student says correctly in order. Cross out the numbers student omits or otherwise says incorrectly. Write accuracy in last column.
Due to the nature of some assessments and the frequency of administration, I have included multiple forms for most assessments, (Form A, Form B, etc.). For these assessments, teachers can alternate use of the different forms to reduce the possibility that students may learn the responses to the assessments simply by engaging in the assessment repeatedly.
All the mathematics assessments have an accompanying Assessment Record for teachers to use to document student performance and progress in mastering the standard or objective across trials and over time. Teachers choosing to use these Assessment Records simply transfer the assessment data from the actual teacher or student assessment form to the Assessment Record Form. These Assessment Record forms would be ideal to use to monitor student performance over time and to report student progress to parents during parent conferences or to team members during Individual Education Program (IEP) team meetings.
Also included at the end of the Assessment Banks are three CCSS Class Performance Records , organized by subdomain: Counting and Cardinality, Operations and Algebraic Thinking/ Numbers and Operations in Base Ten, and Measurement and Data/Geometry. These Class Performance Records can be used to determine the overall performance toward the Mathematics Common Core Standards for an entire class. Teachers using these forms can easily and quickly see the overall level of performance for all students in one class related to individual standards to assist in planning and making overall instructional decisions.
If you are a first teacher responsible for teaching and assessing the Common Core Standards in the area of Mathematics, then this Assessment Bank is one tool you do NOT want to be without.
If you are a Special Education Teacher responsible for providing specially designed instruction in the area of mathematics to first grade students aligned to the Common Core, then this Assessment Bank is for you. ASSESSMENTS ALIGN DIRECTLY WITH THE GOALS/OBJECTIVES IN MY COMMON CORE ALIGNED IEP GOAL AND OBJECTIVE BANK – PRIMARY LEVEL, GRADE 1 MATHEMATICS STANDARDS.

I have plans are to expand the Assessment Banks to subject areas of Language Arts (writing, speaking and listening, and language) and grades through Grade 5 in the near future.
