From coast to coast, states have assessments that students must perform to. Whether it be the state reading and math exams in New York, MCAS in Massachusetts, the Georgia State Assessments, FCAT in Florida, CST in California, or the OAKS in Oregon. At Gateway to 21, we view state assessments as autopsy style assessments. That is, they constitute one shot, a hit or miss event, either the student performs well or they do not. In short, it is an ending or a terminus. We believe assessments should guide instruction and help educators in creating learning experiences to develop deeper student understanding.
The Math Interim Assessment has a total of 30 questions consisting of multiple choice, short and extended response. The questions are all aligned to the Common Core Standards. Each assessment has an answer key that identifies the correct response, Common Core Standard, and cognitive domain level as identified by Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) and a generic grading rubric for the short and extended response questions. Our Interim Assessment is not the terminus, rather a beginning!
Coming Soon! We will be posting several additional parallel Math Interim Assessments to help you track growth.
