The intentions of our benchmark assessments and the corresponding progress monitoring tools are to monitor the progress of students with relation to Common Core aligned computational fluency, identify an individual’s responsiveness to instruction and to identify if students are meeting mastery of the Common Core fluency by the end of the year.
Last year, we implemented Common Core aligned fluency probes. We did so, as part of progress monitoring of computations in Mathematics. We modeled our practices around the work of various researchers that established Curriculum Based Measures (CBM).
The Common Core Standards are new, and the fluency expectations are untested with relation to alignments to research based norms in fluency and CBM. Our approach is centered on children and always has all facets of student success in mind. To that end, our initial work relating to Common Core fluency is promising.
