Are you looking for a way to identify if students have learned some of the key skills presented in the curriculum? The Grade 1: Key Mathematical Assessment Questions packet presents 10 key assessment questions along with individual rubrics that can be used for the purpose of identifying whether students have learned key skills. There is not a assessment question for each specific expectation in the curriculum.
What is included in this packet?
This packet is aligned with the Ontario Mathematics curriculum. This packet contains 2 key assessment questions for each of the following strands:
- Number Sense and Numeration;
- Geometry and Spatial Sense;
- Patterning and Algebra;
- Data Management and Probability;
What skills do the key assessment questions assess?
The key assessment questions deal with the following skills:
Problem #1: Addition / combination numbers
Problem #2: Comparing numbers
Problem #3: Measuring the length of a pencil
Problem #4: Telling and writing time to the :00 and :30
Problem #5: Identifying two-dimensional shapes
Problem #6: Identifying three-dimensional figures
Problem #7: Identifying patterns
Problem #8: Balance models (creating equal sides)
Problem #9: Sorting objects using one attribute
Problem #10: Pictograph interpretation
What do the rubrics look like?
The rubrics presented in this packet are generally the same for each of the key assessment questions. This is to ensure consistency with the assessment. The rubric is broken down into four sections
A) Problem solving (selection and application of problem solving skills)
B) Understanding of concepts (strand specific content skills)
C) Application of knowledge (applying problem solving skills and mathematical knowledge)
D) Communication (communicating how they have solved the problem and the communication of the steps taken to solve the problem)
