Patterning Test /Tasks
The first task asks the children to use a certain number of manipulatives to make a very complex, or simple pattern, depending on their level of skill and understanding. It allows for differentiation. So if a child is only able to use some of the manipulatives and makes a simple AB pattern, but another uses all of them to make a complex pattern, this can be indicated on the rubric or feedback checklist to parents. The students will also have to explain how they know what makes a pattern.
There is also another task where students create a variety of patterns, using various attributes. You will be able to determine if they can create a variety of patterns and understand attributes.
There are two rubrics, one with levels and one without.
I will leave the document as a Word Document so that you can revise according to your needs.
