This is a great resource for sample MEASUREMENT word problems. Sample problems, task analysis and test-taking strategies are given for each of the following:
Measure Volume Using Models Estimate Weight Using Standard Units Compare Weights of Items
Find Perimeter Determine Lapse of Time
Determine Temperature after a Change Estimate Weight
Estimate Capacity Change in Temperature Determine Lapse of Time Use Ruler to Measure
Use Ruler to Find Perimeter
Describe Numerical Relationship between Units
Describe Numerical Relationship between Units of Measure Convert Units of Measure
Convert Units of Capacity
Convert Measurements and Find Area Convert Measurements and Problem Solve
The task analysis shows what a student must know and be able to do to show quality success with the sample item. This better ensures a depth of understanding of the tested concept. All of the listed skills in a task analysis may not be required for the sample item, but they may be necessary for similar items. This is a great resource for academic vocabulary.
The given test-taking strategy is not the only possible strategy or the easiest strategy for solving the sample item. It is designed to require the student to apply the student expectations for this grade level. The strategy is also designed to require the students to show their work in a way that allows the teacher to diagnose their needs.
Reproducible word problems are provided for each sample item. The font size is appropriate for projection.
The appendix includes a document explaining the “Unit-Rate Method.” In solving situations involving groups of equal size, the unit-rate method helps students record data from the problem and identify the arithmetic concept as multiplication or division.
