These benchmark assessments are designed to measure students' mastery of the CCS Operations and Algebraic Thinking standards at the beginning, middle, and end of year. The assessments are all equal levels of difficulty, so growth can be measured easily.
There are THREE assessments. Each assessment is 4 pages long and measures the 3.OA (multiplication and division) and 3.MD (area) standards. Students are asked to interpret and create equations, models, and story problems relating to multiplication and division. Answer keys are included for all three assessments.
