This document includes a level of understanding rating scale based on Marzano's rating scale. Students use the rating scale as a self-evaluation tool throughout a given unit. It uses the life cycle of a caterpillar to explain the levels in primary terms.
1 - egg (I do not get it and help)
2 - caterpillar (I kind of get it, but I make mistakes and need more practice.)
3 - chrysalis (I get it and I can do it on my own!)
4 - butterfly ( I am an expert and can help a friend!)
Also included is a document to be used in student data folders. Throughout the numbers and operations unit, students rate and date their level of understanding (1-4). The numbers and operations chart is broken down into I can statements such as I can add within 20 and I can choose an operation to solve a word problem. After each assessment, students record their score.
