RTI : Math Reasoning Probes for Second Grade-
This packet was created to help organize assessments for students for RTI. I often find it very difficult to meet student’s needs for RTI (Response to Intervention) when students struggled with math reasoning. This packet helps keep assessments organized with problems that were created to show the student’s mathematical growth.
Each probe, or assessment, contains four word problems. Each word problem on the probe are slightly different due to the different styles of word problems. However, although each problem on the probe is different, the style (or situation) is the same for that specific number on all the probes. For example, problem number one on all the probes is always a single digit addition, numbers written as numerals, join-result unknown problem. This makes is easy to show growth (or lack of growth) with each assessment. The four problems on each probe are:
1.) Single digit addition, numbers written as numerals, join-result unknown
2.) Single digit addition, numbers written in word form, join-result unknown
3.) Double digit subtraction (no regrouping), numbers written as numerals, join- change unknown
4.) Double digit addition (no regrouping), numbers written as numerals, join-results unknown
This packet contains one baseline probe and four additional probes. Hopefully this will make data collection for RTI much more organized!
****Please note that these probes are best suited for the beginning of the year/ first quarter. I will be making more probes that increase in difficulty to match the standards for later quarters.
