Overview & Purpose
Assess your student’s or child’s ability to interpret measurement data displayed on a line plot with this quick two-question exit slip.
ON GRADE LEVEL: Grades 2-3
ENRICHMENT: Grades K-1
RETEACH: Grades 4-5
2.MD.4.9 ~ Generate measurement data by measurement data by measuring data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit.
3.MD.2.4 ~ Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units— whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
The student or child can interpret measurement data displayed on a line plot.
No text needed, however, this lesson goes along with the Go Math! Planning Guide ~ Getting Ready for Grade 3, Lesson 17.
Materials Needed ~ Everything is provided for you:
Exit Slip (make the copies you need)
Student Work Space Sheet
Student Evidence of Learning/Verification ~ Check your student’s or child’s understanding by the performance on the exit slip.
1. Teach or show your child how to interpret measurement data displayed on a line plot.
e.g., Each X on the line plot stands for one object in inches. How many total objects are included on the line plot (How many total X’s are there?)
2. Have your student or child complete the exit slip.
3. Assess how well he or she did using the answer key (provided).
Common Error: If there are any missed questions your student or child may not understand how to how to use a line plot to solve problems.
Reteach: Circle the key words in the question (e.g. “total objects”) and count each X on the line plot one at a time by touching each one with your finger, counting aloud as you do.
