I use this back-to-back reflection with my middle school math class. At our school, we take monthly cumulative assessments. Students receive a % grade for the whole test, but what does that really mean for their learning?
In the first section there is space for each strand to be listed and the questions associated with that topic. The students then find their score for each topic to identify their strengths and weaknesses. This is especially helpful on cumulative tests for students to pinpoint exactly which skills need to be reviewed.
Students who fail tests often feel like there is too much to fix that there is no use trying. With this chart, students may notice that they in fact have mastered certain skills, while others need work. This gives them a plan without feeling overwhelmed.
The Mastery Levels Chart is modeled after our state assessment levels:
F - Falls Far Below
A - Approaches
M - Meets
E - Exceeds
Feel free to modify to match your state's levels.
