Framework for Transforming Your Teaching & Implementing the Common Core Standards of Mathematical Practice

The ultimate goal of teaching is to support student LEARNING!

THREE THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND AS YOU TEACH

  • What do I want my students to learn?
  • What are they learning?
  • Am I being effective?

Note: The framework below helps you naturally integrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

STUDENT CONTENT TESTS FOR THE FOLLOWING NEVADA ACADEMIC CONTENT STANDARDS/COMMON CORE DOMAINS:

Note: These student tests were developed based on examples from the Nevada Academic Content standard document, adaptation of Illustrative mathematics project and other sources.  These tests are intended to be used as a pre and post test or test items to assess student thinking to see growth.   Please administer these student content test prior to the follow up sessions. This way, we have common student work to talk about as we meet during the follow-up sessions. We can identify areas that students are able to understand and also have difficulty with.  The follow up session content focus will be based on areas that students struggle with. Our goal is to support you to deepen your understanding of content in areas that student struggle  most with and to figure out ways to support student learning. Please e-mail feedback to Terunil@unr.edu Please indicate if you find errors in these assessments or they are in need of further fine tuning.  Please do not use student names on tests. Do not use teacher names on class tests either. You can create a code to figure out how your class did.   Please administer the student content tests prior to the follow up session dates.  You can then re-administer the test after you have taught the unit. This way, you can see areas of student growth. We would appreciate it if you could score the tests using the assessment rubrics on the test. Sample answers to problem types will be posted on line as well. The sample solution is a possible way a student might solve the problem. Some may use other strategies. These student tests will also help us track student growth across the project. This will help the project team fine tune our PD Design if we get additional funding for two more years.

Note: These tests were created by Teruni Lamberg, Ed Keppelman, Peggy Lakey and Claudia Bertorlone-Smith and Linda Koyen
