Connections to Assessment

Formative Assessment

Mathematics Assessment Project - Tools for formative and summative assessment that make knowledge and reasoning visible, and help teachers to guide students in how to improve, and monitor their progress.

  • Classroom Challenges - Lessons for formative assessment, some focused on developing math concepts, others on non-routine problem solving.
  • Prototype Summative Assessments Tests - Designed to help teachers and students monitor their progress, these tests provide a model for examinations that may replace or complement current US tests.

Common Core Mathematics

Elementary

Common Core Curriculum Templates - Templates for educators to use to map out the Mathematics Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These templates list all of the strands, standard/content statements, domains, and clusters based on the 2010 CCSS. Teachers have found these templates to be useful for creating pacing guides and/or curriculum maps.

Common Core Implementation Video Series for Mathematics - To aid states as they implement the Common Core State Standards (Standards)in Mathematics, the Hunt Institute and the Council of Chief State School Officers have commissioned a series of 17 videos explaining the Standards in Mathematics in far greater depth.

The Common Core in Mathematics: Overview - John B. King, Jr., New York State Commissioner of Education, introduces instructional strategies for successfully implementing the Common Core State Standards in Math. David Coleman, Contributing Author, Common Core State Standards, parallels the three main goals of the Common Core with successful international models and frames the six "shifts" in instruction in mathematics to be examined more thoroughly in following segments.

Common Core State Standards: Implementation Tools and Resources - The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) developed this list of tools and resources to point states to promising practices and tools to support Common Core State Standards implementation. The document primarily lists resources developed by CCSSO and the lead writers of the standards and is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all resources available.

Illustrative Mathematics
Illustrative Mathematics provides guidance to states, assessment consortia, testing companies, and curriculum developers by illustrating the range and types of mathematical work that students experience in a faithful implementation of the Common Core State Standards, and by publishing other tools that support implementation of the standards.

Instructional Alignment Chart Protocols - The Instructional Alignment Chart (IAC) from the Rhode Island Department of Education is one of the tools that can be used by educators to take a more focused look at the standards and gain insight into appropriate levels of instruction. It will aid in providing a forum for an ongoing collaborative study of the standards.

The Mathematics Common Core Toolbox - A resource site designed to support districts and schools working to meet the challenge and the opportunity of the CCSS. Find tools and instructional materials to help better understand and to implement the CCSS in Mathematics.

The site is broken into the following three sections:

  • Standards for Mathematical Practice - This section features Key Visualizations (animations) and Formative Assessment tools and tasks.
  • Standards for Mathematical Content - This secton features Key Visualizations (animations) that support the CCSS content standards.
  • Resources for Implementation - This section features Preparation for Implementation, Studying the Standards, and Sample Scope and Sequence.

Math Flip Books - Kansas Association of Teachers of mathematics created flip books that unpacked the standards and made links between the mathemetical practices and the content of the Common Core Standards. They include instructional strategies and examples for each standard at each grade level.

The New Math Common Core - This is an introduction to the new common core for math. Produced by Anthony Graham for Madison City Schools.
