Sample Math Outcome Questions: An Assessment Resource for Teachers
Rating

The resource Sample Math Outcome Questions: An Assessment Resource for Teachers:

GRADES 1 to 9 NOW AVAILABLE.

*provides possible questions, sample responses and rubrics for classroom instruction and assessment is not mandatory.
*was created to support the teaching and learning of mathematics. It can be adapted by teachers to meet the individual needs of their students.
*can be used before, during and/or after classroom instruction as formative or summative assessment(s).
*is designed to elicit responses that inform teachers’ understanding of the skills and concepts that students need to know, understand and are able to do.

This resource primarily assesses students using written response. Indicators that include terms such as research or collect data (for example) are ideally assessed by means other than a written response. Subsequently, teachers must keep in mind that using this resource provides only one of many forms of evidence that teachers collect to report on student achievement of the outcome.

Each resource includes the outcome, indicators, sample assessment and answer key.
