Mathematics. Competency-Based Education Assessment Series.
Kasten, Margaret; Meiring, Steve; Mikesell, Anne
The model competency-based education assessments for mathematics have been developed in cooperation with the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics (OCTM) task force for implementing National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards for Grades 1 through 8. Three types of assessment for each grade are presented. The first type of model competency test has a largely traditional design. The second type of model competency based assessment is based on a checklist format to go beyond multiple choice assessment. Finally, the third type of model competency test includes authentic-type situations and is based on portfolio assessment. The assessment is done as an ongoing part of instruction. The instructional activity details how students apply mathematical skills, understanding, and thinking. Directions for the test, necessary materials, and detailed rubrics are provided. (ASK)
