Learning from Assessment: Tools for Examining Assessment through Standards. A Middle School Mathematics Professional Development Resource.
Madfes, Tania J.; Muench, Ann
This document was designed as a resource for district-level professional developers and teacher leaders who work with middle school teachers of mathematics. A bridge between standards and the classroom, it offers opportunities for teachers to examine the interrelationships between assessment, standards, and instruction in order to improve student achievement in mathematics. This document is organized into three modules: (1) Aligning Assessment to Standards; (2) Collecting Standards-Based Evidence; and (3) Planning Instruction to Support Standards. Each module contains an overview, preparation needs, a key to the transparencies and handouts for the module, a one-page summary of key points, and facilitator notes and script. Facilitator support, supplementary activities, and selected references are also included. (Contains 18 references.) (ASK)
