Sample Assessment Tasks

In addition to ongoing assessment throughout the lessons, consider the following sample activities to evaluate the students' learning at key milestones. Suggestions are given for assessing all students as a class or in groups, individual students in need of further evaluation, and individual or groups of students in a variety of contexts.

C. Applied Learning

Provide opportunities for the students to use their mental strategies for multiplication and division facts in a practical situation and notice whether or not the mental strategies transfer. For example, ask the student how many minutes he or she reads in a week if he or she reads for 9 minutes a day. Have the student explain how he or she finds the answer. Does the student:

  • respond to the question without hesitation, showing that he or she is using a mental strategy efficiently?
  • explain clearly his or her thinking in finding the product of 7 and 9?
  • use another mental strategy for find the product of 7 and 9 when prompted to do so?
