Step 4: Assess Student Learning

Guiding Questions

  • Look back at what you determined as acceptable evidence in Step 2.
  • What are the most appropriate methods and activities for assessing student learning?
  • How will I align my assessment strategies with my teaching strategies?

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.  

A. Whole Class/Group Assessment

Note: Performance-based assessment tasks are under development.

Have counters and base ten materials for the student to use as needed.

B. One-on-One Assessment

C. Applied Learning

Provide opportunities for the students to use multiplication and division in a practical situation and notice whether or not the strategies transfer. For example, ask the students to estimate and then calculate the number of vans needed to transport 75 children if each van can hold 6 children. Does the student:

  • use an estimate to make the comparison?
  • interpret the remainder correctly by including one more van for the remaining three children?
  • use a personal strategy that makes sense in calculating the answer?
