Math Assessment Plan
Pre Assessment Method
The preinstruction assessment will be a short review quiz covering material
which has already been
covered earlier in the year. This assessment will include writing and
simplifying fractions , writing
decimals as fractions and fractions as decimals, and solving basic equations
involving fractions.
PostAssessment Method
The postinstruction assessment will be the end of the unit test. While this
will not be a repeat of the
preinstruction assessment, the basic ideas from the first assessment will be
carried over into the postinstruction
assessment. For example, students will be required to solve a problem involving
miles per
hour and traveling. To do this, students have to use knowledge gained during the
instruction to correctly
set up and solve the problem, but knowledge gained before the instruction will
be used to simplify and
correctly compute the solution . For students that perform very poorly on the
pre instruction
assessment, special care will be given to notice the difference between the
fundamental skills displayed
at the pre instruction assessment compared to the post instruction assessment.
Although all students
will be graded in the same manner, this special care will be used to better
gauge the student’s
understanding.
Other Assessment Activities
Two quizzes will serve as assessments during the instruction. The first will
cover the basic ideas of rate,
ratio, and solving proportions. The second will focus on percents and the
percent proportion. In
addition, homework will be assigned on a regular basis. The actual amount of
homework collected and
taken as a grade will be determined later depending on the actual pacing and
other circumstances while
teaching this lesson. The culminating activity will also be included in this
unit. This basic overview of this
activity is that students have to construct a scale drawing of their favorite
candy bar. In addition , the
students will then answer various questions such as how many calories would be
in the large candy bar,
how much of different ingredients would be needed for each new bar, and other
questions. Students
will also think about and answer different questions relating to food and scale
drawings. Finally, the
students will complete an activity regarding wildlife sampling. This activity
will involve students
conducting “capture and recapture” experiments with dried beans. After the data
collection, students
will answer questions and complete problems involving proportions.
