Using Performance Assessment to Improve Math Learning | FairTest Nearly 30 California districts are using a set of common performance tasks to guide professional development and improve teaching and learning in mathematics. The tasks focus on student understanding and the ability to transfer knowledge to new tasks. The districts undertook this effort in part to counter the harmful effects of the state’s standardized tests, which are not good measures of mathematical reasoning. The success of the collaborative shows the value and feasibility of performance assessments. The Silicon Valley Mathematics Assessment Collaborative (MAC) first mapped out the five core ideas on which it would focus across the grade levels. Teachers use the scored tests in their classes to help students develop deeper understanding. The scoring sessions provide important learning opportunities for math teachers.

ccss_progression_nf_35_2013_09_19 Performance-Based Assessments in Mathematics - The Grapevine Network Ten schools in our Network were involved in the Elementary School Performance-Based Assessment Pilot in Mathematics during the 2010-2011 school year with the Center for Assessment and Exemplars, Inc. Participants constructed resources centered on performance assessments and tasks aligned to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics during this year-long pilot. Below you will find both general and grade-specific resources which can be used by all, regardless of whether you participated in the pilot. If your school is new to this work and you would like to try the tasks out with your students please read the Introduction to Standards-Based Assessment and Instruction, attached below. For additional information and support, including the use of rubrics for assessment or to set up a visit to observe use of the performance-based tasks in a pilot school contact the Grapevine Team members listed below. Each task comes with a Preliminary Planning Sheet containing the following:

K-5 CCGPS Mathematics Overview The K-5 standards are organized using domains, overarching ideas that connect topics across the grades, clusters that illustrate progression of increasing complexity from grade to grade and standards which define what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The K-5 standards are organized in the following domains: counting and cardinality; operations and algebraic thinking; number and operations in base ten; number and operations – fractions; measurement and data; and geometry. The focus in the K-5 standards is comparable to that seen in high-performing countries.
