Fractions Assessment

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Evidence- In math, the students were studying fractions. I realized that students had varying knowledge of fractions. I wanted to determine what students knew very well and what concepts needed to be discussed in further detail. I have attached two documents. The one document is the actual assessment I gave-pre-assessment and post-assessment. The second document is how I analyzed the data after the students completed a pre-assessment and post-assessment.

Justification-I chose this example because I gave the pre-assessment on fractions and I realized the students were not aware or strong with fourths and thirds. I then adjusted my instruction accordingly. I then gave a post assessment at the end of the fractions unit and the students knowledge improved remarkably. This is an example of a formal assessment I conducted systematically to determine student understanding. I then decided to have a day focused on thirds and a day focused on fourths to better student understanding. I displayed some of these assessments in the hallway and I sent the rest home to parents to show what the students were learning and how they improved.
