Assessing what students
know and are able to do is an integral part of the CPMP curriculum
and instructional model.
Initially, as students
pursue the investigations that comprise the curriculum, the teacher is
able to informally assess student performance in terms of process, content,
and disposition. (Sample Lesson) Feedback
provided to students by teachers strengthens students' knowledge.
At the end of each
investigation, the Summarize
the Mathematics and
class discussion provide an opportunity for the teacher to assess the
levels of understanding that the various groups of students have reached
as they share and summarize their findings. Student notes, sometimes
called Math Toolkits, are developed following Summarize the Mathematics
discussions. See Parent
Resources: Using the Math Toolkit.
Your Understanding problem situations and tasks in the On
Your Own (OYO) sets
provide further opportunities to assess the level of understanding of
each individual student.
CPMP also provides
an assessment package that contains:
- end-of-lesson quizzes
- end-of-unit assessments
- in-class test
- take-home assessment tasks
- extended projects
- assessment tasks for semester and final exams
The resources in ConnectED contain two forms for each lesson quiz and unit test. In eAssessment on ConnectED, teachers can customize quizzes and tests. More information
