In order to improve my instructional practices, I analyzed instructional data from district math diagnostic and proficiency assessments. The most recent assessment assessed student’s abilities to count, add and subtract, and their understanding of place value. My students scored below not only the other first grade students at the school, but also all first grade students in the district. 81.6% of my students could count, read, and write numbers to 120. This was an improvement from their diagnostic assessment. However, only 66.7% could relate counting to addition and subtraction, and only 45% demonstrated understanding of place value in two digit numbers.
In order to assess pupil’s achievements the teacher will take the main lead in doing so and the learning support practitioner will take guidance from the teacher’s assessments in order to support the pupil’s progress. In order to have a clear vision of the students ability and how they are progressing, the class teacher will monitor and assess students achievements, conduct reports of the achievements found for the department; other staff including year learning co-ordinators; and for the parents, they will also have meetings to share examples of pupil’s progress and discuss why they
2. A month after the classroom teacher completed the review unit for multiplication, we began long division. One student was having a very difficult time with long division. The student hadn't quite mastered their multiplication facts, thus, making the long division unit difficult. I printed out a multiplication chart which listed the multiplication tables from 0-12. The student completed the long division unit with confidence using the chart. Additionally, I created and located
Mr. McClean, our network’s Director of Student Information Systems, provided key information about Miriam’s calculated grade. When we manually calculated her score with assigned weights to Classwork (50%), Homework (10%), Quizzes (25%), and Tests (15%) and without dropping her lowest score, her grade was a 63%. The formula that we used was:
I will walk around the classroom taking notes about each students’ progress, while they work independently and during guided practice. On students desk there will also be colored cards to explain where each student believes they are. A green card will explain that the student understands it, a yellow card means they understand some of it, and red means they do not understand how to complete the work. Data will be kept on a chart with every students’ name. This assessment will show me where additional accommodations may need to be made; therefore, meeting the needs of students with exceptionalities. If I notice a student not being able to understand how to solve the problems, accommodations can be set to help students understand what they are working
Based on data from student work samples, benchmark assessments, classroom tests and quizzes, John is able to solve basic multiplication facts with 100% accuracy. He can solve basic division facts with 92% accuracy. John can subtract numbers to the hundred thousands place with regrouping and across zeros with 90% accuracy. He can solve 2 digit by 1 digit multiplication problems with 85% accuracy, 3 digit by 1 digit multiplication problems with 95% accuracy and 4 digit by 1 digit multiplication problems with 90% accuracy. He can solve 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication problems with 85% accuracy. He can solve 3 digit by 1-digit division problems with 83% accuracy. He can identify the correct operation used to solve a word problem with 82% accuracy.
[As a result of the step by step direction in the reengagement lesson, I want students to be able fully grasp the concept of addition; and how the knowledge of addition can be used to provide answers to expressions that require the decomposition of numbers totaling 8, 9, 10. The state standard that I am addressing in this reengagement lesson is 1.OA.1 Common Core State standards; use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together,
This October 2017, practicum observation at Sharpsville Elementary consisted of a third grade Math Assessment interview and observation. The third grade teacher works on formative and summative assessment in the math class. The teacher uses different ways to assess students in the classroom. In most cases, whether the child is above level or at the level where the child should be she has many options and strategies on how to solve mathematical problems as a whole-group or individually. This reflection will discuss the formative assessment, summative assessment, how students respond to the instruction, and a student interview observation..
Study 1: 44 students were screened using the AIMSWeb computation probe as well as teacher recommendations to come up with the 9 students used in the study. Those 9 students received the TEMI-AC baseline probe to determine baseline data. The participants then moved on to receive intervention. Numerical order, quantity comparison, addition and subtraction facts, place values, and multidigit addition and subtraction were all taught during intervention. 30% of the sessions were observed to ensure that the interventionist was following the correct procedures. The TEMI-AC was used to collect maintenance data 5, 10, and 15 days after the intervention was complete, and the AIMSWeb CBM was used to collect follow up data monthly after the intervention for 5 months. Social validity questionnaires were administered to participants following the study.
To make sure that people with learning difficulties are able to live in their flats independently and not go through any abuse, there are various strategies to help them such as:
The lack of adopted curriculum also means that most, if not all, teachers are supplementing both materials and instructional routines. These students need to pass the state-mandated Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) which requires completion of a problem-solving performance task. Students need to know which operation(s) to use (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division) and how to apply them appropriately. This problem has
This story has to begin in my middle school years. At this age, I was already being tested annually amongst my peers. My parents had already received grades from the prior year letting them know that I was excelling in math and science. This year was different, this year they kept emphasizing on how it counts. And how it did. The grade I had received on these standardized tests statewide were enough to push me to the next level.
