In the Thick of Things Kindergarten students are measuring and comparing. At the end of the unit, how will teachers know what students understand? Compare numbers. 6. Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies. 1 7. Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals. 1 Include groups with up to ten objects.
How Is This Assessed? More/Less Trains (#3)(#3) As you watch, consider - what does the student know about more/less - how does he determine how many more/less
How would students in your kindergarten classes do on this assessment?
District Data Of the 400 kindergarten students assessed on More/Less Trains so far… 85% can NOT use one train to determine another 89% can NOT tell how many more is this an issue?
L INKING ASSESSMENT TO INSTRUCTION We have assessed now what?
Supporting Teachers / Supporting Students At your table... 1. Engage in the lesson/activity with a partner (that means DO IT)
Supporting Teachers / Supporting Students At your table, engage again, and... 2. Be prepared to share with the entire group... A. Briefly explain the activity/lesson B. Identify 2-3 things teachers need to ask/observe to ensure students understand what the CCSS requires C. Relate the activity/lesson to the assessment
