7 Types of Informal Math Assessment – cont. Math Scope and Sequence Analysis – guide to determine the skills covered (scope) and the order of presentation (sequence) in a curriculum Math Scope and Sequence Analysis – guide to determine the skills covered (scope) and the order of presentation (sequence) in a curriculum Math Inventory – determines skills and concepts that are mastered, emerging, or undeveloped Math Inventory – determines skills and concepts that are mastered, emerging, or undeveloped Math Journal Writing – evaluates ability to reflect on and record skills and concepts. Math Journal Writing – evaluates ability to reflect on and record skills and concepts. Performance-based Assessment – apply knowledge in real-life situations Performance-based Assessment – apply knowledge in real-life situations
