For each grade level listed, teachers should be familiar with the following resources:
Standards – Grade-specific extracts of the high-quality academic standards in mathematics. These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade.
Claim Distribution – Visual representations of how content is distributed across the Smarter Balanced assessments.
Range Achievement Level Descriptors – Descriptions of student knowledge, skills, and processes as they develop across the performance levels of the state assessment
Cluster Quizzes – Paper-pencil quizzes aligned to selected clusters, conceptual categories, and the Claim Distribution document. May be modified and used to supplement the interim assessment blocks (IABs).
Progression Documents and Critical Questions – Descriptions of the cognitive development and structure of mathematics in several important areas of the standards. Use the critical questions to guide discussions as you read through the documents.
Digital Library Resources – Suggested modules and resources across a grade band to guide your exploration into understanding and using formative assessment practices.
