Fractions 1: Comparing Fractions and Decimals Assessment - Section 2: The Test

To see students progress from not understanding comparisons or equivalent fractions to achievement is a wonderful thing! They were able to demonstrate their understanding using the models very well. This Educreations Video shows a few examples of their tests.

# Fractions 1: Comparing Fractions and Decimals Assessment

Lesson 12 of 12

## Objective: SWBAT show they know how to compare fractions and decimals and prove their work using drawings, < > = signs, and writing responses.

## Big Idea: Students take an assessment to prove they can compare fractions and decimals and prove their work using drawings and symbols.

#### Getting our minds set

*10 min*

To get our brains all set for our test, we got our iPads out and logged onto Oh No Fractions! for 5 minutes. I wanted them to remember how fractional models help us compare fractions and have a chance to play with the manipulative bars on this app. I stopped after about 5 minutes to ask if they had any questions about comparing fractions using bar models or number lines.

I drew number lines and bars on the board and quickly reviewed how we use them to compare fractions. I also reviewed the greater than and less than signs. We reviewed that good written math answers always have an example within the explanation or possibly drawings to refer to. I asked them what they needed to remember to efficiently solve any word problems on the test.

After no one asked any questions, I believed it was time to begin!

#### The Test

Assessment for Fractions & Decimals

This test will show if students understand equivalency involving fractions and decimals. It assesses how well they can compare fractions and decimals and if they can write explanations of their understanding. I passed out the test. I read the goals at the top of the page and the directions to them asking if there were any questions about the test. They began and it took about 45 minutes for everyone to complete it.
