Reflection: Performance Tasks Introducing Ratios - Stations - Section 2: Stations


During the independent station, the students worked on a problem called "Games at Recess".  I chose to have them work on this independently and collect it as part of a formal assessment.  The problem reflected what we were learning in class.  I graded the students in the following way:

Novice:  Beginner.   These students weren't able to make any connections to the problems.  (See student work (N)

Apprentice:  These students got a problem correct and were able to see the connections to their learning by saying... For every ______  there are _______. See student work (A)

Practitioner:  These students were able to manage all of the problems, however, they did not see that the ratio could be broken down or put in simplest form. See student work (P)

Expert:  These students got all problems correct, used the appropriate ratio language, and wrote their solutions in simplest form.  See student work (E)


Most students were able to manage the problems for this assessment.  The students that typically got a rating of novice are the ones in my class that struggle on a regular basis.  I will pull these students for re-teaching and allow them to re-do this assessment.
