## Reflection: Classroom Setup Assessment: Addition - Section 2: Test

In this Educreations clip, you can see the growth and samples of students in my classroom. I attribute to the adherence to high level and rigorous lessons that Common Core wants from us. Insisting that they take apart word problems, use variables and solve by proving concepts has been really important for them to master this very straightforward assessment.

The placement of students during the test worked well. They were comfortable and worked quietly and diligently on their test. Students who scored 0's in the pretest, who I expected not to do well , surprised me. I am so happy about that. I had to support a few of my lower end language students with some prodding. I am hoping as time progresses, I can completely stop that. It is important for them to achieve independence. Since this is the first official test, I allowed myself to support them a little bit to help their confidence.

Incredible Growth is Proven! Conceptual teaching is to blame!
