Reflection: Unit Exams Fraction Assessment - Section 2: Assessment

Based on the student scores for the test, they did very well as a class.  The item they struggled with was ordering fractions on a number line, and this is an area that I will be reteaching.  Even though we had spent many lessons on ordering fractions, there are still students struggling with this concept.

During the reteaching and reviewing of this particular standard, I decided to group the students that struggled with students that were successful with this task together.  This grouping structure allows a student to be a teacher, and another student to ask questions of a peer, and so they have the opportunity to teach and learn from each other.  They continued to use their fraction strips and pieces to work on this task.  This allowed me to circulate through the class and the students to answer specific questions and help foster the mathematical conversations about fractions.

Big Idea: This is a summative assessment based on my fraction unit. This assessment will determine if I need to reteach any concepts, and guide and inform future fraction standards and concepts.
