#### Ready, Set...

*5 min*

My students already know that this will be a team assessment so as class begins I assign teams by randomly drawing of popsicle sticks. I explain why a team assessment is appropriate for this unit in my assessment video and have included a resource with links to other team lessons and assessments I use. Once teams are assigned I distribute the Algebraic Arithmetic Assessment, ask if there are any questions, and let my students begin working. **(MP1, MP2)**

#### Go!

*50 min*

During most of the class my students are working on their exam while I walk around offering encouragement and redirecting as necessary. I make a point of reminding them that work counts! I strongly suggest to teams that finish early to check their work and make sure they've completely answered each problem and that their answers make sense. **(MP1, MP2)** I advise the class when there are only five minutes left so that they can wrap up their work. Because I've already been assessing my students daily for strengths and weaknesses, I grade this assessment as a collaborative effort unless there is a clear "opt out" by a student. In that case, I try to ascertain why he/she is not trying and offer the option of taking the test individually. Otherwise both students receive the same grade.
