Fun with Numbers 0-20 and Beyond Assessment
Lesson 21 of 21
Objective: Students will be able to demonstrate their ability to work with numbers 0-20 and greater.
For this assessment, you will need a copy of the Fun with Number Assessment, included as a PDF. I typically try to use individual assessments whenever possible, but for this unit, I only did a group assessment. I just did not have enough time or assistance in my classroom to assess the many elements that were covered during this unit. The only thing I assessed individually for the every student was rote counting to 100.
I have the students take their "testing positions" in the classroom. They each have an assigned assessment spot that keeps them from looking at their neighbor's paper. I read each question aloud for the students and circulate around the room while the students are working (see video). I take notes on which students may need to be pulled and given a quick one-on-one assessment based on their answers. Upon completion of the test, the students turn them in. I quickly check to make sure that all questions have been answered.
After the students complete the assessment, I use the Fun with Numbers Assessment Summary Sheet to summarize the data I gathered from the tests. This sheet gives me a quick snapshot of who needs reteaching and allows me to organize my math differentiated groups to meet the needs of my students.
