Reflection: Quizzes The Meter: Assessing the Skill and Conversions Part 1. - Section 2: Taking the Quiz

As we transition to CCSS I can see we need to push kids to write well about seeing patterns. My students struggle with this. I have to work harder at getting kids to write more accurately. The conversions are done fairly well, complete with equations to show understanding. They were allowed to use their stair step models from their notes during this quiz. By test time, I expect them to memorize the steps and create it.
