Reflection: Performance Tasks Modeling Fractions Assessment - Section 2: Assessment


I did complete a performance assessment for my students with fine motor skill challenges.  These students used notebook paper for their assessment, and I also made available to them pre-cut strips of paper they could mark with the different unit fractions.  

I chose this strategy to support their different needs, and also to make sure they could complete the task and convey their thinking without being frustrated in the creation of the models.  Using the performance assessment allowed me to determine if their need for support with fine motor skills was an issue or if they needed additional help with the content of ordering fractions.
