Math Assessment Information


    Assessing Content Standards and Practice Standards


    Everyday Mathematics 4 has two different types of assessments.

    The first type of assessment is completed daily and is called an Assessment Check-In.

    The questions are based on their classwork for the day (usually from a journal page or game).

    The students are assessed based on whether or not

    they are meeting our goal for the day.

    Progress Checks

    The second type of assessment is a two day assessment

    found at the end of each unit and is called a Progress Check.

    On the first day of the assessment, students will complete a written assessment

    to demonstrate their progress on the common core state standards covered in the unit.


    The second day of the assessment varies with each unit.

    Odd numbered units have an open-response assessment to complete.

    Even numbered units have a cumulative assessment

    that reflects mastery expectations to that point in the program.

    A review sheet will be sent home a few days prior to the assessment.


       Progress Checks

    Everyday Math is a spiral curriculum which means your child will have several opportunities

    throughout the unit and year to practice each skill.

    We will complete a self assessment in class before each unit's Progress Check.

    This will come home before the Progress Check and serve as a review.



    During class, we use a lot of games to review and practice

    basic facts as well as different math skills.

    I will try to send home as many of these games as possible.

    Aside from completing homework each night, these games are an excellent 

    way to review our math skills.
