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 CheckIn.
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.
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 openresponse 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.
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.
