Students Use Graphic Organizers to Improve Mathematical Problem-Solving Communications | Math for Elementary and Middle Grades | Scoop.it
"Let me give you a math story problem." This sentence often strikes fear in many middle grades students as well as some teachers. As international comparisons, national commissions, and state assessment results confirm, students have difficulty solving mathematical applications problems (Lester, 2007; U. S. Department of Education Institute of Educational Science, 2007; TIMMS, 2003; McREL, 2002; National Research Council, 2002; Illinois State Board of Education, 1997).

Teachers "being asked to implement these tough new standards without being given better materials."

Teachers "being asked to implement these tough new standards without being given better materials." | Math for Elementary and Middle Grades | Scoop.it

"the standards are higher than many of the state standards they're replacing. And, as we reported earlier, new standards as rigorous as the Core require lots of other changes, too — to textbooks, lesson plans, homework assignments. You name it.

Right now, many teachers are in a bind. They're being asked to implement these tough new standards without being given better materials."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 12, 2014 11:50 PM

The core of the argument is sound and draws on seminal thinking about student assessment. The addition that might be made is that thinking was based on considerably more teacher autonomy and local community involvement in their schools. I think the two go hand-in-hand. We need teachers to be teaching students and that includes effective assessment which can be communicated to students and their parents.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 13, 2014 9:57 AM

I think one of the keys is this paragraph: "Teaching and learning with an eye toward mastery of a defined list of competencies circumvents many of the pitfalls that points-based grading causes. If mastery of a specific concept or skill is the stated goal for everyone, students are free to be more creative in their thinking. They are encouraged to challenge themselves in pursuit of that mastery."


Let's be honest: there is a lot of subjectivity in a lot of grading. Perhaps Common Core, for all of its flaws, will challenge us to think differently about how we assess. Not just how we grade student work, but how we make decisions about how students can demonstrate what they know and can do.

iPamba's curator insight, March 13, 2014 10:53 AM

More important than the grading system is whether or not, throughout the process of learning, communication strategies and tools are used, including meaningful feedback to learners,  to enable them to recognize their challenges as well as assess their progress and achievement.

Key Points on Formative Assessment:


  • With the common standards, "classrooms will look different," said Heritage. "We'll need a lot more talking, more focus, more discourse, more depth."
  • "For many teachers, formative assessment has traditionally consisted of quick checks for understanding, Friday quizzes, or exit slips as students head out the door. But as the majority of teachers around the country transition to the Common Core State Standards—which are designed to emphasize complexity, critical thinking, and skills like collaboration and reasoning—some experts say more teachers need to deepen their assessment practices."
  • "If you're asking students to think critically, you have to have formative-assessment practices that tap into that critical thinking," - Nancy Frey
  • "We need to know if [students are] grappling with complex ideas," said Heritage, who mentored Lozano and Cadenas. "Where are they? Is the idea beginning to consolidate? What do I need to do to go deeper and really help them get this?"
  • All of that may be tough to measure with quick-answer questions or exit slips. Instead, to get a full picture of student understanding, teachers need to ask open-ended questions and push students to explore ideas aloud.
  • Frey of San Diego State University tells teachers that, when listening closely to students, "The question you have to ask yourself is not whether the answer is correct or incorrect, but rather what is it likely that that student knows and doesn't know in this moment in time that would lead him to that response?" "It takes a different kind of listening," Frey said, and rather than an innate talent, it is "a habit to be developed."
  • Rather than asking multiple-choice questions or scanning quickly for right and wrong, teachers will need to be attuned to what students are saying during those discussion and debate sessions.
  • "full-scale adoption of new assessment techniques will not happen overnight. "I see this as being a three-year process, even though we only have a year before PARCC starts."
