Full course description
What makes an assessment item or task aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM)? What are the components of a rigorous assessment task? To answer these questions, in this module you will analyze various assessment tasks through three lenses: assessment of conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application. You will then learn how to assess the strength of given mathematics tasks, using alignment and rigor as benchmarks. During this process, you will work to identify potential student misconceptions and develop strategies to effectively preempt and address these misconceptions in your instruction. By the end of this module, you will be able to clearly articulate what an assessment task is measuring and how it meets criteria for rigor, identify and plan for potential misconceptions related to a given task, and reflect on student work on assessment tasks.
