Assessments

Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) provides reliable and timely data on the mathematics and science achievement of U.S. 4th- and 8th-grade students compared to that of students in other countries.

All Grade 4 mathematics items released from 1995 and 2003 and a guide to the content and layout of the files.

All Grade 8 mathematics items released from 1999 and 2003 and a guide to the content and layout of the files:

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas.

Nationally representative samples of 209,000 fourth-graders and 175,200 eighth-graders participated in the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in mathematics. At each grade, students responded to questions designed to measure what they know and can do across five mathematics content areas: number properties and operations; measurement; geometry; data analysis, statistics, and probability; and algebra. See sample questions for grades 4, 8 and 12 from 1990 to 2011.

TADELL Math Assessment (Tools for the Assessment and Development of English Language Learners). Designed to determine how much mathematical language the student understands in English, and to identify the student’s skill and instructional level for each of the five NCTM strands in English or Spanish.

Assessing Math Concepts (Kathy Richardson)
This assessment series focuses on the core concepts that must be in place if children are to understand and be successful in mathematics. The training is in the use of the series of nine formative assessments for PreK to 3rd grade mathematics. The series and training is based on the premise that teachers will be able to provide more effective instruction when they are aware of the essential learning phases of children in mathematics and students’ progress within these learning phases. Training consists of learning to use the assessments and understanding what they tell us about children, learning what interventions are appropriate to each assessment, and learning how to use whole class instruction or small group instruction to teach these mathematical skills.

Exemplars
Exemplars performance material provides teachers and administrators with a way of teaching and assessing problem-solving and communication. Our real-world material engages students and promotes reasoning and communication. Each problem-solving task has been classroom-tested and can be used for assessment, instruction and/or professional development.

Standards

Keystone Investigating the Iowa Core Mathematics Resources Google Site
This site includes many resources to help in understanding the CCSSM standards and lesson planning.

Common Core Flip Books
K-12 resources from Kansas Association of Teachers of Mathematics. They take the Common Core Mathematics standards and unpack them with explanations, examples, etc.

Standards for Mathematical Practice by Grade Level
K-12 resources to help support teachers in implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice in their classrooms.

Progressions Documents for the Common Core Math Standards
These documents describe the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics.

CCSSM-Shifts and Instruction Implications- Mathematical Shifts and Major Works of Grade (K-8) (MS Word)
Not all of the content in a given grade is emphasized equally in the standards. Some clusters require greater emphasis than the others based on the depth of the ideas, the time that they take to master, and/or their importance to future mathematics or the demands of college and career readiness. In addition, an intense focus on the most critical material at each grade allows depth in learning, which is carried out through the Standards for Mathematical Practice. To say that some things have greater emphasis is not to say that anything in the standards can safely be neglected in instruction. Neglecting material will leave gaps in student skill and understanding and may leave students unprepared for the challenges of a later grade. The following table identifies the Major Clusters, Additional Clusters, and Supporting Clusters for this grade.

K-8 Publishers' Criteria for the Common Core State Standards of Mathematics

Common Core State Standards Mathematics Curriculum Materials Analysis Project
The purpose of the CCSS Mathematics Curriculum Analysis Project is to provide a set of tools that will assist K-12 text book adoption committees, school administrators, and K-12 teachers in selecting mathematics curriculum materials that support implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
