The performance assessments you will find here were designed to align to particular Common Core State Standards in reading and writing, and to anchor specific units of study in data collection and close observation of student work. In the fifth and eighth grade assessments, students will study nonfiction research methods in reading workshop and research-based argument essay writing in writing workshop.
They must submit the form before Thursday and I must approve their request in order for them to retake or rewrite on Thursday during class.
Most of the time, the students tasks should not indicate missing, but "turned in" when they go into those tasks in the Google Classroom.
You will find teacher instructions as well as student-facing instructions and supports; you will also find rubrics that clearly connect the task to the CCSS, and annotated and graded examples of student work. Check out the forms below: The texts for these tasks are included where we have obtained permissions; in some cases you will need to purchase the relevant texts.
I will also be available in the morning before school, if students give me notice that they are coming in for help.
We recommend viewing these as both pre- and post-assessments: Performance Assessments engage students in authentic, high-level work that is aligned to curricular standards so that teachers can more carefully plan for instruction that meets students where they are and moves them forward.
The overarching goal of assessing students is to provide a clear sense of what students have internalized and what still needs support in regards to the standards-based skills at hand.
I strongly advise students to read over any text discussed in class, especially if they are struggling with the comprehension assessments. You must obtain permission from the NYC Department of Education for any other use of the assessments. The assessment will indicate the grade, the correct and incorrect questions and the strength as well as weak areas in relationship to the 8th grade standards.
Students have access to request forms in Google Classroom to retake or rewrite a task that is a practice or assessment grade. Students should study stems every night for 5 minutes to prepare for bi-monthly quizzes.
In the case of the second grade assessment, children will study nonfiction reading and informational book writing as two separate but related units. The book contains rigorous and challenging texts. If we are still working on a task, this may occur once in awhile.
Sometimes class assignments in Google Classroom may indicate late or missing. They must first request to do so by specifically noting what they will need to do differently to be successful when they retake an assessment or rewrite a summary, narrative or essay.
Students may decide to read a text in myPerspectives to be better prepared when we discuss and annotate it in class. Homework Students will be required to complete missing classwork at home.
When absent, students should check the Google Classroom, weekly agenda, and syllabus to determine what they missed. Every time they have an assessment, I create a form for them to fill out if they would like to bring up their grade. I have headphones for all students in my classroom.Get expert tips, free printables and fun activities for your child’s learning journey.
