Mathematics Problem Solving Tasks Grades 3-8

Local Performance Assessment Requirement

Overview

Work samples will more effectively support student learning when they are integrated systematically into the district curriculum and are also part of classroom instruction (that is, the normal, ongoing evaluation and grading process). For example, when they are used to help summarize a unit of study or extending the concepts presented, work samples can be a natural part of classroom practices and be offered many times during the school year.

These examples of work sample tasks are aligned to the 2011-12 Mathematics Problem Solving Scoring Guide and to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Local Performance Assessment Tasks*

* There is no performance assessment requirement for grade 2; the grade 2 tasks are intended to give teachers examples of tasks that are aligned to the 2nd grade standards.
