Uncovering Student Thinking About Mathematics in the Common Core, Grades K-2: 25 Formative Assessment Probes

Full Description: 

This book offers 25 new formative assessment probes specifically for Grades K–2 and directly aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Formative assessment probes help teachers identify students’ understandings and misunderstandings of key math concepts and choose instructional strategies to meet students' needs. Each probe is designed to help teachers: objectively evaluate each child’s prior basic numeracy and math knowledge; systematically address common mistakes and obstacles before they become long-term problems; help students integrate new mathematical ideas and immediately pinpoint areas of struggle; and plan targeted instruction that builds on students’ current understandings while addressing their identified difficulties.
