Individual student assessment recordkeeping grading and reporting hb 2220

Individual Student Assessment, Recordkeeping, Grading, and Reporting - HB 2220


Individual student assessment recordkeeping grading and reporting hb 22201

  • Show academic content standards (, at least annually, the student and parents whether the student’s progress to standards meets or exceeds grade-level standards expectations.

Individual Student Assessment, Recordkeeping, Grading, and Reporting - HB 2220


Individual student assessment recordkeeping grading and reporting hb 22202

  • Assure academic content standards ( that a student’s academic grades reflect his/her academic proficiency.

Grading elements

  • Major exams academic content standards (

  • Performance assessments

  • Reports or projects

  • Student portfolios

  • Exit tickets or tasks

  • Students’ notebooks or journals

  • Classroom observations

  • Oral presentations

  • Homework completion

  • Homework quality

  • Class participation

  • Work habits and neatness

  • Class attendance

  • Punctuality of assignments

  • Class behavior or attitude

  • Progress made

  • Class participation

  • Work habits and neatness

  • Effort put forth

What the assessment research tells us
What the assessment research tells us… academic content standards (

Grading IS NOT essential in the teaching and learning process.

Feedback IS!!!


Assessment for learning

  • Clarifying, understanding, and sharing learning intentions. academic content standards (

  • Engineering effective classroom discussions, tasks and activities that elicit evidence of learning.

  • Providing feedback that moves learners forward.

  • Activating students as learning resources for one another.

  • Activating students as owners of their own learning.

Examining student thinking geometric patterning tasks
Examining Student Thinking: activities that elicit evidence of learning. Geometric patterning tasks

  • Two 3rd grade tasks and associated student work samples

  • Questions to consider:

    • What mathematical ideas do these tasks draw out?

    • What do you notice? What do you wonder?

    • What surprises you?

    • What are the implications for your practice?


A typical algebra task

Investigate and report all you can about this pattern.


Investigate and report all you can about the following growing pattern.

You may want to consider including things like:

  • observations about the pattern

  • a rough sketch or picture of some larger figures in this pattern

  • some different ways of 'finding' the total number of tile in any figure in pattern (like methods of counting, a table, a graph, a formula or rule)

  • Which figure has 120 tiles? How did you decide? What is another way to determine this?

  • How would you convince somebody else that you are right?

Big ideas

  • Differentiate by posing a good task and interacting with groups/individuals based on observed needs.

  • Specify learning targets met as revealed in the student work and press for additional possibilities… with feedback (feedforward) that presses students to consider next steps/questions.

What are the implications for our practice as we prepare future mathematics educators?
