  • Review

  • Questions/Discussion

  • MathVIDS information


Mda at a glance

MDA at a Glance

  • instructional specific information

  • focus onconceptual understanding, procedural accuracy, & mathematical thinking

  • incorporates 4 effective assessment practices

    • Student interest assessment

    • C-R-A assessment

    • Error pattern analysis

    • Flexible mathematics interview

  • can be completed in an ordinary classroom period


Important concepts

Important Concepts

  • Level of Cognitive Understanding

  • Level of Expressive Understanding

  • Mathematical Thinking

  • Procedural Accuracy

  • Instructional Hypothesis


Level of cognitive understanding

Level of Cognitive Understanding

  • At what level(s) do students understand the target mathematics?

  • Three levels:

    • concrete (objects/manipulatives)

    • representational (drawing)

    • abstract (numbers/symbols only)


Level of expressive understanding

Level of Expressive Understanding

  • In what manner can students show their understanding?

  • Recognition (receptive level)

  • Doing (expressive level)


Mathematical thinking

Mathematical Thinking

  • Are students able to think about mathematics in ways...

  • 1) that are reasonable?

  • 2) that show understandings of how relevant mathematics concepts/skills across the curriculum “fit” together in order to problem solve?

  • Reasoning

  • Approach to Problem Solving


Procedural accuracy

Procedural Accuracy

  • Are students able to use effective algorithms/procedures in order to successfully compute?

  • Algorithms

  • Procedures


Instructional hypothesis

Instructional Hypothesis

  • Provides you with a focused approach to teaching that specifically addresses the needs of your students based on the results of a mathematics dynamic assessment.


Instructional hypothesis1

Instructional Hypothesis

  • Components:

    • Context

    • What students can do

    • What students cannot do

    • Reason

“Given ________,

students can _______

students cannot ______,

because __________.”


Mathematics dynamic assessment description

Mathematics Dynamic Assessment: Description

  • Student Interest Inventory

  • C-R-A Assessment

  • Error Pattern Analysis

  • Flexible Interview


Student interest inventory

Student Interest Inventory

  • Ask students to describe interests they have in a variety of areas in a format you can pick up and review. For example:

    • things they like to do with friends

    • things they like to do alone

    • things they do with their family

    • hobbies

    • interests or special talents they have

Student Interest Inventory


C r a assessment

C-R-A Assessment

  • Identify target concept (e.g., comparing fractions)

  • Develop 3-5 assessment items:

    • concrete, representational, abstract levels

    • recognition and expressive response formats

  • Create concrete, representational, & abstract centers

  • Develop process for students responding to and showing you their responses

  • Evaluate student performance at each level of understanding and response format


Error pattern analysis

Error Pattern Analysis

  • Review student responses

  • Determine whether students consistently use faulty procedures for responses that are incorrect

  • Evaluate the meaning of the error pattern...

    • does it represent lack of conceptual understanding?

    • does it represent lack of pre-requisite knowledge?

    • does it represent sensory-motor problems?

    • does it represent impulsivity or distractibility?


What does the error pattern mean

Flexible interview

Flexible Interview

  • “Listen” for student’s mathematical thinking based on problems to which they have responded...

  • ask them to describe to you how the solved the problem

  • ask them to “teach” you how to solve the problem

  • ask them to watch & listen as you solve the problem and to “catch” you doing something incorrect

  • use concrete materials or drawings to further explore student understandings
