Algebraic Relationships Patterns, relations and functions Expressions, equations and inequalities Properties Mathematics Objectives/Sub-skills**Mathematics Test Format**• 4-5 Sessions • Estimated Time: • Approximately 160 minutes grades 3-5 180 minutes grades 6-8, 10 • Selected response (multiple choice) (approx. 80% of score points) • one point • assigned to one reporting category • Constructed response (approx. 20% of score points) • Grades 3-8 • one point – content • two points– process • Mathematics tools • Manipulatives (pattern blocks, tangrams, pentomino) • Measuring tools (ruler, protractor) • Calculators • Grade 10 (assigned to process & content) • - Brief Constructed Response Items: • 2 points • - Ext. Constructed Response Items: • 4 points**Process**Number Geometry Measurement Algebra Mathematics Blueprint Statistics & Probability**Calculator Use Policy**Grades 3 & 4: All sessions – no calculator (*) Grades 5-8 & 10: One session – no calculator Remaining sessions – calculator required Calculator Specifications: Grades 5-8: 4-function calculator, no advantage using higher powered calculator Grade 10: scientific calculator Districts may opt to allow scientific or graphing calculators at all levels (5-8 & 10), but must assure that memory is disabled on graphing calculators. Calculators with QWERTY keyboards, infra-red capabilities, or memory disks may not be used. (* See accommodations for students with IEP)**Calculator Use Policy – Students with Disabilities**• Two situations • Computation/non-calculator sessions • No calculator use – the same for everyone • Problem solving sessions • Grades 3 and 4 – calculator use with an IEP only**Objective:Algebraic Relationships**Sub-skill:Patterns, Relations and Functions Descriptor:Describe, recognize, interpret and translate graphical representations of mathematical and real-world phenomena on coordinate grids, e.g., slope, intercepts, rate of change, linear and non-linear functions, and quadratic, exponential and constant functions. WKCE-CRT Framework**Constructed Response Item Example**T W Two large storage tanks, T and W, contain water. T starts losing water at the same time additional water starts flowing into W. The graph below shows the amount of water in each tank over a period of hours.**T**W Assume that the rates of water loss and water gain continue as shown. At what number of hours will the amount of water in T be equal to the amount of water in W ? Show or explain how you found your answer.**Scoring Guide**• Correct • Correct response • Partial • Number of hours is incorrect, but falls between 6 1/2 and 8 1/2 and a correct procedure is demonstrated.ORNumber of hours is correct, but accompanying justification is insufficient or missing • Incorrect • Incorrect response**Solution:8 hours.**Graphical Solution:Extend both lines to the right until they intersect. Then read the horizontal coordinate of the point of intersection. Note: If lines are extended correctly until they intersect, this will serve as sufficient justification. No words are required in this situation. Algebraic Solution:Equation of lines:T y = -50x + 900W y = 25x + 300Point of intersection (8hrs, 500 gal)**Performance Results**Percentage of Students Correct19 % Partial 31% Incorrect41 % Omitted Item 7 % Off Task 2 %**Objective:Measurement**Sub-skill:Direct Measurement Descriptor:Read and interpret measuring instruments WKCE-CRT Framework**Selected Response Item**• The Celsius temperature rose from 4 degrees above zero to the temperature shown on the thermometer above.
