Assessing for Proficiency in Mathematics

Our session highlights reasons to assess using proficiency progressions and provides resources that support implementing it in a high school math classroom.

When we use well-designed progressions, students start with success and a clear understanding of what is needed to move their learning forward.  When we use them to assess, we can shift our students from a "points gathering" mindset to one that focuses on learning.

Full sets of resources for Math 8 and 9 will be shared with participants.
