ISTEP+10 Mathematics 2018
A Steep Hill to Climb
ISTEP+ 10 Mathematics is a process and not an event. Students are scored on both content knowledge and process knowledge used to support answers. Successful schools have designed a year-long plan for spring testing to ensure students are ready to meet the challenge.
This workshop is designed to help schools, teachers, and students to be better prepared for the spring 2018 math ISTEP+ assessment.
Workshop Objectives Addressed:
Identify Grade 10 Math “Big Ideas”
- Identify instructional strategies
- What kinds of discourse are appropriate?
- What kinds of assessment questions are appropriate?
- What is the depth of knowledge?
Use ISTEP+ Data from 2017 to make decisions for 2018
- Participants will be requested to bring this 2017 ISTEP+ Report:
- Grade 10 Applied Skills Frequency Distribution Report
- This will tell participants about student discourse and content knowledge.
Scoring Student Work
- Participants will be sent a set of sample applied skills problems to administer to 10th grade students.
- These student papers will be scored during the workshop for content and process.
- Participants will receive resources ready-made for ISTEP+ 2018 math.
