Creation and Dissemination of Upper-elementary Mathematics Assessment Modules
The Learning Mathematics for Teaching (LMT) project and the Educational Testing Services (ETS) have formed a partnership to construct, pilot test, re-design, validate, and disseminate five assessments of student achievement for use in upper elementary grades as growth-sensitive measures of student learning in mathematics. The assessments are in the areas of (1) number and operations, (2) pre-algebra and algebra, and (3) geometry and measurement and are based in the literature on student's cognitive growth in these mathematical domains. The instruments are aligned with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Focal Points and with existing "mathematics knowledge for teaching" (MKT) classroom observation instruments.
