Assessing and Grading
Some teachers create a point system to assess student work on the daily Problems, ACE Exercises, Mathematical Reflections, and on the formal assessments in Check Up, Partner Quiz, Unit Test, and Unit Project. You can also use a standards-based grading system to assess student understanding. Lastly, you can look through students Problem work and ACE Exercises to find some that demonstrate their best evidence of understanding for each of the goals.
