Assessment

In addition to the Launch question and formative assessment that is provided throughout the Launch, Explore, and Summarize phases, multiple kinds of assessment are included in the program to help teachers see assessment and evaluation as a way to inform students of their progress, apprise parents of students’ progress, and guide the decisions a teacher makes about lesson plans and classroom interactions. Diverse kinds of assessments are included in the student Units and the Assessment Resources that mirror classroom practices as well as highlight important concepts, skills, techniques, and problem-solving strategies.

All of the assessments are available in Teacher Place, in the Printed Teacher Resources, and in ExamView. In ExamView, teachers can customize the assessments, including writing their own assessment items.
