The Big Product Swap!!
It's finally here! Today is the blogger product swap! I will be looking at a product that will be a useful addition to my assessment portfolio. With the adoption of the Common Core Standards, many schools find themselves scrambling to create assessments that accurately align to the standards.

After all, if you are teaching from the standards, you should be testing from the standards as well.  An increase in instructional rigor should prompt an increase in rigor of our assessment instruments.

The product that I reviewed is a 2nd Grade Common Core Math Assessments pack and was created by Kathi Berry from Primary Possibilities!   These assessments do a great job of testing the standards to mathematical proficiency.  The assessments cover standards 1-4 from the Numbers & Operations in Base Ten domain.

This 31 page packet includes one formative and three summative assessments for each standard and includes both multiple choice and short answer test items. They include opportunities for implementing problem solving skills as well.  Here are a few sample assessments.

In addition, the packet contains assessment scoring sheets and graphing sheets for both individual and class progress monitoring.

You can purchase your own copy of this assessment product from here for only $5.00.  In addition to this product, Kathi also has assessment packs to use with the other standards.  I know you will enjoy using these ready made assessments in your classroom.  

You will want to check out the other items from Kathi's TPT store and visit her blog, Primary Possibilities, for great ideas for your classroom and for implementing the Common Core in grades K-2! Thanks for reading along and keep on teaching the math!
