End of Year SMARTR Outcome #1: Math

Students who achieved 3s (consistent control of grade-level expectations in accuracy and strategy communication) at the baseline assessment point and then took the following grade level’s assessment will be expected to increase their overall raw score from the midyear point.

Strategy 1  

  • Support student conceptual knowledge through consistently implementing cooperative learning in Math Workshop in grades K-6.

Strategy 2

  • Consistent use of open-response math common assessments, designed to elicit student problem solving, across units throughout the year in Collaborative Teams to drive instruction.

Strategy 3

  • Individualized professional development to support teachers in reaching these math SIIP goals.
