Practice Assignment Quiz

On Friday we had our first Assignment Quiz in Course 2 Honors.  This was a practice quiz and I did not expect the students to receive perfect scores this time around.  This was an opportunity to practice the timing of the quiz and how to navigate through their previously completed work.  Some students realized that they needed to be more organized and have the numbers in the correct order so they could be efficient on the quiz. As we graded them together in class, I was able to show the students where I expected them to show work and how their answers should be shown on their assignments going forward.  Students typically scored around 5 pts lower on this practice than I anticipate their score will be on the next Assignment Quiz if no modifications (based on what they learned about the expectations) were made.  This went in the Formative category in Aeries which is worth 0% of their grade.

End of Course Test 7th and 8th Grade

The end of course test was given the week before middle school "Fun Week".  It covers everything we learned in 7th/8th grade (depending on which math level your student is in).  This test will not affect anyone's grade in Aeries, however the score will be entered in Aeries in case you would like to know how your student did on the 7th/8th grade standards that were taught this year.  This test is being given in order to evaluate the CPM program, your child's knowledge of the content, and to get a benchmark score for how well our 7th/8th graders have mastered the content.  This information will be used by the 8th/9th grade math teachers to know what their incoming students know well and what they need more help with.  It is awesome that our entire school is using CPM so each year will build upon the previous and there won't be an entirely new system and layout for your student to learn.  :)
