Goodbye, Multiple-choice. Hello, Common Core.
Students are expected to demonstrate mastery on high-stakes assessments using technology and tools that are intimidating and complex. Our Common Core programs integrate rigor with support that scaffolds to build fluency with the questions that students will face on test day.
Studies have shown that students can regress up to 20% over the summer. Avoid the “summer slide” and keep students’ math and ELA skills sharp! Schedule a consultation and we’ll send you a free demo for you and your students.
Compare traditional assessments with how students will demonstrate Common Core mastery. Students will face over 15 new question types under the PARCC and Smarter Balanced consortia.
1. GRAPHING/SHAPE CREATOR
Students will need to solve for side length and area by drawing a triangle or rectangular cross-sections, using a new Graphing Shape Creator tool.
2. MULTIPLE SELECTION
Students will be increasingly challenged by having to select multiple correct answers for a single question.
3. Drag & Drop
Students will solve algebraic equations and probability by dragging answers into the right box.
4. Numeric Entry
Students will be required to enter in numeric answers for which they have solved, limiting opportunities to choose a “best guess” answer.
5. Short Essay
Students will be expected to write short essay responses to explain their process, justify their reasoning, or critique logical arguments.
SBAC & PARCC
Regardless if your state subscribes to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium or Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, Revolution K12 has developed SmartCity and PARCCville, two programs aligned to the standards and assessment formats of either consortia.
Are you prepared?
The arrival of Common Core means that every student in America will need a program that speaks to Common Core. Revolution K12’s programs provide an incredibly flexible and adaptive tool for teachers to build math fundamentals with any Math student in America from Grade 6 to Algebra II and Integrated Maths I-III.
