Targeted Assessment and Feedback for Grades 3–8.

In Math That Matters, Marian Small helps support teachers of Grades 3–8 in providing more effective targeted assessment and constructive feedback. The book offers support to new and veteran teachers in doing three fundamental things:

  • identifying the most important math to assess
  • constructing meaningful assessments — both formative and summative — to measure student understanding
  • providing students with feedback that is clear, timely, and specific

Examples for each grade level are provided, along with details on how to pose questions, analyze errors, and help students understand and learn from their mistakes. The book offers specific guidance for when and how to offer feedback on both correct and incorrect answers in order to advance students’ mathematical thinking.
