A Year of Common Core Aligned Math Tests!

Oh my goodness this took forever, but I am SO happy to say that I have finally finished my packet of 1st Grade Math Common Core Aligned Assessments!  I am pooped!  I've worked my tail off this week between finally completing this beast and planning/preparing for my daughter's 2nd birthday!

I know there are other packets of Common Core aassessments out there that were completed before I could finish mine, but you know how it is when you have a vision for something.  You just have to see it through!  The way I designed this packet was to create a Unit Test for each of the 4 broader standards set out by the CCSS:  1)Operations & Algebraic Thinking, 2)Number & Operations in Base Ten, 3)Measurement & Data, and 4)Geometry.  Then I created Unit Subtests for each of the standards listed under these headings.  I then created a Problem Solving assessment for each of the Unit Tests and Subtests to help extend student learning and assessment.  These are written in the style that some of you may know from "Exemplars".  They should be solved using problem solving strategies such as drawing a picture, number sentences, graphs, charts, tables, and then completed with a written explanation of the student's thinking. 

Well I'm not sure if I'm feeling generous or if I'm just delirious from all this cooking and baking, but how about a sample of the assessment packet for free?  Get the Unit 1 test by clicking on the image below!
