General mathematics resources

For those looking to go to Standards Based Grading, the Traverse Bay ISD has put together learning objectives and scales based on Marzano's research.
  • go to www.tbaisd.org
  • under the “departments” tab go to “general education”
  • from the blue bulleted list, select “instructional resources”
  • in the table of contents select “math”
  • select either “preK-8 resources” or “hs resources”
  • select the header of the grade level or subject you want
  • open the folder title “Scales by Standard”

E-MATHS out of Macomb ISD has put together over 720 FREE CCSS Aligned items to be used in assessment. Click here for more information!

Diagnostic assessments

If screening assessments show that a particular child needs intervention support, diagnostic assessments need to be given to help determine students' specific needs. The "sequential inventories" listed below help place students in the learning progression for the given operation. They span several grades.

Diagnostic Inventory Whole Number Addition.pdf
Diagnostic Inventory Whole Number Subtraction.pdf
Diagnostic Inventory Whole Number Multiplication.pdf
Diagnostic Inventory Whole Number Division.pdf
Diagnostic Inventory Basic Fraction Concepts.pdf
Diagnostic Inventory Decimals.pdf
Diagnostic Inventory Fraction and Decimal Operations.pdf (contains its own answer key)
Diagnostic Fraction Assessment - basic concepts and operations

These grade-level diagnostic assessments can be used to inform curriculum and whole-class intervention decisions at a grade level. For students who are struggling at a given grade, the diagnostic assessment from the previous grade is often more helpful.

Mathematics Intervention Programs

Resources for selecting intervention programs are listed here. Be sure to right-click and choose "Open in New Window" to stay on this page.
  1. Mathematics programs rated by the What Works Clearinghouse as having evidence of positive or potentially positive effects for at least one improvement outcome. You can find more information about each of these programs at the WWC website: http://ies.ed.gov/ncee/wwc/findwhatworks.aspx Click on Math in the left-side window.
  2. Educator's Guide to What Works in Teaching Math, by the Best Evidence Encyclopedia, Robert Slavin, Cynthia Lake, Cynthia Groff
  3. Tier 2 Reading and Math Interventions, a report by the Hanover Research Group. This report summarizes research-based interventions designed to increase reading and math achievement of K-12 students during Tier 2 intervention. A total of 15 interventions are reviewed
