Systematic, standards-based instruction, practice, and assessment build students’ mastery.
Using the four-step process, diagnose student performance, target the most important topics, and guide students through scaffolded instruction, practice, and assessment. Each lesson begins with an assessment of prior knowledge, builds the targeted skill through guided practice, and develops students’ competence and confidence using independent practice and partner activities. Unit practice tests provide a range of standardized test items to assess progress and identify areas requiring additional instruction or intervention.
Individualize instruction through diagnostic tests, lesson progress monitoring, and unit tests, calibrate preparedness for state tests using two full-length assessments.
A Tryout Test determines strengths and weaknesses and guides individual instruction with questions matching those found on new state and national assessments.
Lessons provide interactive guided instruction followed by independent practice. Students exhibit math understanding by showing and explaining math concepts.
Skill-focused lessons within a Unit conclude with a practice test to ensure student understanding.
Following all of the lessons, the Progress Test gauges student improvement on the same skills and question types featured on state tests.
Providing additional questions modeled on state tests, this final assessment offers an overview of the skills and concepts students have mastered and incorporates a range of test item types including multiple choice, open response, and multi-part questions.
