Student Assessment in Integrated Math 2

I will be using a variety of assessment strategies, whether it be the regular tests, quizzes, assignments and homework, or other creative manners through with can demonstrate your mastery of skills/concepts (i.e. model building, producing videos/movies, teaching peers, etc ...)

The percentage grade you earn in SEMESTER 2 of the course is comprised of the following:

Unit Tests

These major assessments are usually the summative unit tests that take place at the end of each major unit and evaluate students' understanding of a wide range of concepts learned over a period of 4-6 weeks.

40 %

Unit Quizzes

These minor assessments are usually quizzes that occur within a unit and evaluate students' understanding of a narrower range of concepts learned over a period of several weeks.

10 %


Assignments will range in degrees of complexity and time commitments. Daily assignments happen within the time frame of ONE CLASS PERIOD. Weekly assignments happen within the time frame of ONE WEEK. Extended assignments happen within the time frame of several weeks/one month. These written assignments are given so that the students gain experience in performing and writing about mathematical investigations and modeling tasks.

Video Notes & Quizzes

These assessment tasks are one form of direct instruction for this semester and focus on watching videos that directly deal with algebraic processes in Math. Students take notes as they record the developing examples and then are quizzed on the math skill the next period

10 %


Homework tasks are designed to practice concepts learned in recent lessons. Since mistakes are considered to be an important part of the learning process, homework tasks are graded on completion and effort rather than the accuracy of the work.

10 %

Class Participation & Contribution

When class time is given for class work, for explorations & for assignments, students are expected to be on task and to be contributing to the development of the skill/topic within their groups & within the class. Participation & contribution is graded according to the linked rubric

10 %

Semester Exam

A cumulative final exam is given to assess mastery of all topics studied over the course of the semester

20 %

All work will be evaluated for some or all of the following assessment criteria:

(1) Knowledge/Understanding of skills and concepts

(2) Application of the skills/concepts in modeling scenarios

(3) Thinking/Inquiry/Problem Solving related to either pure or applied math

(4) Your ability to communicate your knowledge
