Mathematics Assesslets are provided in grades 1-8 by domains included in the Georgia Standards of Excellence. High school Mathematics Assesslets are available in the EOC courses of Algebra 1, Coordinate Algebra, Geometry and Analytic Geometry with content that is presented by semester, and based on the Georgia Department of Education curriculum maps for these courses.
GCA’s Mathematics Assesslets include:
• 2 selected-response items
• 2-3 constructed-response items
• 1-2 extended-response tasks
Extended-response tasks are designed to be cumulative in nature, requiring students to apply their knowledge and skills without assessing standards in isolation.
Cumulative Math Assesslets
Cumulative Math Assesslets are designed to provide a more comprehensive view of student learning than the currently available Assesslets, which are designed to provide a quick “snapshot” of how students are approaching mastery.
Cumulative Assesslets are aligned and assess a representation of the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). These cumulative forms can help teachers to gather strong evidence on student learning toward the overall end-of-year expectations at each grade level. That is, teachers can identify a wider range of knowledge, skills, and concepts that students have not mastered so adjustments can be made to instructional practices and strategies. Cumulative Assesslets are not intended to predict performance on the EOG and EOC assessments. They do provide information on how well students understand concepts and can demonstrate knowledge and skills that can help prepare for Georgia Milestones.
Because more content is assessed, Cumulative Assesslets contain 20 or 25 items for grades 1-2 and grades 3 through HS, respectively. Assesslets are designed to require extended reasoning and critical thinking beyond basic recall.
