A Guide for Assessing Mathematical Understanding

The guide contains all the information needed to use the Assessing Mathematical Understanding materials. Sections in the guide include a review of the research on the importance of early learning experiences, a rationale for assessing student understanding, potential misuses of assessments, and recommended instructional practices. The mathematical concepts and student learning goals and how they are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics are described. Directions explain how to administer the assessments and keep track of student data using the reproducible records.
