Prioritizing Math Standards

Triage for the Here and Now

The move to emergency remote learning was a move that no one planned on making. Educators showed their resiliency though and jumped into action to best support students. Now that the Governor has made the decision to continue remote learning for the remainder of this school year, we must make purposeful decisions as to what content to teach now so that students are well prepared for next year.

As a result, MidWest JMT Math Specialists joined forces and created Prioritizing Math Standards: Triage for Here and Now. Two Question and Answer (Q&A) sessions will be offered for those leaders and teachers who are interested in diving deeper into this work. Please find the links to register for these sessions below.

Also, the MidWest JMT is working on Gap Assessments and needs your help. More information and a form to gather your input can be found below.

3 Question Survey and Sample Online Assessment

We know that math skills build over time. Since grades 3-8 and Regents exams have been cancelled, we would like to offer you a simple-to-use online assessment for your outgoing grades 3-8 and high school Regents math students.

In exchange for answering a brief survey, you will receive access to an online assessment with 10-20 multiple choice items. You may give this brief assessment in June for summer planning and / or in September to determine your students' readiness.
