Information Guides to the Summative Assessments in Mathematics
*Guides contain claims structure, task types, number of questions, evidence statements, and assessment policies (for calculators, rulers and protractors, scratch paper and reference sheet). Guides are located at the bottom of the page.
TYPES OF ASSESSMENT TASKS
Concepts, Skills and Procedures
*Includes conceptual understanding, fluency, and application.
*Students solve problems from major content and supporting content for grade level. Students demonstrate fluency.
*Items are machine scored.

Test Structure:
*PBA (Performance Based Assessment) will contain all three tasks. Students will encounter multiple tasks within a session.
*EOY (End of Year) will contain only Concepts, Skills and Procedures, which is completely machine scored.

Important Notes
*More than 60% of mathematics questions will focus on the mathematics standards that have been identified as the "major work of the grade". See the Model Content Frameworks for Content Emphasis by Cluster.

*Grades 67 have access to a four function plus square root calculator. Grade 8 has access to a scientific calculator. High school (9 and up) has access to a calculator similar in functionality to a TI84 graphing calculator.
*The equation editor is an important tool for students to become familiar with. A practice tool and tutorial are available for students and teachers.

Find detailed test blueprints here! Math blueprints are built around evidence statements. Evidence statement tables and evidence statements describe the knowledge and skills that an assessment item or a task elicits from students. These are aligned directly to the Common Core State Standards, and highlight their advances especially around the coherent nature of the standards.
