More About This Textbook

Overview

Assess students' performance, attitudes, and abilities across the range of elementary mathematical skills with this informal assessment tool!

Designed to spark conversations between teachers and students, Guillaume's Classroom Mathematics Inventory for Grades K-6: An Informal Assessment, 1/e (CMI) is an effective means of evaluating students' conceptual understanding, computational proficiency, and problem-solving abilities. It may also be used to assess mathematical attitudes and dispositions.

For preservice and inservice teachers alike!

The CMI is fully standards-based, helping teachers measure student performance aligned with NCTM standards, as well as standards set by a number of states. The CMI helps preservice teachers forge the link between assessment and instruction as they determine students' current progress and use results to plan instruction. It also provides research results in mathematics achievement to help classroom teachers understand how other students in the nation fare related to the content presented in each chapter.

Features:

  • The CMI “Toolkit” includes manipulatives, allowing teachers to assess and support student understanding in ways that are not purely linguistic.
  • The K-6 content span of the CMI assessment will allow teachers to assess an individual child's performance, whether it is below grade-level expectations or exceeds them.
  • The CMI discusses the quality of assessment that drives instructional planning, providing teachers with strategies to improve the reliability of their assessments.
  • Interpretation of assessment is a challenge for teachers who are faced with many assessment results. The CMI gives advice on planning instruction based on results.

About the author:

Andrea Guillaume is Professor of Elementary & Bilingual Education at California State University, Fullerton. She has written several texts on classroom teaching and mentoring and is vitally interested in issues related to active teaching and learning..
