Take a look!
Here is what I LOVED:
- The student has an IEP to use a calculator. She prompted the student to use one where it was needed.
- She underlined or circled key words in the word problems and wrote out the necessary equation for the students. The students can see the key words and the equation and make the connection!
- On number 6, I love how she put the operation, but still required the student to fill in the necessary numbers.
- On number 10, she walked them through the strategy of rounding by giving them choices and providing steps and the blank lines and operation sign.
Now, obviously, this child needs a lot of modification and support but this manner of differentiation could easily be replicated to meet the variety of needs in any classroom. I really felt like this way was still, in a way, teaching the student while they were being assessed. I don't know about you, but I love it!
What are some ways that you differentiate math assessments in your classroom? I would love to read your ideas!
