Wright Group/McGraw-Hill has announced that the latest edition of Everyday Mathematics features the Assessment Management System (AMS), an online tool that allows teachers to track individual and group progress toward Grade-Level Goals as identified in the research-based program.

 

Available at EverydayMathOnline.com, the AMS is integrated with the complete Everyday Mathematics eSuite, which includes an ePlanner, eGames, the Interactive Student Reference Book, Family Letters, and more. Based on assessment data, teachers can link to the Differentiation Handbook and assign remedial or enrichment activities.

  

As students complete work in class and reach assessment opportunities in Everyday Mathematics, teachers have the option to collect data from those assessments using the AMS, which includes:

·       Ongoing Assessment: Recognizing Student Achievement

·       Progress Check: Oral and Slate

·       Progress Check: Written Assessment

·       Open Response Questions

 

Teachers can select the "Detailed Scoring" button next to each question, or for the entire assessment, to more thoroughly assess specific students. Students are scored as "making adequate progress," "not making adequate progress," or "not assessed." Teachers can give the student a specific number score when they use Detailed Scoring. Notes about the individual student also can be entered into the "Comments about Student" field.

 

As teachers collect and enter student data, a number of reporting options become available. Both class and student reports exist allowing teachers to obtain information about both student performance and the program scope and sequence.

 

Reports are organized by a combination of class or student, and lesson or grade-level goal. Teachers can use links within the reports to do the following:

·       Jump quickly from report type to report type

·       Drill down for more detailed information

·       Step back out for more of an overview
