Additional Book Details

"Clearly demonstrates how to design rubrics for math, a content area that desperately needs support. The use of rubrics combined with performance tasks helps educators teach math at a higher, more engaging level. A must-have book for all educators seeking to build a strong thinking-based math program."
—Lee Ann Cervini, Principal, Holley Elementary School, NY

"Makes a distinct contribution to the field. Not only does the text clearly explain how to create rubrics and performance tasks in a step-by-step manner, each chapter also provides an example for immediate use in the classroom."
—Marcia Carlson, Sixth-Grade Teacher, Crestview Elementary School, Clive, IA

Enhance students′ understanding of math concepts through rubrics and hands-on learning!

Teaching mathematics in today′s world requires practices and procedures integrated with performance tasks that actively involve students. In this second edition of Designing Rubrics for Mathematics, Eileen Depka clarifies the purpose of rubrics in math instruction and illustrates the relationship between assessment, rubrics, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics′ Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000).

Each chapter in this research-based updated edition offers easy-to-use strategies, suggestions, creative sample problems, and tasks to engage students in hands-on learning while allowing them to have fun in the process. With two new chapters focused on communication to deepen students′ understanding of math concepts and using rubric data to improve instruction, this resource provides teachers with:

Reflective activities to use with students for metacognitive processing Strategies for creating standards-linked rubrics, plus samplesTips for differentiating performance tasks How-to′s for student-created rubrics Internet resource links for rubric development, mathematical focal points, and standards

Designing Assessment for Mathematics, Second Edition, demonstrates how to drive instruction and successfully boost achievement levels by providing students with experiences that impact their learning and performance.
