Target Audience: K-3 Classroom teachers, interventionists and special educators
The Ongoing Assessment Project (OGAP) for Additive Reasoning is a systemic and intentional formative assessment system in mathematics grounded in research on how students learn mathematics.
Through rich professional development teachers learn how to use formative assessments in their classrooms and analyze the resulting information about student thinking to guide instruction.
Participants will learn how to use field-tested item banks, learning trajectory frameworks, and a set of instructional strategies that both enhance the formative assessment process and build content, curricular and pedagogical knowledge.
OGAP includes strategies and tools for gathering information about student learning so that teachers can make informed instructional decisions and maximize the use of their current mathematics program.
OGAP frameworks synthesize problem structures, problem situations, and typical learning progressions for specific mathematical topics to help teachers analyze evidence in their own students’ work and make deliberate instructional decisions.
