Grading:

  • High School EOC teachers will use the middle of the semester benchmark to satisfy Greene County School Board Policy 4.600. Teachers are to use discretion but cannot give a score lower than the recommended score from Case (sent in PDF reports to Principals after the testing window closes). Use professional judgment to ensure the grading process is fair to students.
  • K-8 teachers may use the benchmark score for a grade as appropriate. Teachers cannot give a score lower than the recommended grade mark from CASE.

Hello Teachers,

Comprehensive Educational Resources (CER) has created Common Formative Assessments (CFAs) this year. Teacher teams from 10 school districts worked together to create the CFAs. This great collaboration is an optional resource for you to use. All of the CFAs are now loaded in Mastery Connect. These are for use at the teacher's discretion. 

The CFAs are aligned to the CER Pacing Guides. You can find the CER Pacing Guides on the CER website by grade and content area: https://www.comprehensiveeducationalresources.org 

You can also find the CER pacing guides in Mastery Connect. They are called “Curriculum Maps” in Mastery Connect. Please follow the directions on the attached document called “Curriculum Map Quick Reference Guide.” 

The teams created CFAs for the following grades and content areas:

3 Math

3 Science

3 Social Studies

 

4 Math

4 Science

4 Social Studies

 

5 Math

5 Science

5 Social Studies

 

6 Math

6 ELA

7 Math

7 Social Studies

8 Math

8 ELA

8 Social Studies

Algebra 1 (Semester and Year-long)

Algebra 2 (Semester and Year-long)

Geometry (Semester and Year-long)

Biology (Semester and Year-long)

English 1 (Semester and Year-long)

English 2 (Semester and Year-long)

US History (Semester and Year-long)

 

In general, there are 3 CFAs for each benchmark. However, some teams used their expertise to create more or less based on the demands of the standards. For ELA, the CFAs are aligned to the strands, since there is not a pacing guide for ELA.

Please follow the directions on the attached document called “CER Assessments Quick Reference Guide” to find the CFAs. We used a similar naming convention for each CFA. For example, G3MathB1Formative1, means: Grade 3, Math, Benchmark 1, Formative Assessment 1. If you have trouble finding the CFAs, try clearing your cache and cookies and ensure that you have selected the “All” tab in the Assessments view to change the Created By drop down.

Please let me know if you have any questions. You may also reach out to Mia Hyde, Director of CER, by email at [email protected].
