Assessment Summary
(Hypothetical Example)

Review Session: All students actively participated in the review session!

Working with Bills and Coins Exercise: The kinesthetic aspect of this activity really helped the students to get into the mindset
of the lesson. Having the fake money in their hands helped the students better understand the concept of adding money.
Adding Bills and Coins Worksheet: The students enjoy working independently and receiving help when they need it.
Exit Slip: The exit slip was a great way to get the students participating and thinking about the importance of adding money.
They will need to be aware of this issue when they are in the real world.
Online Assessment: 80 minutes is a long period, and every day it is a struggle to keep the students engaged. Sometimes their
online scores do not reflect their best work because they try to rush through it. However, their assessments showed very little
error and a high level of accuracy.
