Math Proficiency Scales Bundle (Grades 1-6) – School Site License



Proficiency Scales are the ultimate Standards Based Grading tool! They don’t just motivate a Growth Mindset, they define how students can demonstrate mastery. Every learning standard is broken down into 4 levels of Differentiation. These Posters lead students up a progressive learning path that mirrors the way they develop concepts. Aligned to Bloom’s or Marzano’s Taxonomy of cognitive skills. From easiest-hardest: (Recall/Retrieval, Comprehension, Analysis/Application, and Knowledge Utilization/Synthesis). 

4 Learning Goal “I Can” Statements for each standard:

4. Level 4 indicates an advanced knowledge of the skill.

3. Level 3 represents proficiency in each math standard. see the stars*

2. Level 2 will include content from the previous grade level and new vocabulary that must be applied correctly for mastery of level 3.

1. Level 1 will either be derived from sub-skills of the standard, or from the background knowledge of earlier grade levels.

Students review EASY learning goals from previous grade levels in sections, “Levels” 1 and 2. These first two levels set them up to see simple examples of the connections between what they know, and what they must do this year. “Level” 3, or section 3, includes questions they should master this year. “Level” 4 includes optional enrichment tasks for your gifted and talented thinkers.

One Complete Set of Proficiency Scales for EVERY Math Standard in each Grade Level – 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th, in six separate pdf files.

* These documents are flexibly aligned to the original Common Core standards and are 50% EDITABLE; in levels 3 and 4 content only.
