The 7 students in Mr. Stem’s group shared the 3 large umbrellas they had with Ms. Thorn’s group of 11 students. If the same number of students were under each umbrella, how many students were under each umbrella? Alignment & Analysis • Aligned CCLS: 3.OA.8, 3.OA.2 • Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 3.OA.8 and assesses the student’s ability to solve a two-step word problem using addition and division of whole numbers. It also aligns to 3.OA.2 because it assesses the ability to partition a number into equal groups. • Rationale: The total number of students in the two groups is 18 (7 + 11), so 18 must be divided into 3 equal groups; therefore, 6 students are in each group. Selecting Options B and D could indicate relating of the numbers in the problem with incorrect operations (adding 7 and 3 in B and multiplying 7 and 3 in D) and therefore a lack of understanding of the problem. Selecting Option C indicates that a student had knowledge of how to begin the problem, by adding the two groups together, but then forgot to divide the students into 3 equal groups. Sample Question - 8th Grade Math • Domain: Functions • Item: CR • A trainer for a professional football team keeps track of the amount of water players consume throughout practice. The trainer observes that the amount of water consumed is a linear function of the temperature on a given day. The trainer finds that when it is 90°F the players consume about 220 gallons of water, and when it is 76°F the players consume about 178 gallons of water. – Part A: Write a linear function to model the relationship between the gallons of water consumed and the temperature. – Part B: Explain the meaning of the slope in the context of the problem. Alignment & Analysis • Aligned CCLS: 8.F.4 • Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.F.4 because it assesses a student’s ability to construct a function that models a linear relationship from a description of a relationship between two values (x,y) and interpret the rate of change. • Rationale: The correct answer indicates the ability to construct a function to model a linear relationship. Given that water consumption is a function of temperature, the values cited in the problem are understood as coordinate pairs that can be related by a linear function. 2013 K-8 Assessments 2013 Rank Change Report for Briarcliff Manor UFSD: Statewide Change in Percentile Rank on Mean Scale Score for Reported District (offset by cohort/grade) 2013 ELA 4 ELA 5 ELA 6 ELA 7 ELA 8 Math 4 Math 5 Math 6 Math 7 Math 8 Average 98.3 99.6 97.7 98.7 99.1 99.9 99.7 98.3 98.7 99.6 99.0 ELA 3 ELA 4 ELA 5 ELA 6 ELA 7 Math 3 Math 4 Math 5 Math 6 Math 7 Average pct rank 98.0 98.9 96.0 97.2 99.3 96.6 98.1 99.1 97.3 99.7 98.0 change 0.3 0.7 1.7 1.5 -0.2 3.3 1.6 -0.8 1.4 -0.1 1.0 pct rank 2012 Regents Assessment (2012 Cohort data) Westchester County Pocantico Hills CSD Briarcliff Manor UFSD Blind Brook-Rye UFSD Bronxville UFSD Chappaqua CSD Byram Hills CSD Edgemont UFSD Rye Neck UFSD Hastings-On-Hudson UFSD Scarsdale UFSD Rank 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Regents Assessment (2012 Cohort data) New York State Greenwood Lake UFSD Montauk UFSD Menands UFSD Springs UFSD Briarcliff Manor UFSD Blind Brook-Rye UFSD East Moriches UFSD Fishers Island UFSD Bronxville UFSD Byram Hills CSD Rank 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Regents Assessment (Special Education) New York State Blind Brook-Rye UFSD Jericho UFSD Briarcliff Manor UFSD Manhasset UFSD Holland CSD Cold Spring Harbor CSD Port Jefferson UFSD Tioga CSD Bronxville UFSD Locust Valley CSD Rank 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Questions & Answers
