Tools for formative and summative assessment that make knowledge and reasoning visible, and help teachers to guide students in how to improve, and monitor their progress. These tools comprise:
* Lesson Units for Formative Assessment: some focused on math concepts, others on non-routine problem solving – 20 per grade for Grades 7-12.
* Professional Development Modules: to help teachers with the new pedagogical challenges that formative assessment presents.
* Summative Assessment Task Collection: to illustrate the range of performance goals required by CCSS.
* Prototype Summative Tests: designed to help teachers and students monitor their progress, these tests provide a model for examinations that may replace or complement current US tests."
