Flexible Grouping and Differentiation

100%, 100%, 100%. You are probably familiar with those kids who can knock perfect scores out week after week. You’ve probably also questioned what good you’re doing for those students.
They Already Know It? Then Why Teach It?

If a student can score above 90% on material that you have not instructed, it’s fair to say that they do not need your instruction! Instead, differentiate for these students by offering advanced content or increase thinking skill requirements.

Why Pre-Assess?
  • Students who already know material are allowed to work on challenging, independent projects.
  • On-level students receive instruction in a smaller group.
  • Everyone works at their level, reducing behavior problems and boredom while increasing learning.
Three Groups
  • Group 1: Took a pre-assessment and passed with over 90%. Size: usually one to three students.
  • Group 2: Took the pre-assessment and scored between 80-89%. Size: usually up to five students.
  • Group 3: Either did not take the pre-assessment or scored below 80%. Size: the bulk of the class.

Hint: Use as much of the base program as possible. Our math program comes with both free response and multiple choice versions of the assessments. The free response could be the pre-test.

Group 1
  • Students choose whether they will take the pre-assessment (if they aren’t motivated enough to do this, they won’t be motivated enough to complete an independent project).
  • Must achieve 90% or higher (this usually means they can miss up to two problems)
  • Students must use the open response test, not multiple choice (they’re too good at guessing when there are choices).
  • Students must complete an independent project of high quality (or forfeit the privileged to pretest for the next two chapters).

Group 2
This group contains the students who always try the pre-test and never quite make it. They’re constantly in the B range. I feel like this is still pretty impressive, so I created a third group. This group completes the daily work, but is free to begin the work while I am teaching.
  • Must achieve between 80%-89% on the open ended pre-assessment.
  • Must complete daily homework and quizzes.
  • May begin homework during lesson, not required to be present for my instruction.
  • Must retake the chapter’s test.
  • Since these students usually finish their work early, they work on an extension menu related to the unit.

A great resoucre for adaptive and differentiated instruction in math!
You are able to set goals up to eight grade for subject content areas for all students no matter what their baseline was on MobyMax. This might help advanced stduents to meet their projected growth goals set by NWEA MAP.
(Thank you Rebecca Daugherty and Lorie Glackman!)
Math Enrichment and Problem-Solving(Recommended for Grades 4 and 5)These activities reinforce basic skills in fun and interesting ways. Most require some logic or critical thinking. They can be used as supplemental materials with an entire class, with highly capable students, at a math center, or as homework.
