Common Core Math Assessments. You asked, I listened!

My best selling items on TpT are my CCSS Assessment Packs. Not to toot my own horn, but the feedback I get on those packs always humbles me - in a big way.
Mixed in with all that yummy feedback, I've gotten some questions and suggestions. A couple of people mentioned that they weren't sure of the purpose of the posters for each standard.  A few of you even suggested that they'd appreciate them more if they were in kid-friendly language. Guess what? I totally agree! Here's the first of the major updates I made:

The other thing that many people asked for was a second test for each standard so they have a pre- and post-test. Well, I did ya one better. The pack now includes THREE assessments for each standard! Now you can  have a pre-, post- and extra practice page. I also made a few minor adjustments to some of the original assessments. Just little things I noticed could be a bit better after using them with my own class.
Another tweak I made was in the checklist. Originally, the checklist spanned two pages. I also noticed that when I punched holes to add it to my planbook, I was cutting into the standards. So I shrunk it down, fit it on one page and moved it over. I print one page for each kid and just jot down the date in the box. I also keep all the assessments in the same binder to have some proof. You know how that is these days with RtI and such...
And just as before, the new assessments all have answer keys. 
I like when the answer key matches the page, so that's what I did with these.
So, what does this mean for you? Well, if you already purchased the original pack for $8 which you can see here, you will be getting all of these upgrades for FREE once I upload the new version. All you'll have to do is go into the "My Purchases" tab and download the revised copy after Sunday.

If you have not yet purchased it, I'm going to give you some time to get it at the $8 price as well. Once I list the new version, I'll be raising the price to $12.50 to reflect the revised content and additional assessments. However, I won't be doing that until late Sunday night. That means you can buy it now at the original price and then download the new version after Sunday which is chock full of new content!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I thought this was a perfect post to link up to this new linky! Stop by and see what else is new!

  2. Thanks Denise! I have both of your CCSS packs and they are exceptional as is...now they're even better! I especially appreciate the extra assessments for each standard. My school has started the data team process, focusing on math, and these extra assessments are just what we need! Love the student posters, too. Looking forward to these updates later this wkd!

  4. I didn't realize that you had a 3rd grade version! I also was hesitant to buy any packs that had only one assessment per standard because I really like to re-test my kids, so I love that with these I'd have the option of a pretest, posttest, AND a retest!

    I don't know for sure yet which grade level I'll be teaching next year, but that's my only reservation. I LOVE the throughness of your products (and I know from helping you proofread that you really want to make sure they are done well). Thanks for posting about this- even without assurance of a 3rd grade position next year, I'm debating a purchase because they look that darn great!
