Students who "attend" in class should be able to understand and do three levels of tasks. The following are a sampling of the complexity of problems.

Levels of proficiency

How well do you know or "can do" the concept?

Below is a sample rubric based on Robert Marzano's work.
4.0 I know (can do) it well enough to make connections that weren't taught.
3.0 I know (can do) everything that was taught without making mistakes.
2.0 I know (can do) all the easy parts, but I don't know (can do) the harder parts.
1.0 With help, I know (can do) some of what was taught.

Type 2 items or tasks addressing:

basic details and mathematical procedures that are relatively easy

Vocabulary such as:
ratio
rate
unit rate

Problems such as

Type 3 items or tasks addressing:

more complex ideas and procedures
Draw a tape diagram to answer the following: Jonah had 50 m&m's in a bag and gave 60% away.
How many pieces of candy did he give away?




Type 4 items or tasks addressing:

inferences and applications that go beyond what was taught in class.

stickers to Susan, Susan had 9 more stickers than Anna. How many stickers did Anna have at first?
