Illinois Learning Standards
Stage E - Mathematics
Mathematics Classroom Assessments Aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards
The assessments are coded according to learning standard and stage. Example: 6A.E is aligned to standard 6A, stage E (fifth grade). Sample student work, when available, will follow the assessment.
Determine and compare estimates, actual counts, the minimum values, maximum values, ranges, modes, medians, means, ratios and percents of M&Ms in an individual bag and in all students bags.
Determine prime and composite numbers from one to 100 and arrange a composite numbers factors in a rainbow pattern.
Make estimates about the weight, cost, height, circumference, diameter, and length of a Hersheys kiss and the shape, perimeter and area of its wrapper and compare the estimates to actual measurements.
Measure and compute the actual measurements of the room using a scale drawing and determine the perimeter and area of this irregular shape.
Describe the pattern of change in the perimeters of chains of regular polygons using a table and a variable expression.
Create and solve linear equations with variables using manipulatives.
Create riddles that include clues to the attributes and/or properties of geometric shapes.
Use a mat plan and snap cubes to make a three-dimensional building and match it to a two-dimensional drawings of the buildings.
Use all twelve of the pentomino shapes to make a conjecture about which of the shapes will fold into a box without a top or lid, write a logical argument to justify each choice, test conjectures by cutting the shapes out and folding them into boxes.

Make predictions about what the mediumest student in their grade level would be like, design a questionnaire to collect data, compile and display data, use conclusions drawn from the data to justify their description of the mediumest student.
Determine how many red and yellow links are in a bag based on data collected from three trials of ten draws each where one link is drawn from a bag at a time and replaced.
