6.4.2.1. Constituency Group

6.4.2.1.1. School, Teacher

6.4.2.2. Teachers use the assessments to reflect on practice as well as inform their RTI/MTSS meetings. Since the program is prescriptive, I have not seen them do much changing of lessons to respond to these results.

6.5. Frequency/Format

6.5.1. Formative: Daily , Summative: End of each unit

6.6. Roadmap to Instruction

6.6.1. Analysis

6.6.1.1. Eureka math uses exit tickets primarily for formative assessment during units. This is one of the strategies that Bambrick-Santoyo says leads to increased rigor in lessons as well as increased student engagement if the results are shared and reflected on. The summative assessments are useful for achievement data and unit reflection.

6.6.2. How it is Used

6.6.2.1. In my observation, the formative and summative assessments are currently only used to inform teachers of achievement and RTI/MTSS process data. Because the program is prescriptive in nature, I do not see the results of the data informing instruction or differentiation currently. This could also be because teachers are in the management stage of concern and the mechanical/routine level of use in the CBAM model.
