The New York State Math Assessment is administered to students in seventh grade every spring. The seventh grade math teachers from Woodland Middle School worked collaboratively to realign the new seventh grade Core Curriculum Math Standards. The teachers thoroughly analyzed the Core Curriculum Math Standards and discussed the important sequential concept and skill progression that needed to be addressed for the 2012 - 2013 school year. The new in class math assessments were created to allow rigorous multi-step real world application in a developmentally age appropriate timeline. In addition, the assessments provide spiraled questions which reflect the new common core standards presented in the Glencoe Course Two series. The use of the shared assessments between the two middle schools within the district will help provide consistent instruction and evaluation. In addition the use of shared assessments will help indicate necessary interventions.

Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1—100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1—100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1—100 is prime or composite.

Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.

Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and describe the difference.

Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.

Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
