8Reflections on the Big Picture
 What did you learn from this process?
 How could having the big picture at your
fingertips impact instruction in your classes?  How would you compare your feelings at the
beginning of the activity and when you  had completed your big picture?
 Could this process benefit others in your school?
9Activity 2With a Focus on Comprehensionof the
Question Stemand then the Correct Response,
lets examine theof Multiple Guess
Assessment.
Fear Factors
10What provides the stimulus for this activity?
 Janies personal use of these strategies in her
classroom.  The success of other math teachers with these
strategies.  The need for our students to be taught to
successfully demonstrate their learning on
standardized tests.
11First, lets examine some assumptions that
teachers can make
 That students know vocabulary in context and
assessment vocabulary.  That students comprehend what the problem is
asking and know how to paraphrase what it
requires students to do.  That students can provide the mathematical
reasoning and calculation to prove the answer
is correct.
12Student inquiries tell us what the Fear Factors
are
 What does this word mean?
 What is this problem asking?
 What do I have to do to solve it?
 How do I solve it?
 What should my answer be?
 How can I tell if my answer is correct?
13Fear Factor 1Vocabulary
 Students must have the opportunity to identify
unfamiliar vocabulary in the context of the
question.  How do teachers and students address this
factor?
14Lets examine
 In your packet, take five minutes to read the
question stems on p. 1 entitled Question Stems
for Unfamiliar Words.  As you read, circle any words which you think
might be unfamiliar to the average student.
15Did you circle any of these terms?
Question Stems Questions for Unfamiliar Words
in Math Which expression is equivalent
to What is this distance expressed in scientific
notation What is the approximate measure of
angle JKM If he separates the land into two
congruent triangles, what will be the area of

feet. About how much fencing will be needed to
go around the outer edge of the garden? What is

intersection between an equilateral triangle and
a circle in the same plane? Which set of
coordinates results from a translation of figure

fluctuated between 7 degrees and 2 degrees.
What was the temperature range? A copy machine

18If so, what strategy?
 Assist students with the use of a visual
(Bridge Map) with the relating factor  is defined as.

 This visual is particularly helpful for the
reoccurring words in question stems and is a
concise way to study vocabulary.

20According to Marzano..
 one of the best retention strategies for
helping students retain unfamiliar vocabulary
words is the use of an illustration therefore,
allow students the opportunity to add an
illustration to the Bridge Map.

Items by Thinking Skills.  Circle the words or phrases that indicate these
thought processes.  How do students know that these questions are
addressing the same thought processes without
familiarizing them with the synonyms?
53 Strategy
 Familiarize the students with the synonyms and
sample question stems to help them understand and
identify these frequently assessed thought
processes.  Strategy
 Use visuals to assist students in seeing the
thought process. Spend time analyzing the stems
for the same thought process stated in various
ways.

69Fear Factor 3Comprehension and Analysisof the
question stem
 Students must have the opportunity to paraphrase
the question stem and analyze the problem in
order to comprehend what the question is really
asking.  How can teachers and students address this factor?
70Lucy Calkins in A Teachers Guide to Standardized
Tests states
 Sam was falling into a typical trap set by test
makers. He was not comprehending what the
question was asking(p. 117)  Lets look at some examples of misinterpreted
questions from her text
71The students Comprehension of the Questions
 Original Question How could the report be done
to produce a representative sample of 100
students?  We need to find student representatives.
 We need to find the product.
 We need to randomly choose students.
 We need to word process the report.
 Which paraphrase demonstrates the true
comprehension of the question?
72Original QuestionHow many tickets must the
drama club sell to make a profit?
 Students paraphrased responses
 We need the total number sold.
 We need to divide 500 by 10.
 We need the amount collected minus how much they
had to spend.  We need to divide 500 by 11.
 We need to have 500 be greater than the amount
we charge per ticket minus the cost for printing
the ticket.  Which paraphrase demonstrates the true
comprehension of the question?  Original Question What effect will this change
have on the volume of the container?  Students paraphrased responses
 We need to determine the new volume.
 We need to subtract the new volume from the
old volume.  We need to compare the original and new
volume and define the change that happened. 
 Which paraphrase demonstrates the
truecomprehension of the question? 
73Lets examine!
 In your packet, take two minutes to read the
question stems entitled Question Stems to
Paraphrase.  In the space beneath the question, paraphrase two
of the questions by interpreting what the
question is asking.  Discuss how your students might incorrectly
paraphrase  Share with a colleague. Then we will share
orally.
page 15
74Question Stems to Paraphrase
 Which of the following best describes the
behavior of a students GPA as the number of
clubs he/she joins increases?  The student body has 700 members. The school
board predicts that student membership will
increase by 15 each year. What is the expected
membership after three years?  In 1995, 9 of adults used a computer to access
the internet. In 2005, this percentage had
jumped to 74. This is an increase of 65
percentage points. What is the percent of
increase over the 10 year period?  An aerial photograph is taken of a school with a
scale of 1 inch14 yards. The sidewalk to the
football field is 84 yards long. How long is the
sidewalk in the picture?  Paul and Sam are sitting at the top of a ferris
wheel that is exactly 50 feet above the ground.
How far will Paul and Sam travel around before
they reach the top position again?
75How do students know what paraphrasing a question
means?
 Strategy Familiarize students with the
definition and practice of paraphrase (to
restate or interpret).  Model this process numerous times for the
students.  Have students practice by providing them with
numerous opportunities to paraphrase both orally
and in writing.
76What does Calkins say about their strategies to
address paraphrasing and these misinterpretations?
 She states
 Together, we looked at the questions and their
paraphrased counterparts. The kids were
surprised when they realized how different some
interpretations of the questions were from the
questions themselves. With partners, they
discussed which interpretations would help them
and which would lead them astray.
77Over the next few days, doing this together as a
class, in partners, and individually, the kids
became much more adept at understanding what a
question required them to do(what the question
was asking). No longer, we hoped, would they be
seduced by the answer that matched part of the
problem if that wasnt what the question called
for. (p. 118)
78Questioning can help students comprehend
analyze the problems or question stems
 What do I see?
 What am I given?
 What information will I need?
 What triggers are provided?
 What should I think about?
 What do I really have to do?
 What given information will help me?
 How do I complete what I have to do?
79Cheat Sheets for Test Prep
 May help students visualize the problem.
 May help students focus their efforts
appropriately.  May provide insight for critical information.
 May provide direction as they proceed in solving
the problem or answering the question.
80Students love the idea of a cheat sheet!!!
R.F. When you encounter a problem involving ___
think about or use ____.
Continue to develop as an ongoing project.
Include it as a cornerstone in the students EOG
