With all the efforts teachers have made to prepare students for the ILEARN Assessment, scores, especially math scores, declined. By correlating the ILEARN Assessment Blueprint with the Indiana Mathematics Standards and identifying the Power Standards to focus on in your classroom, we will begin to address this issue. Teachers will start to formulate a plan to use these resources to direct their classroom instruction to maximize students’ achievement on the math portion of the ILEARN Assessment. The types of questions used on the ILEARN Assessment will be discussed and shown. Best mathematical practices to increase student performance for those questions will be demonstrated. Resources, activities, and ideas for increasing student performance will be discussed.
