Ann Trescott

Outreach Coordinator / Workgroup Member MDTP

Veteran Secondary Math Teacher/ Teacher Coach

Workshop Goals:

Session #1:

Discuss the nature of readiness versus placement exams and the participation of the Mathematics Diagnostic Testing Project (MDTP) in creating mathematics placement tests that are aligned to the California common core standards

Explore the importance of developing balanced measures for placement and provide guidelines for designing equitable placement policies

Investigate and determine the connection between a California common core standard and the aligned MDTP topic

Session #2:

Engage in data-driven drill-down techniques to identify student mathematics strengths, common student errors and misconceptions, and unfinished learning

Brainstorm strategies to address errors and misconceptions and bridge gaps of understanding

Explore ways to bring students into analyzing errors and monitoring their progress on gap closures

Explore uses of data from MDTP Written Response Items to promote the development of conceptual understanding, extend standards across domains, and explore strategies for using the WRI’s in the common core curriculum


Parking will be provided, along with dinner and an opportunity to ask questions about any of the items covered in the sessions.

The purpose of MDTP is to promote and support student readiness and success in college mathematics courses. MDTP achieves its purpose by developing diagnostics readiness tests aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and supplying these diagnostic tools to secondary schools in California free of charge.
