Summary

Multiple-choice testing is an educational reality. Rather than complain about the negative impact these tests may have on teaching and learning, why not use them to better understand your students#x19; true mathematical knowledge and comprehension? Maryann Wickett and Eunice Hendrix-Martin show teachers how to move beyond the student#x19;s answer-right or wrong-to uncover understanding and/or misconceptions. By asking a few simple follow-up questions, teachers can learn a great deal about student understanding and make better, more informed instructional decisions. The Beyond the Bubblebooks (grades 2-3 and grades 4-5) are each divided into five strands-number, measurement, algebra, geometry, and probability-with six problems per strand. Each problem includes an overview of the objective of the test question, a sample question, typical of those found on standardized tests, strategies students employ to solve the problem, conversation starters, student work, student-teacher conversations, and instructional strategies to advance student learning. Teachers will also find suggestions for differentiation, reproducible of sample questions, and a comprehensive list of additional resources. With dozens of sample test questions and numerous student samples , Beyond the Bubbleshows educators how to use multiple choice tests to provide more purposeful, focused mathematics instruction for all of their students.
