portfolios post

- goals, requirements, scores, progress, charts, reflection, assessment - objective, subjective
- personal learning network - resources - videos, explanations, examples, self quizzes

For current grade level, testing, scores, areas of weakness

- step back, work on supporting material from "prior knowledge" for weak area

Learning paths

- series of "linked" tasks
- self-directed, goal, requirement
- ? IXL - games, videos, related resources
- extra credit for recommending new resources

baseline

- student identifies areas of weakness - hard, don't understand, love, easy, share resourcess "I learned from that"
- based on testing, assessment, teacher evaluations, observation

progress

- accomplishments - completed, testing, assessment
- interests - discovery, quest, peer teaching, math in everyday / games / sports / food

- Coherence Map shows the connections between Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.

- Volusia Math curriculum map

Motivation

- assess current level ? like reading
- students know where the stand - easy access to math profile, guided next-steps

goals, expectations - more than just assignments, do this

motivation

- extrinsic - rewards, recognition
- intrinsic - self-directed, goals, interests, curiosity, needs / wants
- usefulness ? what's in this for me

generate interest, engagement

- kahoot > ?

try this

- survey / assess - broad spectrum - weakness, strengths in math background
- challenges
- self-directed
- games, puzzles
