I am a 5th grade math teacher and a parent of a 1st grader and I really like this resource as it provides assessment items that can be used within a vertical alignment planning session with 1st grade teachers. It is specific, measurable with clear directions and easy to find materials. Quick data collection resource that can be used to provide specific feedback to students.
Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards.
The learning objectives are specific, measurable and achievable through completion of this resource.
This resource has specific and enough assessment strategies that can determine whether students are mastering this concept based on the work they create.
This resource is aligned with the standards for this grade level.
This resource is geared towards keeping student engaged in the activity.
Opportunities: This resource can integrate the use of interactive technology that can give students immediate feedback on their progress. In addition, teacher can provide students with a variety of prompts that they can use as guides along with their prior knowledge about number sense.

* I enjoy how this formative assessment has a distinct and clear rubric to follow. As a former second grade teacher I understand the importance of the learning target: I can determine if a number is odd or even.
* Full alignment to depth and breadth of standard 2.OA.3. This formative assessment focuses on vocabulary and demonstration of even and odd numbers. Students must solve an open ended problem to determine whether a number is even or odd. Determine whether a group of objects, within 20, has an odd or even number of members by: Pairing objects, then counting them by 2s; Determining whether objects can be placed into two equal groups; Writing an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
*This assessment has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource. The rubric is designed efficiently to do this
*The rubric has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard. Students can make equal groups to demonstrate whether a number is even or odd
* A strength in this formative assessment is that students have to create their visual and explain their work. There is no opportunity for students to guess and to do mental math. When students can create their work and explain it in their own words they have proven mastery.
* A suggestion would be to give students a prompt with a single digit number and a double digit number. I would recommend this because understanding place value has been a weakness. If students know that a certain digit in the ones can determine if a number is even or odd they should be able to recognize that a single digit number only has value in the ones place. From my experience students coming from second into third grade have struggled with applying place value because it is an abstract concept. It is hard to imagine breaking down a ten and a hundred block when adding and subtracting. I feel that even and odd is a stronger concept for most students to grasp. If we could make the connection back to place value that may build more connections in other mathematical standards across grade levels.
