IMPs assessments focus on assessing coherent units with a balance of problem types and SBAC claims. Exams are aligned to specific standards and match the rigor and style of SBAC with the use of paper and pencil, as opposed to computers. Exams include “mastery” sections in which major topics continue to be spiraled for students to demonstrate mastery over time. Each exam includes a scoring rubric and scoring guide, based upon SBAC category cut-offs. As the exams are not textbook specific, they help teachers gather authentic formative assessment.
