So I’m taking Dy/Dan’s lead and incorporate skill/concept based testing. I am excited about this because it gives me the opportunity to be more specific and descriptive in my formal assessments. I’m teaching Algebra 2 and Geometry, so of course I had to use the state skills (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills). Here are my lists.

I incorporated the use of Weights to let the students know how much each skill will contribute to their grades.

I want to note that there are actually 145 TEKS for Algebra 2, but I condensed it down to 45.

For Geometry there are 104 and I condensed the TEKS down to 35.
