PERFORMANCE LEVEL DESCRIPTORS IN MATH

http://www.parcconline.org/math-plds

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and
Careers (PARCC) on Wednesday released its final grade- and
subject-specific performance level descriptors (PLDs) in
mathematics. Download them by grade level or course, along with
a narrated PowerPoint presentation that explains
their structure.

Performance levels, sometimes referred to as "achievement
levels," are the broad categories used to report student
performance on an assessment. The PLDs take the form of rubrics
that detail how students progress through different levels of
command in their learning of major math concepts, from partial
to moderate to strong to distinguished.

ALL-STAR HOME RUN DERBY INFOGRAPHIC

http://infogr.am/THE-UBERFAN-2013-MLB-HOME-RUN-DERBY-INTERACTIVE-PREVIEW

A slick interactive infographic of the Major League Baseball
(MLB) All-Star Home Run Derby came out just in time for
Monday's power-hitting display.

Scroll below the countdown timer to compare each
derby slugger's

- home runs by month
- proportion of hits as home runs (this season and career)
- home run distances
- home run heights
- home run ball speed off bat
- home vs away home runs
- home run distribution to left, center, and right fields

First featured in these pages three years ago as "the fan's
electronic baseball card," Uberfan now strives to build "the
visual wikipedia of baseball" from every seat and
ballpark -- one play at a time. Download their new Ubercam app
to capture baseball moments in real time for Uberfan to
auto-tag to plays and statistics:
