# Index of Summative Tasks

Our summative tasks are divided into three classes - *Novice*, *Apprentice* and *Expert*. This is not a measurement of the difficulty of the content, but
indicates the extent to which they require students to autonomously apply their mathematical knowledge: *Novice* tasks explicitly test particular items of content knowledge, *Expert* tasks
are far less structured and require strategic problem-solving skills in addition to content knowledge. A “balanced diet” of Novice, Apprentice and Expert tasks is needed to properly assess the
Mathematical Practices.

Each task includes a scoring rubric, a set of pre-scored sample student work, and the same set of work without the scores. Scoring practice for this type of task can be an effective Professional Development activity.

A selection of test forms using these styles of task is also available.

## Choosing Tasks

There are several ways of navigating:

- Use the menu on the left to browse by grade and topic area, or search for a key phrase.
- Go to the Standards tab to find tasks linked to a particular content standard or practice.
- The complete set of tasks is listed below in alphabetic order.
