- Interprets brief text and common symbols
- Locates specific details in simple documents, such as labels and signs
- Identifies how lists are organized (e.g. sequential, chronological, alphabetical)
- Requires support to identify sources and to evaluate and integrate information

**Task Descriptors**

- Scope of task is limited
- Involves one document
- Contains brief text, symbols, or both
- Uses a very simple format
- Contains common, familiar vocabulary
- Has a familiar context
- Addresses concrete, day-to-day topics

### C3. Use measures

Competency C: **Understand and Use Numbers**

Task Group C3: **Use measures**

Level: **2**

At this level, learners: **Use measures to make one-step calculations**

**Performance Descriptors**

The learner:

- Calculates using numbers expressed as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, and integers
- Calculates angles in simple, common shapes
- Makes estimates
- Understands and uses ratio and proportion
- Interprets and represents area and volume using symbols and abbreviations (e.g. m3 )
- Interprets and applies rates (e.g. km/hr, km/l) and ratios (e.g. map scales)
- Converts units of measurement within the same system and between systems
- Understands and uses formulas for finding the perimeter, area, and volume of simple, common shapes
- Chooses and performs required operation(s); may make inferences to identify required operation(s)
- Selects appropriate steps to solutions
- Interprets, represents, and converts measures using whole numbers, decimals, percentages, ratios, and simple, common fractions (e.g. ½, ¼)
- Uses strategies to check accuracy (e.g. estimating, using a calculator, repeating a calculation, using the reverse operation)

**Task Descriptors**

- Scope of task is clearly defined
- May include unfamiliar elements (e.g. context, content)
- Requires the use of rates or common formulas
- Requires one-step calculations, which may be repeated; operations are easily inferred
- May be completed in more than one way
- May involve one document, such as a simple conversion table
- May require converting between whole numbers, decimals, fractions, ratios, and percentages

**Task Descriptors**

- Scope of task is clearly defined
- May include unfamiliar elements (e.g. context, content)
- Requires the use of rates, or requires two or more operations, where operations are easily inferred
- Requires up to a few steps to complete
- May be completed in more than one way
- May involve one document (e.g. simple table, simple bar graph)
- May require calculating percentages
- May require converting between whole numbers, decimals, fractions, ratios, and percentages
