Here's the original image from Smarter Balanced Assessment Corporation:
And here is the Education Week adaptation of the original:
Presumably at least two people vetted this image: the person who created it and the editor who signed off on it.
Apparently neither one noticed that Figures A and C changed significantly from the first version to the second.
In the Smarter Balanced Assessment Corporation image, only Figure B. represents 2/5.
In the Ed Week image, A, B, and C all represent 2/5. (At least, Figure A. now looks as if it does to me.) As a result, the question Which model best represents 2/5? has become nonsensical.
I'm guessing this is a case of humanities-trained people -- people who 'don't use math' in real life -- knowing so little about fractions that they didn't 'see' the difference between the original image and the adaptation.
