Assessing Students' Learning


What Did You Learn?
As the session began you developed a concept chart that defined learning objectives and listed strategies you use to assess students' knowledge about a particular unit. Now complete a new Final Concept Chart (PDF) that includes all the assessment strategies you have studied. Classify each as formal, informal, ongoing, and/or culminating; then choose the strategies that you plan to use.

Once you have finished your new concept chart, revisit your initial concept chart to see how your knowledge of assessment has expanded.

Now, write a brief Summary (PDF). Describe three of the assessment strategies you now plan to use. Explain how you plan to use them and how they relate to your assessment goals, illustrate good practice, and extend your thinking about assessment.


Save your written work to submit as an assignment.
