  • 3. Assessment OF LearningPurpose: to measure, to sortAudience: those outside the classForm: marks, rank orders, #Timing: at the end, summative
  • 4. Assessment FOR LearningPurpose: inform learningAudience: teacher and studentForm: descriptive feedbackTiming: on-going, throughout the learning
  • 5. The Six Big AFL Strategies1.  Learning intentions2.  Criteria3.  Descriptive feedback4.  Questions5.  Self and peer assessment6.  OwnershipHow can I adapt this to my context?
  • 6. Descriptive Feedback•  What’s working?•  What’s not?•  What’s next?
  • 7. Model Guided practice Independent practice Independent application  Pearson  &  Gallagher  (1983)  
  • 8. Formative assessmentto determine students strengths and needs Brownlie, Feniak & Schnellert, 2006; Earl & Katz, 2005; Schnellert, Butler & Higginson, in press; Smith & Wilhelm, 2006
  • 9. Learning IntentionsJoni  Tsui  and  Alissa  Sarte,  Port  Moody  Secondary  Teacher  and  Department  Head  
  • 10. •  At  the  beginning  of  each  class  we  write  the   learning  intenGons  for  the  day  on  the  board   –  e.g.      By  the  end  of  class  today  you  will  be  able  to:    1.    Define  the  term  ionic  compound.          2.    Determine  the  chemical  formulae  for                   ionic  compounds.        3.    Name  ionic  compounds.  
  • 11. •  Have  students  write  the  learning  intenGons   down  in  a  journal.  •  During  class,  we  refer  to  the  intenGons  as  we   progress  through  the  lesson  and  point  out   when  we  have  hit  each  outcome.  •  Refer  to  them  again  at  the  end  of  class  and   occasionally  stop  and  do  a  quick  check  for   understanding.  
  • 12. •  Student  feedback:   – They  like  to  know  why  we  are  doing  certain   acGviGes   – They  look  back  at  the  learning  intenGons   when  doing  review.   – If  I  forget  to  write  them  down,  they  tell  me   right  away!    It  has  become  the  starGng   paUern  for  my  classes.  
  • 13. •  What  we  found:   –  Students  had  a  focus  for  the  lessons.    They  would   oWen  interrupt  me  to  say  “so  that’s  the  second   learning  intenGon,  right?”   –  They  didn’t  quesGon  “why  are  we  doing  this?”   because  I  told  them  right  from  the  start.   –  When  we  reminded  the  kids  at  the  end  of  class  that   these  were  the  things  that  they  should  now  know,  we   had  an  increase  in  students  asking  for  clarificaGon  or   coming  in  for  help.    Students  became  beUer  at  the   metacogniGon  of  understanding  whether  or  not  they   had  learned  things.  
  • 14. Coloured Cubes, Coloured Highlighters   Aliisa and Joni•  During  lecture,  lab  or  assignment  •  3  coloured  cubes:       –  Red  –  don’t  get  it   –  Yellow  –  bit  confused   –  Green  –  making  sense   –  Used  with  AP  Biology  12,  science  10,  Biology  11  
  • 15. •  Highlight  your  notes  with  the  3  colours  –  helps   you  find  what  you  need  to  focus  on  •  Code  your  own  quizzes  with  coloured  pencils,   before  handing  in  •  Consider  your  errors  –  how  many  were   careless?
