Transcript

  • 1. Soar with the Common Core Creating Successful Learners and Teachers Through Assessment Presented by Melissa S. Houck
  • 2. Before the Core Rights were purchased for the use of this cartoon through caglecartoons.com
  • 3.
    • In an attempt to prepare students for college or a career, as well as “fly higher” than our international competition, we must rethink how we assess our students.
    • We must align our curriculum to the Common Core Learning Standards.
    • We must evaluate the progress of reaching these standards by creating rigorous forms of summative and formative assessments.
    • We must use the assessment and data from the assessments to continue to plan instruction.
    So How Can We Help Students Soar?
  • 4.
    • -Assessments that are given periodically to gauge how well students are achieving Common Core Learning Standards.
    • -Tells districts and teachers what students have learned over a period of time and measures the effectiveness of school programs.
    • -Data from these assessments can be used to drive curriculum to meet Common Core Learning Standards.
    • -Becomes an indicator of student performance in future assessments.
    Summative Assessment
  • 5.
    • What are some examples of summative assessments?
  • 6.
    • -Frequent classroom level assessment to adjust teaching strategies and evaluate student progression towards the standards.
    • -Allows for students to practice and be involved.
    • -Most formative assessment is informal with prompt and constructive feedback.
    Formative Assessment
  • 7.
    • -With a partner next to you, please share a type of formative assessment you have used or have observed in a classroom environment.
    • -How did you use this assessment to improve teaching and learning?
    Share and Compare
  • 8.
    • Even though we have shared many ideas, here are a few more we may have missed:
    • The most important of all formative assessment is DETAILED FEEDBACK.
    • CONCEPT MAPS
    • PEER/SELF REVIEW
    • PORTFOLIOS
    • RUBRICS
    • GOAL SETTING/ CRITERIA
    • QUESTIONING STRATEGIES
    • OBSERVATIONS
    • DISCUSSION
    More On Formative Assessment
  • 9.
    • In your opinion, which assessment has the greatest impact on teaching and learning? Please explain.
  • 10.
    • Show growth in students’ work
    • Align to the Common Core
    • Promote creative, and independent thinkers and problem solvers
    • Give insights to progress toward our target goals
    • Enable students to manage their own learning
    • Help determine student grades
    • Better communicate with parents and teachers across curriculum
    • Provide information to improve instruction
    • Provide a benchmark for students and teachers toward achieving excellence
    • Help us evaluate our school programs and their effectiveness
    • Provide variety in assessment to enable students to show what they know and can do in a variety of ways
    Overall, Good Assessment Will…
  • 11.
    • Create assessment before unit design.
    • Look at already created assessments and determine what can be used, what should be changed.
    • Assessment should align to Common Core.
    • Questions on assessment should be scaffolded to determine gaps in learning.
    • Questions should be rigorous.
    Assessment and Unit Design
  • 12.
    • Both formative and summative assessments are crucial in a balanced curriculum.
    • We cannot rely heavily on one or the other, each is a “wing” of the educator and school systems. Rely too heavily on one, and the bird will dive, but in balance, it will soar with ease.
    • Assessment and analysis of that assessment should help our instruction soar.
