    • 8. “Teach, Test, and Hope for the Best?” Discuss with a shoulder partner: How do teachers typically assess students’ understanding? Where does ongoing, formative assessment fit into this process? McTighe and Wiggins 2004
    • 9. Thinking Like an Assessor Question 1: What kind of evidence do we need? McTighe and Wiggins 2004
    • 10. Question 2: Does the proposed evidence enable us to infer a student’s knowledge, skill, or understanding? McTighe and Wiggins 2004
    • 11. Question 3: What specific characteristics in student responses, products, or performances should we examine? McTighe and Wiggins 2004
    • 12. ACTIVITY # 1
    • 13.  Choose a Virginia Beach Objective (VBO) from your content area.  What product or performance would you choose to assess the VBO?  What should the student work exhibit? Now, discuss with a shoulder partner: How would you utilize the student work to inform and modify your instruction?
    • 14.  Provides information to guide teaching and learning.  Includes formal and informal methods such as quizzes, oral questioning, observations and reviews of draft work.  Improves instructional methods and student feedback throughout the teaching and learning process.  Used to modify and validate instruction.

    • 19. “Suggestions for Bringing Student Work for Equity Conversations”  Teacher brings student work along with a “genuine inquiry” question related to equity. (Example: Is there evidence that the rigor I hoped for exists in this assignment?)  The teacher then reflects on answers and defines next steps. www.nsrfharmony.org
    • 20.  Feedback given (as part of formative assessment) helps learners become aware of gaps between their desired goals and their current knowledge, understanding, or skill.  Feedback leads students to the actions necessary to achieve their learning goals.  Formative assessment through self- evaluation helps students monitor their own growth. McTighe and Wiggins 2004
    • 21. ACTIVITY # 2
    • 22.  Think about a recent time when you praised a student.  Describe the student’s task and the praise you gave.  Analyze your recognition as effective or ineffective according to Robert Marzano’s “Guidelines for Effective and Ineffective Praise.” Marzano 2001
