Formative vs. Summative Assessments › Read article on use of formative and summative assessments in the classroom (Garrison & Ehringhaus, 2007): http://ccti.colfinder.org/sites/default/files/guyana/res ources/TL/TL%20M02U03%20docs/Formative%20an d%20Summative%20Assessment%20in%20the%20C lassroom.pdf Formative Assessment › Read article on formative assessment (Boston, 2002): http://www.vtaide.com/png/ERIC/Formative- Assessment.htm
After reading the 2 articles, develop a Venn Diagram comparing/contrasting the 2 types of assessment. Generate lists of possible formative and summative assessments that can be used within your content area. › Keep the list out—will be updating as we learn more about assessments
An assessment plan should have a variety of assessment measures to reach all learning styles. › Meeting the multiple learning styles of your students requires the use of multiple assessment types. Review the following links at the Teacher Vision site: Categories of Evaluation, Alternative Assessment, Creating Meaningful Performance Assessments and Using Multiple Intelligences in Testing and Assessment. http://www.teachervision.fen.com/assessment/resource/5815. html
Review the extensive list of possible assessment strategies at the Alaska Department of Education website: http://www.eed.state.ak.us/tls/framewor ks/mathsci/ms5_2as1.htm › Revisit your draft of formative and summative assessments. Update this list to include ideas generated from the websites on the previous 2 slides.
Many assessments will require rubrics in order to standardize scoring and to provide students with advance knowledge of requirements. › Read article by Moskal (2000) on scoring rubrics: http://www.peopledev.co.za/library/Scoring %20rubrics%20-%20Moskal%20B.pdf › Devise a rubric for one of the assessments in your plan.
You must meet the needs of your learners with special needs (IDEA, 504, RTI) through accommodations. › Review the information regarding assessment accommodations: http://www.teachervision.fen.com/teaching- methods/educational- testing/4170.html?detoured=1 › On the assessment list you have developed, identify 2 ways you can make accommodations on at least 2 of the measures.
For the integrity of the online (or any) course, assessment measures must be reliable and valid to determine whether or not students have met learning goals. › Find one scholarly article from a peer- reviewed journal on assessment reliability and validity. › Write a discussion board post summarizing the highlights of the article. › Revisit your assessment list to determine whether or not the assessments are reliable and valid.
Review the assessment plan you drafted throughout this module. › Ensure all guidelines are considered in the development of your final plan. › Have you considered all components? Formative and summative Differentiation Learning styles Learner accommodations Rubrics for performance based Validity and reliability
