      • To compare achievement levels within and across schools, school systems, districts and states
      • To evaluate student knowledge and skill
    • 3. Barriers to Accurate Assessment
      • Individual learning differences
      • Media constraints
      • Lack of appropriate supports
      • Lack of integration with curriculum
    • 4. Individual learning differences
      • Individual differences in content recognition
      • Individual differences in strategic expression
      • Individual differences in engagement
    • 5. Media constraints
      • Considering the type of skill or knowledge being measured and the medium in which it is being assessed
      • Crossing media lines to gain a richer understanding of what students know
    • 6. Lack of appropriate supports
      • Focus on the goal of the assessment
      • Don’t remove daily supports during an assessment
    • 7. Lack of integration with curriculum
      • Most traditional assessments are detached from instruction and practice
      • We need to examine the interaction between student and curriculum over time
      • Observe and talk to students
      • Ongoing assessment allows us to measure the evolution of the learning
    • 8. Increasing Assessment Accuracy and Accessibility
      • Flexibility in presentation
      • Flexibility in expression and strategic supports
      • Flexibility in engagement
    • 9. Flexibility in presentation
      • Varied media
      • Different Supports
        • links to background info / vocabulary
        • Concept map
        • Key points
        • Diagram
    • 10. Flexibility in expression and strategic supports
      • Technology tools make it easier for the teacher to provide multiple options
      • Teachers can combine a variety of tools to track learner progress
    • 11. Flexibility in engagement
      • Include embedded assessment
      • Ensure that every student is working at a comfortable and appropriate stage of difficulty
      • Vary the content
    • 12. Motivation
