Assessment Of Student Learning2015

  1. 1. HOW TO ASSESS STUDENT PROJECTS
  2. 2. Key Points <ul><li>Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple methods </li></ul><ul><li>Criteria and standards </li></ul><ul><li>Evidence </li></ul><ul><li>Students know, can do and understand </li></ul><ul><li>It’s more than just collecting data </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is Student Assessment for? <ul><li>To provide feedback, guidance, and mentoring to students so as to help them better plan and execute their educational programs. </li></ul><ul><li>To provide improved feedback about student learning to support faculty in their work. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Functions of Assessment <ul><li>Diagnostic: tell us what the student needs to learn </li></ul><ul><li>Formative: tell us how well the student is doing as work progresses </li></ul><ul><li>Summative: tell us how well the student did at the end of a unit/task </li></ul>
  5. 5. How can we assess student learning? <ul><li>Traditional assessment: assess student knowledge and skills in relative isolation from real world context. </li></ul><ul><li>Traditional assessment practices reflect what students are able to recall from memory through various means, such as, multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, and matching questions. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How can we assess student learning? <ul><li>Authentic assessment: assess students’ ability to use what they’ve learning in tasks similar to those in the outside world. </li></ul><ul><li>Occurs when the authenticity of student learning has been observed. It requires information from a variety of source such as content work samples, observation during class activities, and conferences with students. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Classroom Assessment <ul><li>Informal Assessment: teachers’ spontaneous, day to day observations of student performances. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples </li></ul><ul><li>Verbal </li></ul><ul><li>-Asking questions </li></ul><ul><li>-Listening to student discussions </li></ul><ul><li>-Conducting student conferences </li></ul>
  8. 8. Informal Assessment <ul><li>Strengths </li></ul><ul><li>-Facilitates responsive teaching </li></ul><ul><li>-Can be done during teaching </li></ul><ul><li>-Easy to individualize </li></ul><ul><li>Weaknesses </li></ul><ul><li>-Requires high level of teacher skill </li></ul><ul><li>-Is vulnerable to </li></ul><ul><li>-Bias </li></ul><ul><li>-Inequities </li></ul><ul><li>-Mistakes </li></ul>
  9. 9. Portfolios <ul><li>A collection of student samples representing or demonstrating student academic growth. It can include formative and summative assessment. It may contain written work, journals, maps, charts, survey, group reports, peer reviews and other such items. </li></ul><ul><li>Portfolios are systematic, purposeful, and meaningful collections of students’ work in one or more subject areas. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Rubric <ul><li>It is a scoring guide that seeks to evaluate a student’s performance based on the sum of a full range of criteria rather than a single numerical score. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a working guide for students and teachers, usually handed out before the assignment begins in order to get students to think about the criteria on which their work will be judged. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Rubrics are scoring criteria for <ul><li>Free-response Questions </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific reports </li></ul><ul><li>Oral or Power point presentations </li></ul><ul><li>Reflections/Journals </li></ul><ul><li>Essay </li></ul><ul><li>Laboratory-based performance tests </li></ul><ul><li>Article review or reactions </li></ul><ul><li>Portfolios </li></ul><ul><li>Many others </li></ul>
  12. 12. Summary <ul><li>A fair assessment is one in which students are given equitable opportunities to demonstrate what they know and can do. </li></ul><ul><li>Classroom assessment is not only for grading or ranking purposes. Its goal is to inform instruction by providing teachers with information to help them make good educational decisions. </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment is integrated with student’s day-to-day learning experiences rather than a series of an end-of-course tests. </li></ul>
