  6. 8. <ul><li>Principle #1: (Criteria Comprehension=Success) </li></ul><ul><li>Students should know and understand the criteria teachers use to judge what is: </li></ul><ul><li> Good/Bad </li></ul><ul><li> Correct/Incorrect </li></ul><ul><li> Successful/Unsuccessful </li></ul><ul><li>Principle #2: (Diverse Students=Diverse Evaluative Tools) </li></ul><ul><li>Every student is uniquely individual, therefore, to accurately gain insight into students knowledge, understanding, and abilities, it is important to use a variety of evaluative tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Principle #3: (Immediate Feedback) </li></ul><ul><li>Students should receive immediate feedback from their teachers as it encourages and motivates </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>

  8. 11. <ul><li>Use of a learning journal can help students to track how far they have come in their learning and give them something to be proud of. </li></ul>
  9. 12. My Learning Journal What were three main things I learned from this unit? What have I changed my mind about, as a result of this session? What did we not cover that I expected we should? One thing I learned in this session that I may be able to use in future is… I am still unsure about…
  10. 13. <ul><li>Do you believe that final grades are representative of a students learning? </li></ul><ul><li>How do you plan to differentiate evaluation to include all learning styles and make evaluation fair? </li></ul>
  11. 15. <ul><li>Two forms of evaluation are often referred to as summative and formative. </li></ul>
  12. 16. <ul><li>Definition: Evaluation that leads to on-sight decision-making. </li></ul><ul><li>An example of formative evaluation would be a mad minute in math class, it is quick and allows you to know if the students are learning a particular topic in class. </li></ul>
  13. 17. <ul><li>Definition: Evaluation that wraps-up and serves as a final grading of what students have learned after the topic or unit has been completed. </li></ul><ul><li>An example of summative evaluation would be a final exam or a report card that gives final grades. </li></ul>
  14. 18. <ul><li>If we are evaluating everything this would mean not all evaluations would be formal. </li></ul><ul><li>What are the benefits of constant evaluation? </li></ul><ul><li>By evaluating everything it shows students that what you as a teacher are asking students to do is important. </li></ul><ul><li>By evaluating constantly you can easily have enough material to create a formal final evaluation such as a report card. </li></ul><ul><li>When students know their work will “count for marks” they tend to take their work seriously and strive to do well on assignments. </li></ul>
  15. 19. <ul><li>There are 2 problems with constant evaluation, </li></ul><ul><li>Students think that the only form of evaluation is a test </li></ul><ul><li>Students become dependant on marks as a way to motivate themselves, while learning is supposed to be a self motivating activity </li></ul>
  16. 20. <ul><li>There are many different forms of evaluation besides exams </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Writing assignments </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Journal writing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Student presentations </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cooperative skills, ie: group work </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Physical skills </li></ul></ul></ul>
