Cake Story The cake is the Summative Assessment – but what did it take to get to this point? Formative Learning along the way
School Wide Rubrics allow for students to see standard grading. School wide rubrics can and should be altered to suit department/individual needs. Tests- Less DOK level 1 and 2 questions, more level 3 and 4-these have a rubric as well.

Competency/Standards Based Learning Environment
Stage 1 - Guiding Questions1. What will students understand (about what big ideas) as a result of the unit? “Students will understand that… [competency/learning goal]2. What arguable, recurring, and thought-provoking questions will guide inquiry and point toward the big ideas of the unit? [Essential Question]
Stage 1 (cont’d)3. What are the performance indicators at the course level that should be incorporated into the unit design? (i.e. What should students know and be able to do?)

Summative Assessment For summative assessment to be valid it must be aligned to competencies and performance indicators. The measure of proficiency should be determined through use of rubrics for the performance indicators. For an assessment to be authentic, it must be relevant to the student’s interests, engaging through creation of products of learning where the student has the opportunity to use his/her voice/choice. Summative assessments should be designed to Webb’s Depth of Knowledge at Levels 3 and/or 4. These summative assessments are only valid if students have had learning tasks at Levels 3 and 4 leading up to the summative assessment.
Formative Assessment Formative assessment INFORMS both the teacher and student relative to the building of content and skill on a day to day basis. Student progress can be tracked informally through the use of checklists of skills and content associated with a competency. This informs the teacher’s response to the learning needs of the students on a day to day basis and GUIDES INSTRUCTION. Students should be able to see their progress leading to mastery along the way. Formative tasks and assessments should be used flexibly to develop skills and content mastery. Students who have demonstrated skill and content mastery may not be required to do additional formative tasks. Students who have demonstrated competency on these tasks are then presented with more complex activities.
Formative assessment is informing teachers and students of progress. Not all formative assessments require a grade in Infinite Campus. Students should be provided with opportunities to self- assess their learning progress. When student learning is supported through effective formative assessment, relearning opportunities naturally occur as part of this process. Students receive timely, frequent, and descriptive feedback based on daily learning.
Stage 3: Instruction Elements of Differentiation Every Unit should have: Opportunities to learn in whole class, group, and independently Flexible grouping using readiness, student interest, and student learning profiles throughout unit Respects entry point into the learning by using pre-assessment information Student choice and voice guide learning and engagement
Stage 4: Grading1. Rubrics for Performance Indicators (PI) are designed to A,B,C,NYC.2. Project based learning is guided by rubrics.3. Grades are recorded by competency and weighted either formative or summative.4. Grading Philosophy statement should guide all grading practices. SPAULDING HIGH SCHOOLInternational Langu

WHEN DO YOU ASSESS?Traditionally, teachers haveassessed students at the end of aninstructional unit or sequence.However, when assessment andinstruction are interwoven, boththe students and the teacherbenefit.
ASSESSMENT PROCESS Pre –Summative AssessmentAssessment (Assessment OF Learning) Formative Assessment (Assessment FOR Learning)
PRE-ASSESSMENT The purpose of pre-assessment is to determine what students know about a topic before it is taught. Pre-assessment will help the teacher determine flexible grouping patterns and should be used regularly.
FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTAssessments FOR learning happens while learning is still underway.These are assessments that: are conducted throughout teaching and learning to diagnose student needs plan the next steps in instruction provide students with feedback they can use to improve the quality of their work help students see and feel how they are in control of their journey to success

SUMMATIVEASSESSMENT This type of assessment is a successful end product and/or the fulfilling of the pre-stated objective.
SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENTA summative assessment/evaluation is designed to: provide information make judgments about student achievement at the end of a sequence of instruction, (e.g., final drafts/attempts, tests, exam, assignments, projects, performances) It is a means to determine a student’s mastery and understanding of information, skills, concepts, or processes.

Classroom AssessmentsSome teachers Some teachers talk about: talk about:LEARNING GRADES VERSUS Can these co-exist peacefully? Should one receive emphasis over the other?
SOME FINAL THOUGHTS Formative Assessment: Refers to what happens on a daily basis in the classroom Provides teachers with information about specific next instructional steps for students: Assessment Drives Instruction. Students know where they are at instructionally and where they need to go On-going assessment provides continual feedback that helps students progress over time

The weight to be used for Formative and Summative Assessment All weights need to be consistent for the COURSE and may not vary from instructor to instructor.•Plan to review the competencies and weights annually to update.Currently, we are not planning to update the weights midyear.•Remember there are no quarters – grades will be rolling and reportedout on a biweekly basis.•Final exams no longer exist – they become cumulative, summativeassignments.
