Types of Literacy Assessment Matrix Part 1: Formal and Informal Assessments Literacy Assessment Formal or Informal Rationale How to avoid misuse Quick Write Informal Students have a posted question in which they must take their answer and present evidence to their answer to the question. Students are given 2 to 3 minutes to write about what they have gained from the lesson or what they have learned or read. Using Quick write helps assess what students know before starting a lesson or after the lesson is over. It should be used to reinforce skills like that summarizing rather than an entire essay. The assessment also allows for creative thinking and giving the time for student self-reflection. Argumentative and Persuasive Essays Formal Learners will compose an essay in which they must cite information from the text of a source to talk about the purpose and context that has influenced their crucial information. The students will rely on the support given to examine and write an essay in their own words with appropriate citations. Argumentative essays should present a point of view for the subject material covered and be based on solid evidence. At the same time, persuasive essays present a point of view that expresses how an individual gets others to understand their point. Emotions typically coincide with Persuasive essays that share an opinion.
