Why did you choose this assessment(s)? How do the chosen assessment(s) help you determine if your students met the goals/objectives? What do your pre-assessment, formative assessments, and summative assessments tell you about the learning of your group of P-12 students? I choose to use formative types of assessment for much of my lesson; for instance, observations, a graphic organizer, and an exit ticket. Formative assessments allow me to quickly gauge the level of understanding by students so that I can adjust the lesson if need be. This way I can, through observation and checking of the graphic organizer, correct misunderstandings or reinforce skills by merely watching and listening to students. The exit ticket will allow for me to plan for reteaching and guide my decisions for the next step or lesson. Formative assessment will help me determine if students have achieved objectives 1, 2, 3, and 8. I created a rubric for a summative assessment that will allow me to determine if students have met the objectives 4-7. A rubric provides students with the exact requirements of the assignment. It also helps me in determining in what specific areas students are excelling or where students may need some more clarification. How will you use this assessment data to inform your instruction? Use current literature (within the last five years) to support your rationale. I will use the exit ticket and graded rubric to guide me for my next lesson. The responses and grades on these assessments will determine if I revisit this skill or move forward with comprehension instruction. My observations will allow me to adjust my lesson and objectives according to student’s responses and abilities to perform tasks. I will also be able to determine if I need to take a small group of students and differentiate instruction. According to the United States Department of Education (2011), “In order for student data and data systems to have a positive influence on student learning, teachers not only need to locate, analyze, and interpret data, but also to plan and provide differentiated instruction through techniques such as individualized learning plans, flexible grouping strategies, and alternative instructional approaches geared to different student profiles” (p. 36). 12
