students with special or emotional needs in my classroom to pair with students who can help them in completing class work. Technology is employed in my classroom as an instructional strategy. Students prefer “the infusion of technologies to help them learn and enjoy the process of learning, rather than having to listen exclusively to lectures” (Lumpkin, Achen, & Dodd, 2015, 114). Online games such as Kahoot and YouTube videos helped me n engaging students in ELA classroom. Online resources and practice were a supportive tool in mathematics lesson , too.
BENCCHMARK ASSESMENT 17 Formative assessment is a tool that teachers may “manipulate to change and control students’ approach to learning” (Adnan & Abdullah, 2019, p.298). I have used formative assessment by observing students’ performance in ELA lesson group activities. I use exit quiz in the form of two questions to evaluate classroom performance and get feedback about the lesson instruction. Summative assessment is a tool to measure students’ level of understanding. To make sure that all students respond to my assessment, I include different items that address students’ different needs. For example, for gifted students, I include more challenging questions in both ELA and math tests. The goal is to differentiate assessment so as it meets students’ diverse needs. Quizzes during the lesson as well as work sheet were utilized to measure students’ performance and understanding. Based on the quiz and assessment results, I would differentiate instruction to make sure it meets all students’ needs. The chosen assessment contributes to students’ development because it addresses different students’ levels. I linked assessment to the lesson objectives and standards by including multiple choice items that directly linked to the lesson objectives and standards. For example, in ELA assessment, all assessment items addressed the core standard of “demonstrating understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings”. Summative assessment is intended to measure and evaluate student outcome (Tomlinson, 2001).The summative assessment works to meet the various learning needs of the students in my class profile. Since my classroom includes students, Students with different disabilities, gifted students, students with low reading and math performance, I attempt to differentiate assessment items to address all students; backgrounds and academic levels. In ELA assessment, I provided clear directions and listed prompts that are suitable for all students’ needs.
