This course begins with the basics of classroom assessment, then goes on to discuss the principles behind using assessment to differentiate instruction. Participants create a variety of assessments to evaluate different types of student work and inform teacher’s instructional practices to improve student learning.
Participants will be able to:
• Identify and define different assessment methods according to three categories: Assessment of Learning; Assessment for Learning; and Assessment as Learning
• Examine different grading systems and apply one that best communicates student progress and achievement to others
• Analyze multiple sources of data to identify patterns in student learning and knowledge
• Draw conclusions and change or modify teaching practices, based upon assessment data
