Instruction and Assessment Statement
When do you assess?
- Assessment is an ongoing process that should be happening every class. If a student starts to feel lost or does not understand information, they will continue to fall behind if that is not addressed.
- Using both summative and formative assessment throughout a lesson and at the end. These take the form of both assessing students growth and understanding of the topic and helping students self asses their own understanding of a topic.
How does assessment influence instruction?
- Lessons grow and change on a day to day basis depending on what the students understand or what parts of a lesson need to be changed for better understanding.
- Assessment allows for differentiation to be planned and used to its fullest
- Creating instruction and assessments that align to the state standards
What does assessment look like?
- Assessment comes in many forms and can be used for many different reasons.
- One-on-one discussions to help students push ideas and to check for understanding on the lesson.
- Taking a show of hands, thumbs up thumbs down, to establish group understanding of a topic.
- Students working in sketchbooks or activities to self reflect on their own growth.
