Different types of assessments and the data
It’s important to understand that assessment is not a separate entity from instruction but an integral part of it. Assessment helps teachers determine whether the goals of education are being met and ultimately should be used to inform instruction. Gathering relevant assessment data and knowing how to use it is an important skill for a teacher to have.
This 2-part assignment reinforces the different types of assessments and the data generated from those assessments and provides an opportunity to incorporate assessment into planning a lesson.
Part 1: Assessment Resource
Create a 2-page resource that explains assessment best practices and addresses the following topics:
Formative and summative assessments
Product- and performance-based assessments
Uses of assessment data
Include the following for each topic:
Explanation of purpose
Example with a description
Part 2: Lesson Plan
Develop a 45-minute classroom lesson plan for a specific elementary grade level and academic content area. You may not use a lesson plan from an already published source.
