What to assess1

What to Assess

  • 5. Consider NAEP assessment frameworks.

  • 6. Ask for advice from a colleague.

  • 7. Analyze state content standards and accountability exams.


Curricular aims

Curricular Aims

A Curricular Aim can apply to long-term educational goals, to very precise short-term outcomes, or to anything in between.

Popham uses various grain sizes to describe the specificity of Curricular Aims.


Curricular aims1

Curricular Aims

Popham stresses the importance of having clear curricular aims for assessment prior to instruction.

These curricular aims must be selected and/or developed within the context of gathering Decision-Driven Assessment information.


Curricular aims2

Curricular Aims

A Curricular Aim should include 3 components:

1.Behavior Component

2.Conditions Component

3.Criteria Component


Curricular aims3

Curricular Aims

The behavior component describes exactly what the student will be able to do after mastering the Curricular Aim.

The behavior component must include a demonstrable action verb.


Curricular aims4

Curricular Aims

The conditions component describes the conditions under which the curricular aim will be performed. Examples include:

with the aid of a calculator

given a periodic table

using a map of the world


Curricular aims5

Curricular Aims

The criteria component defines how the evaluator will determine whether or not the Curricular Aim has been met. Examples include:

4 out of 5 times

all three branches of the government

Bloom s taxonomy1

Bloom’s Taxonomy

You have probably encountered Bloom's Taxonomy many times in your varied educational experiences.

This activity is designed to force you to consider the explicit implications of this taxonomy on assessment.


Bloom s taxonomy2

Bloom’s Taxonomy

  • In tonight’s activity, you will work in groups of 3 or 4 to create Curricular Aims that cover each of the six levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.


Curricular aims6

Curricular Aims

Phase 1 - Groups of 3 or 4

Select an area of the curriculum that is familiar to all members of the group.


Curricular aims7

Curricular Aims

  • The content chosen should be approximately the amount that could be covered in two weeks.


Curricular aims8

Curricular Aims

Develop six Curricular Aims, one at each of the levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.

Write down your Curricular Aims so that you can easily share them with the rest of the class.


Curricular aims9

Curricular Aims

Phase 2 - Whole Class

Each group reads one or two of their Curricular Aims to the class, one at a time, in random order.


Curricular aims10

Curricular Aims

Other groups guess which level of Bloom's Taxonomy each Curricular Aim is intended to cover.

Each Curricular Aim is discussed with regard to the clarity of each component.


Curricular aims11

Curricular Aims

Phase 3 - Whole Class

Discuss what you learned about the nature of assessment from this activity. Be prepared to share your thoughts with the whole class.


Curricular aims12

Curricular Aims

Phase 4 - Whole Class

Each group reports their thoughts regarding the discussion in phase 3.

The whole class participates in a closure discussion concerning the entire class activity.
