Culminating Assessment

culminating assessment
Culminating Assessment
  • Is a summative assessment.
  • Is related to the unit’s overarching questions, texts, and key standards.
  • Provides a guide for the work in the unit.
  • Provides evidence of student understanding and proficiency of the identified CCSS and learning goals.
  • Allows for the construction of new knowledge or an extension of their thinking rather than a regurgitation of what students learned in the unit.

Culminating Assessment
  • Culminating assessments across a year should require a variety of writing genres & modes.
  • Once you’ve decided on a culminating assessment, make a list of what students need to know & be able to do to be successful. Design the unit with that as your guide (backward mapping).
  • Unit texts should be able to support much of what students need to know and be able to do.
  • Develop the culminating assessment with the rubric in mind.

Culminating Assessments: Writing Assignments

A good writing assignment is:

Focused on a single guiding question.

Composed so that the task or invitation to write is clearly visible.

Scaffolded so that students:

Understand the connection to the work that precedes it,

See clearly what is being asked of them, and

Find some help in imagining how to begin the writing.

what are text based questions and tasks
What Are Text-based Questions and Tasks?

Text-based questions are questions that

  • Are focused on the text
  • Are generally text-specific rather than generic questions that could be asked of any text
  • Do not get students off of the text (e.g., Tell me about a time you went camping…)
  • Require students to re-read the text closely to
      • Draw inferences
      • Develop interpretations
      • Analyze ideas and language
  • May promote convergent (comprehension) and divergent (interpretation/analysis) thinking about a text
what are open ended questions
What are open-ended questions?

Open-ended, text-based questions:

  • Allow multiple entry points for students. Students are able to answer the question from their perspective.
  • Have more than one possible response that can be supported with evidence from the texts.
  • Provide teachers with a window into students’ thinking and comprehension of a text.
  • Allow students to construct an overall understanding of a text.
  • Mirror the kinds of questions proficient readers ask themselves about a text. Proficient readers rarely concern themselves with the insignificant details that are often the subject of close-ended questions.
