21 st century assessment at reagan

21st Century Assessment at Reagan

21 st century assessment
21st Century Assessment

  • Reagan underwent a change in assessment (grading)in recent years

  • Old assessment methods do not serve the students well

  • In the past, students could simply show up to class, behave, turn in their work (even if the work was poor), do average on their tests and receive a good grade.

  • Not anymore!!

21 st century assessment1
21st Century Assessment

  • The goal for any class is to meet a set of learning objectives

  • If a student meets or exceeds the learning objectives they should be rewarded

  • Generally, teachers reward students based on their level of compliance

21 st century assessment2
21st Century Assessment

  • When these students went to college or into the workforce, they were not able to have the same level of success…


  • Why? What do you think they were expected to do that they had not been asked to do before???

21 st century assessment3
21st Century Assessment

  • In your courses you will have two different types of assessment:

    • Practice

    • Evidence

21 st century assessment4
21st Century Assessment

Practice: Practice activities are those done in and out of the classroom throughout each unit to prepare you for mastery of the objectives. There will be multiple opportunities for you to practice without penalty. small assignments.


  • Examples: oral participation, paired and group activities, presentations, homework, in-class work, debates, discussions

  • Do you have to do the practice work? YES!


  • Why???


  • If you don’t, you will not master the learning objectives, you may not retake assessment, and you risk not earning credit for the course.

  • Practice is very important!



  • Right now, most of you are here:


  • But you want to be here. How will you get there?






Evidence: Evidence are tasks that are completed in and out of the classroom to demonstrate your mastery of the objectives. BIG assignments!

Evidence is the way that YOUprove you met the learn objective.


  • Evidence can be in any form but generally it will be:

    • Tests, quizzes, projects, presentations, debates, essays, research papers


  • For your evidence, you will receive one of the following:

    AD-- Advanced: The student exhibits exceptional mastery of the course objective.

    PR-- Proficient: The student provides good mastery of the course objective. 

    BA-- Basic: The student provides evidence of a beginning mastery of the course objective. 

    MI--Minimal: The student attempts the task but provides no evidence of mastery of the objective described.

    O--No Evidence: No evidence was submitted.


  • In the past if you had the following grades, what would your final grade be?

    48% Test 1

    64% Test 2

    88% Test 3

    66%(average)= D


  • Under the new assessment system we are only interested in what your final level of mastery is.

    48% Test 1

    64% Test 2

    88% Test 3

    88% = B

Final grades
Final Grades

  • Each semester is 18 weeks

  • Your grade will reflect everything done during the 18 weeks

  • You will receive an update at 9 weeks but your grade will not start over


  • How will this new grading system help you?


  • Questions???

  • Comments
