Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

slide3
Assessment OF learning:occurs when teachers use evidence of student learning to make judgements on student achievement against goals and standards.

Assessment FOR learning:

occurs when teachers use inferences about student progress to inform

their teaching.

AssessmentASlearning:occurs when students reflect on and monitor their progress to inform their future learning goals.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

slide4
Assessment AS learning:

occurs when students reflect on and

monitor their progress to inform their

future learning goals.

It is regularly occurring, formal or informal (e.g. peer feedback buddies, formal self assessment) and helps students take responsibility for their own past and future learning. It builds metacognition as it involves students in understanding the standards expected of them, in setting and monitoring their own learning goals, and in developing strategies for working towards achieving them.

(Because it helps shape learning it is formative assessment.)

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

slide5
“Effective assessment empowers students to ask reflective questions and consider a range of strategies for learning and acting … students move forward in their learning when they can use their personal knowledge to construct meaning, have skills of self-monitoring to realize that they don’t understand something, and have ways of deciding what to do next.”

(Lorna Earl 2003, p. 25).

HOW have you organised assessment AS learning?

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

the purpose of assessment as learning is to
The purpose of assessment AS learning is to:

“• Increase learner autonomy

• Advance understanding of the subject

• Elevate the status of student from passive learner to assessor

• Involve students in critical reflection

• Demonstrate to students the concepts of subjectivity and judgement.”

(Hinnett & Thomas, 1999, cited on http://www.ucd.ie/teaching/assess/as9.htm)

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

slide8
Assessment as learning requires that students take an active role in their own learning and assessment.

To do this they must understand what is expected of them i.e. the Standards and your learning intentions for them.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

the student s role is to
The Student’s role is to:
  • develop their own learning goals
  • decide which strategies to use to achieve their goals
  • monitor their learning goals over time

(using reflective & metacognitive thinking, and self assessment tools)

• evaluate their achievements.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

the teacher s role is to
The Teacher’s Role is to:

• decide which broad short and longer term learning goals are appropriate for this class and these students

  • help students develop their own specific, manageable and worthwhile learning goals
  • provide structures and processes to support students in thinking reflectively and metacognitively to monitor their goals.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

assessment as learning strategies include
Assessment AS learning strategies include

• self-assessment that is free-writing in learning logs

• written reflections responding to prompts or probes

• oral discussion (with peers and/or the teacher)

• using checklists or rubrics

• metacognitive self-questioning

• using graphic organisers (concept maps, PMI tables)

• “traffic lighting” their own (or a peer’s) work

Encourage assessment of feelings as well as of thinking and doing because research shows that emotional involvement makes learning ‘stick’.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

“It is very difficult for students to achieve a learning goal unless they understand that goal and can assess what they need to do to reach it. So self-assessment is essential to learning.”

(Paul Black et al. 2003, p. 49).

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

traffic light where were you
“Traffic light” - where were you:

• Stopped?

  • Cautious?
  • Going

straight ahead?

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

self assessment involves students in
Self-Assessment involves students in

• “reflecting on past experience

• seeking to remember and understand what took place

• attempting to gain a clearer idea of what has been learned and achieved. …

• sharing responsibility for the organisation of their work

• keeping records of activities undertaken

• making decisions about future actions and targets.”

(Paul Weeden et al. 2002, p. 73).

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

self assessment
Self assessment

• can be the best feedback (as students understand what they need to do and are not waiting for teachers to give feedback)

• may initially need to be “scaffolded”

(e.g. by helping to decode the criteria in the rubrics you create/negotiate)

• must focus on the quality(not quantity) of the work - and on constructive criticism

• self-monitoring and self-correction can be

powerful motivators for improvement.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

rubrics can be useful when
Rubrics can be useful when:

• students assist in the rubric design process

• the rubric is used for assessment AS learning purposes by helping students understand what Standards are expected of them

• students use the rubric in peer and self assessment

• they empower students to become more self- directed in their learning - they understand where they are headed and know how to get there.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

sample prompts for written reflections
Sample prompts for written reflections:

“My strength today was …

“I feel frustrated when …

“I need to find out more about …

“I need help with …”

“What I can do to improve is …”

“My highest priority learning goal now is …”

The sentence stems need a short space between them

(3 or 4 are enough for any one reflection session).

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

peer assessment can be
Peer Assessment can be:

• observation (e.g. of an oral presentation)

• conferences or interviews (e.g.with a ‘draft buddy’)

• reading written reflections

• having email/e-Forum discussion

• a learning experience as students see how others work.

You can create protocols to keep peer assessment running smoothly.

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

gender matters in self and peer assessment
Gender matters in self and peer assessment

There are some gender differences in trends in peer and self-assessment:

• boys tend to be easier on themselves and harder on their peers (a bit too ruthless)

• girls tend to be harder on themselves and easier on their peers (a bit too kind)

(and this may be compounded in different

cultural, religious, and/or ethnic groups).

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

self assessment of group working together
Self assessment of group working together

• Did I encourage another person today?

• Did I help “block” a put-down today?

• Did I contribute an idea today?

• Did I use active listening today?

• Did I keep my hands & feet to myself today?

• Did I ask a useful question today?

Module 4 - Assessment AS Learning

peer assessment of group working together
Peer assessment of group working together:

• Did we settle quickly today?

• Did we keep our voices down today?

• Did we keep together today?

• Did we actively listen to each other?

• Did we concentrate on our tasks?

• Did we each have a chance to speak to the

whole group today?
