  • Purpose of the Assessment

  • To gather information about what students already know and what they what their questions are concerning credit cards and their finances.

  • What I want to learn from my students?

  • I want to find out what they already know about the Unit Questions and what they know about using credit cards.

  • How I have tried to promote higher-order thinking?

  • I ask students to find relationships and draw conclusions about using credit and their financial future.

  • How the assessment information helps me and my students plan for upcoming activities in the unit?

  • If students have misconceptions about how to establish good credit, I can provide information for them to begin establish a financial foundation. If students have different levels of understanding about the importance of credit, I can provide various resources. We will revisit this assessment throughout the unit for students to add their knowledge.

  • What feedback or additional ideas I’d like?

  • I would like help on my assessment. I think I need to elicit more higher-order thinking, but I’m not sure how.
