Methods & Purposes of Assessment Your Photo Album should include an explanation to your students on the purpose and methods of assessment they can expect from you and your course. You can equate it to a file of all the tools you have collected for a unit…every activity and/or summative or formative assessment. This allows the individual to “see” what the expectations are and how to achieve success Example: Students, • This Photo Album is an overview of the unit on xxxxxx (insert your unit name) so you can follow your progress as we complete the unit. • Please start by reading the entire assessment photo album requirements so you can see what information you should be concentrating on and what you need to collect as we proceed. • Periodically, you should review your progress while reading ahead to see what is expected of you for your final photo album. • Feedback and reflection are an important part of this process and will be part of our ongoing progress.
