three key principles for creating an effective assessment plan
Three key principles for creating an effective assessment plan

ensuring that students have a clear understanding of what they are learning and what successful learning looks like;

modelling descriptive feedback, self-assessment, and goal setting; and

providing opportunities to practise these skills, first with guidance and support and then independently.

3 key questions for learners
3 Key Questions for Learners

Assessment for learning is about far more than testing more frequently or providing teachers with evidence so that they can revise instruction, although these steps are part of it. In addition, we now understand that assessment for learning must involve students in the process.

(Stiggins, 2002)

Where am I going?

How am I going?

Where to next?

Assessment for/as learning:



Assessment for/as learning:

Cluster Course Expectations



Assessment for/as learning:



Assessment for/as learning:


What do I want them to learn?

How will I know they have learned it?

How will I design the learning so that all will learn?

Planning with the End in Mind


How will students demonstrate their knowledge and skills while they are learning?

How will we monitor their progress?

Exit cards, journal entries, observation, conversations, …

How will I plan with DI in mind?

What instructional strategies are appropriate for the learners in my class?

Planning with the End in MindSubject Specific Application

Start with Overall Expectations

Create Learning Goals – use Specific

Expectations to develop Learning Goals that support the learning toward achieving OEs.

Use verbs that are specific and observable.

What do I want them to learn?

Step 1

subject specific application

How will I know they have learned it?

Subject-specific Application

Step 2

Work alone or together in subject/grade groups to develop a Rich Performance task for a cluster of Learning Goals developed from the overall expectations of a particular course.


Revise a recently used Performance Task so that it is differentiated according to student interests or preferences.

Tasks should provide opportunities to collect assessment information that is triangulated

Use the blank templates provided


How will I know they have learned it?

Planning with the End in Mind

Think of Assessment as part of the learning

  • Keep in mind the key features of Differentiated Instruction:
  • Flexible Learning Groups
  • Choice
  • Respectful Tasks
  • Shared Responsibility
  • As the learning moves forward it is important to consider:
  • How the teacher will know whether the students achieved the desired learning.
  • How students will know whether they achieved the learning goal(s).

An Assessment Task That Allows for Differentiation

Curriculum Expectations and Creation of Learning Goals and Success Criteria

Should not be differentiated

Start Here!

Create a task that aligns with the goals and criteria and can also be differentiated by


–Start where they are!


-Make it meaningful and relevant

Learner Profile

-Build on their strengths!
