  15. Story of Emily Scenario Review briefly the two writing samples (p. 7 and 8 in your book) Video clip of interview with Emily (also on your DVD). Assessment for Learning

  19. Assessment MatrixPam

  20. Thinking About Assessment 80 percent of assessments given in classrooms are geared toward low-level thinking. Decisions about assessment happen about every three to four minutes. What do assessments tell us? How are we using assessments to guide instruction?

  21. What Are You Assessing? • As a team, complete the Assessment Matrix • List all assessments: Summative and Formative

  22. What Are You Assessing? 20 Minutes

  23. How Are Results Being Used? • As a group, prioritize what assessment you would like to use as the focus for your first discussion. • Complete the Action Planning Template • If time allows, repeat process You will have 25 minutes to complete this activity.

  27. Unpacking StandardsPamJo and Janet

  28. Take time to discuss what your Body Of Evidence is based on and how your district determines which items to include. What discussions will you take back to your school? 5 minutes

  29. Unpacking Standards • First and foremost, the student has to be the center of everything in education. • Students need to know the performance standards – CLEARLY!

  30. Students need to know what curriculum we are using to address each standard. • Education needs a CONNECTION between standard, lesson and assessment PLUS the connection to real life.

  31. Assessment must be based on the benchmark. • We teach what we value, and we test what we teach.

  32. Students need to understand what the assessment will be like in terms of content, skills and format. • It’s hard to hit a target you can’t SEE.

  33. We must show kids what we want them to know prior to any instruction. • Instruction is based on the curriculum. • “Curriculum” does NOT mean “the textbook”.

  34. Assessments provide information for whom? • Where do the results go?

  35. The person most frequently omitted when we share assessment information is WHOM?

  36. The Student !!!

  37. In order for improvement to occur, students need to understand • why they are being assessed and • what the results of the assessment mean.

  38. Students need to understand that they are in school for a reason. • We must connect lessons and assessments to the real world.

  39. Assessment is not a number in a grade book; an AYP score printed in the paper; or the determiner for Valedictorian. • Assessment is for INFORMATION and FEEDBACK.

  40. How else do kids know WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW?

  41. Students need to compare the right answers to their answers and see where they went wrong. • Assessments should not simply say “Right” or “Wrong” .

  42. Assessments shouldn’t tell kids, “You’re dumb today. You were dumb yesterday. And you’ll probably be dumb tomorrow. But thanks for coming back.”

  43. The most important point is that assessments are NOT for scores. • ASSESSMENTS ARE TO HELP STUDENTS.

  44. We need to decide what the benchmark looks like in terms of student work, not just printed in a manual for teachers.

  45. We need to ask fewer questions that are better … not like the North Platte River – a mile wide and an inch deep, but like a segment of the oceanic Marianas Trench – 50 yards wide and 2 MILES deep.

  46. What do we REALLY want to know?
