the learning is assessed.

Evidence of understanding
Evidence of Understanding

  • Once we know what we are going to teach (Stage 1) we need to avoid jumping to how to teach it (Stage 3).

  • The focus of Stage 2 is determining what qualifies as evidence or proof that what we identified as most important in Stage 1.

Types of assessments
Types of Assessments

  • Quiz and Tests

  • Academic Prompts

  • Allows teachers to go back to a

    particular concept and provide

    add’l instruction or present

G = What is the goal of the task? What is it designed to assess?

R = What real-world role will the student assume as he/she is performing the task?
