Flashcards in Role of Assessment Deck (3)
What are the types of assessment and when are they best used?
Pre-assessment/Pre-test: Occurs before instruction and helps teacher planning.
Formative Assessment: Occurs during instruction and may be informal. That is, the results may or may not be recorded for a grade. Examples include teacher observation, questioning, exit tickets, and/or quick-check assessments.
Summative/Post-Test Assessment: Occurs at the end of instruction. This assessment aligns with the objective. In direct instruction, this is often a test or quiz. Authentic assessments can also be summative.
Norm-Referenced Assessment: Will be a standardized or a competitive test. Students are ranked and/or compared to each other.
Criterion-Referenced Assessment: Usually a teacher-made test that matches the content of the lesson(s). Students show a proficiency level that is set by the teacher in the objective.
Authentic Assessments: These are assessments that measure student-centered types of instructional strategies that are performance-based.
What is authentic assessment used to measure? Examples?
Student critical thinking and high order skills. Usually performance based in real world applications. e.g. creating a monthly budget to understand profit and loss.
