Formative assessments | Education homework help

 According to Chapter 1 of the required text, Formative assessment is assessment FOR learning. Summative assessment is assessment OF learning. Formative assessments occur during the lesson as opposed to the end of a unit of instruction and should be the primary focus of assessment in schools. Additionally, formative assessments allow the teacher to support learning by generating feedback to students to determine their current progress and where they are in relation to mastering the objective and/or standard.

Discuss:

  • How each teacher models what you read and learned about formative assessments?
  • What evidence did you see and hear regarding formative assessments being an assessment FOR learning?  More specifically, how did each teacher assess during learning?
  • How were they able to determine the current progress of their students in relation to mastering the objective?  How did each teacher model the provision of feedback?
  • What connections can you make between the teachers’ strategies to assess for learning and their eventual assessment of learning through a summative assessment? In other words, what can you see coming as preparation for a larger, more comprehensive summative assessment?

  • Chapter 1: Introduction to Learning and Assessment

HINT from the Teacher Below:

 

Hello Class,

I wanted to provide guidance on how to complete this discussion to ensure that you earn the most points as possible.  Please let me know if you have any questions along the way:

1.  Read Chapter 1 in the LeFranois text and watch the two videos.  

2.  Answer the following questions (the purple text will guide you further)

  • How each teacher models what you read and learned about formative assessments?

This is where I should see connections made between the teachers in the videos and what you read about in Chapter 1 about formative assessments.  I should see citations from the text in your response to support your answer.

  • What evidence did you see and hear regarding formative assessments being an assessment FOR learning?  More specifically, how did each teacher assess during learning?

Give specific examples from the video that showed how the teachers were using formative assessments for learning.  Again, this would also be a great place to make connections to what you learned in Chapter 1.

  • How were they able to determine the current progress of their students in relation to mastering the objective?  How did each teacher model the provision of feedback?

So, consider how the teachers were using the formative assessment to determine if the students were mastering the objectives.  How were the teacher providing feedback to the students through the use of the formative assessment?  Provide specific examples from the video to support your response.

  • What connections can you make between the teachers’ strategies to assess for learning and their eventual assessment of learning through a summative assessment? In other words, what can you see coming as preparation for a larger, more comprehensive summative assessment?

So, how is the teacher preparing the students through the use of formative assessments for the summative assessment (end of unit test)?  Discuss the specific strategies you see and how the teachers might be using them to prepare the students for the summative test.

**PLEASE NOTE: I should see reference made to the course materials, such as the LeFrancois text, to support your response. This is an important element of academic writing – using evidence to support your response.  Please cite and reference your source in APA.
