1.1.1. Discussion- Students participate in a class discussion to show their understanding of the topic.

1.1.2. Exit ticket quiz - Student are given an exit ticket to complete to help the teacher assess their learning.

2. Interim/Benchmark

2.1. Periodic testing throughout the school year that uses projects, written assignments or tests the occur about every 6 weeks and have little to no feedback.

2.1.1. TELPAS - Is progress monitoring system of support that tests writing, speaking, listening and reading test that will assess English Language Learners on their progress each year.

2.1.2. Benchmark - Is a district wide, bi-quarterly assessment that measures student progress. The assessments are given to measure student growth up to the STAAR assessment at the end of the year.

3. Summative

3.1. Is the assessment given after a unit or end of the year. It is a measurement of the student's learning throughout the unit or year.

3.1.1. STAAR- the STAAR test is given to all students, state-wide and is not only measures student learning, but also measures how effectively a teacher is teaching.

3.1.2. Science Fair - large research-based project that assesses a students' understanding, use and implementation of the scientific method.

4. Performance

4.1. Is an assessment that requires a student to perform a task.

4.1.1. STEM project - Students use creation and innovation to apply their knowledge of science to complete a project.
