Assessments by Mind Map: Assessments

1. Formative

1.1. Definition: A method of gathering evidence of student learning while providing constructive feedback. Throughout this assessment method, adjusted instruction strategies may be required to reach achievement goals. Along with implementing this form of assessment, learners can change behaviors. The cycle for this method is: gather evidence of learning, evaluate evidence, feedback, and adjust instruction.

1.1.1. Example: Quizzes

1.1.2. Example: Pretests

2. Interim/Benchmark

2.1. Definition: This method of assessment is periodically testing throughout the school year. It is low-level with little to no student feedback. It is considered more formal rather than informal due to the style of testing.

2.1.1. Example: 6 or 9 week exams (district)

2.1.2. Example: Chapter test

3. Summative

3.1. Definition: This method of assessment takes place at the end of a large chunk of learning. this is where reviewing of what you want to do takes place. This form of assessment includes criteria for ensuring high-quality assessment and representative samples of student knowledge and work. The assessments should be scheduled as well.

3.1.1. Example: final exams

3.1.2. Example: Major cumulative projects

4. Performance

4.1. Definition: This method of assessment will demonstrate if a student has mastered skills in the area of concentration that is being assessed.

4.1.1. Example: Student logs

4.1.2. Example: Journals

5. Diagnostic

5.1. Definition: This form of assessment is set in place to measure the quality and effectiveness of educational tools and programs used to implement learning strategies in schools and classrooms. It allows for teachers to see student difficulties and helps guide teachers to better lesson plans.

5.1.1. Example: pretest

5.1.2. Example: posttest

6. H.O.T. Questions

6.1. Opening Questions

6.1.1. 1. Science 2.10C: What are some examples of insects that go through life cycles?

6.1.2. 2. Science 2.10C: What are some examples of organisms that do not have the same type of lifecycle as insects?

6.2. Guiding Questions

6.2.1. 1. Science 2.10C: I wonder why humans do not go through life cycles similar to insects. Why do you think humans do not go through the same type of lifecycle as insects?

6.2.2. 2. Science 2.10C: I wonder why insects do not go through life cycles similar to humans. Why do you think humans do not go through the same type of lifecycle as insects?
