Every Teacher’s Guide to Assessment | Edudemic

Every Teacher’s Guide to Assessment | Edudemic | college and career ready | Scoop.it
It’s not a stretch to say that assessment is a hot button issue in education; however, you’d be hard pressed to find an educator who doesn’t see the value in measuring student progress. Assessments themselves have been vilified, when, in fact, it’s why assessments are given and how the data is used that is really the issue. The Glossary of Education Reform gives this great overview of what high-stakes testing is and how it impacts students, teachers, and schools. Basically, high-stakes testing has consequences for the test-takers and givers—sometimes in the form of a high school diploma, grade advancement, and even teachers’ salaries. But not all assessment is high-stakes, and when done thoughtfully, the right assessment can provide extremely useful information for all stakeholders—students, teachers, parents, schools, and policy-makers

Let’s take a look at what assessment is, why it’s important, and how it can be delivered in the classroom in a useful manner. Then we’ll dive into some resources available for each type of assessment—diagnostic, formative, and summative.
