What is Performance Assessment?

What is Performance Assessment? | education | Scoop.it
Performance assessments are real-world scenarios that reflect the ambiguity of real-world challenges. They require higher-order thinking and problem solving. They are concluded with authentic performance.

One key part of the Common Core is performance assessments. One question many may have is just what is performance assessment. This post provides a number of descriptions of performance assessments including ones from ETS, five criteria from Wiggins and McTighe based on Understanding by Design and ASCD.

Performance tasks may include project-based learning, drawings, videos, and more.

There is also a discussion on four reasons to use performance assessment. They are:

* Personalized Learing

* Formative Assessment

* Competency Education

* Standards-based Education

Formative Assessments

If you can both listen to children and accept their answers not as things to just be judged right or wrong but as pieces of information which may reveal what the child is thinking, you will have taken a giant step toward becoming a master teacher, rather than merely a disseminator of information.

He stated that formative assessment is more important than summative assessment. Feedback is the most important aspect of learning. With proper feedback, the summative test grades will increase.

Bloom's revised Taxonomy with verbs!

Jim Lerman's curator insight, August 20, 12:55 PM

I'm on a personal campaign to add 2 levels above Creating to Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy (don't forget he wrote about 3 domains of learning...Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor). I believe our field tends to overemphasize the Cognitive domain at the expense of the other 2, and to the detriment of learners.

 

Anyhow, the 2 levels above Creating that I'm concerned about are: Reflecting and Sharing. My reasoning goes like this:

 

 

Reflecting Once we go through all 6 levels (and they are not hierarchical, a learning sequence can start or end with any of them), if we want students to enhance their metacognition, it is important for us to build in reflective experiences. Such experiences enhance students' abilities to be more self-aware of how they learn and the strategies that do or don't work well for them.

Sharing - We teachers often remark that our knowledge of a particular topic solidifies when we teach it to someone else...the act of sharing brings out our awareness of nuances, relationships, perceptions, modes of expression/communication, and our interpersonal skills of working with others; all things that are very important to people's success in our current era. Our students deserve to become proficient in sharing effectively.

 

My 2 cents.

This blog post by Larry Ferlazzo is a great resource. On this blog he gives a short synopsis of what formative assessment is and then he creates a sort of “best of” list of the websites and articles that have helped him think and plan for formative assessment. I think something that he has taught me has been showing me all that formative assessment can teach. It not only helps the students know where they are at but more importantly lets the teacher know where their students are at. It is very important for teachers to not just formally assess their students but to then take the information and let it change the way they are teaching. This will allow a teacher to react to changes and better help their students learn the material.

27 Characteristics Of Authentic Assessment

27 Characteristics Of Authentic Assessment

 

Almost 25 years ago, I wrote a widely-read and discussed paper that was entitled: “A True Test: Toward More Authentic and Equitable Assessment” that was published in the Phi Delta Kappan. I believe the phrase was my coining, made when I worked with Ted Sizer at the Coalition of Essential Schools, as a way of describing “true” tests as opposed to merely academic and unrealistic school tests. I first used the phrase in print in an article for Educational Leadership entitled “Teaching to the (Authentic) Test” in the April 1989 issue.

This article offers great insight into what authentic assessment is. It was very helpful in telling me precisely what authentic assessment is and how it can be used in the classroom. The author’s main point is that many people and educators have ruined the meaning of authentic assessment so he wants to clear the air and be very direct with his definition of authentic assessment. It will certainly try to implement authentic assessment into my classroom and teaching. Authentic assessment is much needed in our “standardized testing world.” If a teacher uses authentic assessment right they can help their students more fully and deeply understand the material they are being assessed on as well as grow in many “real world” skills. Authentic assessment provides a way in which students can take ownership of what they have learned and how they can apply it.

A Visual Chart on Summative Vs Formative Assessment ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Visual Chart on Summative Vs Formative Assessment ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | education | Scoop.it

This post is born out of a discussion I had with a fellow teacher on the Facebook page of Educational Technology and Mobile Learning on the differences between summative and formative assessment. Luckily this discussion coincided with me reading Frey and Fisher's book " Literacy 2.0 : Reading and Writing in The 21st Century Classroom." and there was a section in which the authors talked about these differences in a subtle way by referring to formative assessment as assessment for learning and summative assessment as assessment of learning.

This at-a-glance chart really defines summative and formative assessment concisely. I'm going to keep this chart handy so I don't confuse the two-types of assessment in the future. 

Kenny Evans's curator insight, April 13, 2014 9:13 PM

This is a helpful chart to help distinguish the difference between summative and formative assessment. I will keep this handy for when I'm deciding if my assessment is one of the two.
