Teachers May Need to Deepen Assessment Practices for Common Core

Teachers May Need to Deepen Assessment Practices for Common Core | Learning Design | Scoop.it
As teachers transition to common standards, experts say they may need to take on more of a "teacher- researcher" role in the classroom.

Key Points on Formative Assessment:


  • With the common standards, "classrooms will look different," said Heritage. "We'll need a lot more talking, more focus, more discourse, more depth."
  • "For many teachers, formative assessment has traditionally consisted of quick checks for understanding, Friday quizzes, or exit slips as students head out the door. But as the majority of teachers around the country transition to the Common Core State Standards—which are designed to emphasize complexity, critical thinking, and skills like collaboration and reasoning—some experts say more teachers need to deepen their assessment practices."
  • "If you're asking students to think critically, you have to have formative-assessment practices that tap into that critical thinking," - Nancy Frey
  • "We need to know if [students are] grappling with complex ideas," said Heritage, who mentored Lozano and Cadenas. "Where are they? Is the idea beginning to consolidate? What do I need to do to go deeper and really help them get this?"
  • All of that may be tough to measure with quick-answer questions or exit slips. Instead, to get a full picture of student understanding, teachers need to ask open-ended questions and push students to explore ideas aloud.
  • Frey of San Diego State University tells teachers that, when listening closely to students, "The question you have to ask yourself is not whether the answer is correct or incorrect, but rather what is it likely that that student knows and doesn't know in this moment in time that would lead him to that response?" "It takes a different kind of listening," Frey said, and rather than an innate talent, it is "a habit to be developed."
  • Rather than asking multiple-choice questions or scanning quickly for right and wrong, teachers will need to be attuned to what students are saying during those discussion and debate sessions.
  • "full-scale adoption of new assessment techniques will not happen overnight. "I see this as being a three-year process, even though we only have a year before PARCC starts."

And, have better results. …
