3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment

3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment | Orton-Gillingham, Dyslexia | Scoop.it

"As we’ve discussed 7 myths about rigor, and the characteristics of rigor in curriculum, the final component is rigorous assessment. There are (at least) three aspects of rigorous assessments."

We've been talking a lot lately about "authentic" assessment.


Here are the three statements discussed in this post. 

1. The Assessment Is Appropriate

2. The Assignment Is Purposeful

3. The Assessment Promotes Understanding

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 8, 5:53 PM

Rigourous curriculum and assessment is important. These three points are ones that we are continuously focus on. A good read,

Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 8:35 PM

This is a great resource that really describes clearly and concisely what makes a great assessment but it took it one step further by talking about rigor. The first point is that good assessments need to be appropriate. This talks about how the assessment needs to be about what students learned but more importantly it needs to talk about and address what the students learned in a challenging way. If the assessment is too easy then students will not be truly assessed on the material and thus the assessment will be weak. The second point is that assessment needs to be purposeful. It is good for your students to finish an assessment and for them to clearly see what they have produced from that assessment. The third point is that the assessment should allow students to come away with some deeper form of understanding on the topic. I think something that I have taken away from this article is that assessment can be a great tool for deepening students understanding and really giving them something to be able to look back and know that they have accomplished something.

this article gives great insight into apps that will help with developing or expanding explanations adding visual and contextual focus.

My students really enjoy the simplicity and effectiveness of the Show Me app. I have a teacher account and share our class student created lesson on our edmodo site for  review whenever the student needs it.

Visualizing Text: The New Literacy of Infographics

Visualizing Text: The New Literacy of Infographics | Orton-Gillingham, Dyslexia | Scoop.it
Infographics are modern, written artifacts about collected resources in a dynamic, visual format. Infographics should be viewed as complex, standalone texts, not simply a text feature or graphic element.

Via Beth Dichter
Kerri Schaub's insight:

Visualizing is a powerful multisensory technique.

Greenwich Connect's curator insight, January 20, 7:28 AM

Slightly overblown tone, presumably to help what is a useful overview of infographics sound more "academic" - read between the lines for what students should think through and how they should approach their own infographic production

rwestby's curator insight, January 20, 3:15 PM

Food for thought...could this be the new book report format?

Turning Struggling Students into Superheroes: Comic Books as Teaching Tools

Turning Struggling Students into Superheroes: Comic Books as Teaching Tools | Orton-Gillingham, Dyslexia | Scoop.it
Drawing from personal experience, graduate student Michael Strom demonstrates the tremendous teaching power of comic books and graphic novels, and how we can use these as literary tools to reach our struggling students.

I dense, yet interesting, read.

Audrey's curator insight, January 21, 4:14 PM

Brilliant.  I absolutely agree.  Can be particularly helpful for foreign students learning English.

Lena Leirdal's curator insight, August 30, 4:42 AM

Coming across the reluctant reader in the classroom in not uncommon. This is a link to a excerpt from a graduate thesis about using graphic novels and comics to teach struggling male readers. I tried teaching graphic novels in my own classroom this spring, and even though I thought it went quite well, I still have to become a bit more acquainted and comfortable with the genre. I will most definitely give it another try this year!

 

I find inspiration to do so in Michael Storm´s point that "we need to teach young boys that literacy still is the ultimate adventure, and they too have the chance to be the hero".

While I never use rubrics found online wholesale, they certainly give good ideas for creating units and our own rubrics.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 17, 11:01 PM

In this post Jackie Gerstein provides a great list of books that you could use to teach children about the skills and attributes that they need to learn. She states " Children’s books, as they are written and presented as stories, have great potential to explain these often abstract concepts.  There is also evidence that the brain processes stories differently and more powerfully than facts and lectures."

The stories are divided into sections:

* Grit

* Resilience

* Hope & Optimism

* Vision

* Self-Regulation

* Empathy & Global Awareness

There is also a list of books suggested by Tony Wagner in the areas of Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Collaboration and Curiosity and Imagination.

Although geared to children some are appropriate for older students.
