3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment

3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment | Best practices | 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

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, 2014 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.

There are many learning models that we may explore, and this one is presented a bit differently than others I have seen. Quoting from the post "The goal of the model is simple enough–not pure academic proficiency, but instead authentic self-knowledge, diverse local and global interdependence, adaptive critical thinking, and adaptive media literacy."

There are nine domains in this model (listed below) and the post provides additional information.

* Five Learning Actuators

* Changing Habits

* Transparency

* Self-Initiated Transfer

* Mentoring and Community

* Changing Roles

* Climate of Assessment

* Thought and Abstraction

* Expanding Literacies

Las características reflejadas en el esquema y explicadas en el artículo sobre el modelo de enseñanza en el siglo XXI, están íntimamente ligadas  a la tendencia BYOD, como se refleja en el rol que videojuegos, la curación de contenidos, el cambio de papel de "estudiante receptor" a "estudiante creador de conocimiento", implicación en la enseñanza de todos los entornos del estudiante o la actuación del profesor como curador y guía en el conocimiento-aprendizaje de los alumnos.

The infographic includes five pieces of support material, including over 60 SAMR examples and resources. There are also four questions that may help you determine if the technology is an enhancement or transformative. One is below.

* Does the technology/tool allow for collaboration (e.g. within a school, district, state, nation, globe, experts, PLN)?

This post is chock full of information as well as introducing the new acronym SASSY (see infographic above).
