My summative assessment comes in the form of a generic chapter test: LA Block 1 – Form A. Half of it is comprised of selected response, the other half being short answer. This test is prescribed as part of the curriculum of the school, so I dont have a lot of room to adjust it. It is, however, a pretty good test for measuring the base knowledge of the concepts.
As a pre-assessment to gauge students knowledge entering the unit I took the selected response questions from form B of their block test. (Pre-Test) To provide students a more accurate response option I included a choice “e” which is “have not seen this type of question before.”
As summative assessment I have assigned practice questions from the book or provided a practice activity for the skills covered each day. This will act as a measure of the day to day progress of students, and help regulate my pacing through the concepts. I also plan to have student do exit/entrance writes throughout the unit to help gauge students’ affect toward the lessons and their perceived ability with the skills.
