Possible Assessment Process:1. Unwrap outcomes and plan for differentiation
2. Pre-assess outcomes using resources like Numeracy Nets, DNA, MMS, or Saskatchewan Common Math Assessments
3. Plan activities for the unit
4. Use pre-assessment to create individual student goals
5. Conference with individual students or small groups to monitor student goals throughout the unit (formative assessment)
6. Complete post-assessment for the unit
7. The NESD has developed some excellent rubrics that can be helpful for reporting purposes. Click here to visit their rubric web site.
Students with Differentiated and Adapted Instruction
ASSESSMENT PROCESS AND MATH NOTEBOOK:A math notebook (Pensieve) should be developed to keep track of individual student’s progression with curricular outcomes. Outcome rubrics, Assessment focus questions, and student reflections can be kept together to show evidence of learning for each student. Goal setting meetings with individual students and record keeping for instructional groups can also be part of the math notebook.
Assessment for learning may include both diagnostic(initial) tasks and formative(ongoing) tasks. The Assessment Focus question found in each lesson may be used as a formative assessment task, the Explore may be used as a diagnostic assessment task.
Assessment as learning engages students in self-assessment to develop their metacognitive skills.
Assessment of learning may include summative assessment such as unit tests.
