The purpose of this Assignment is twofold. First, you will create an effective assessment tool to be used by students to show mastery of the learning objectives in your Five-day Instructional Unit. Second, you will create a scoring rubric to guide students as they work on their assessment.
In Unit 1, you choose your theme and objectives for your Five-day Instructional Unit. Now that you have determined the learning objective, you will create a product that will allow your students to show mastery of the standard(s).
For this assessment, you need to think of something other than a traditional “test” which the student will be able to complete and is aligned with the learning objectives of your instructional unit. Here are some assessment suggestions:
Create a simulation
Create a report which could be presented orally or in print
Create a group project
Create a task for others to complete / something the student would teach
Once you have created the assessment, you will then create a scoring rubric that tells students what a completed assignment or finished product should include and contain information which you, as the teacher, will use to determine a student’s score, grade, or level of mastery.
A sample rubric can be found in “Where Great Teaching Begins” figure 8.4 on p.143. (This has been uploaded)
